Lucerne, Pilatus, and Lauterbrunnen are all great places to go, but I'd be concerned about November weather. We did Lauterbrunnen in September, and even then sunny days were hit or miss (we were...

Also not available with the standard seat on US models. It's only available on the non-power standard seat, and the US models will have both front seats powered. Too bad, that's a feature I would...

I think you could do it as either a day trip or a longer trip. Longer would allow you to see other nearby sights, like those near Berchtesgaden. If driving the car to Salzburg is not the reason for...

The roundel would need to be bigger than the suction cup, but the suction cup on my GoPro mount is just under 3 1/2 in. diameter and the roundel on the front of my 335 is a bit smaller than that.
