neurom, who should I ask for at the Warwick dealership? I live on Aquidneck Island and have been eyeing the X1. The thought of an ED just occurred to me and so I'm trying to get up to speed on the process. BMW of Newport doesn't seem to be knowledgeable on it.

Great to have feedback to chisel the trip. Thanks!

Agree, this is a really nice itinerary.

I've driven a portion of that route (non ED).

in St Remy - you can get a walking tour map from the local tourist office and do a nice self-guided tour (clearly marked) that takes you from the town center to the asylum along the points that served as inspiration for Van Gogh's paintings. Nice walking tour.

Don't forget the town of Bonnieux - the views from there are spectacular.

Same for Lacoste. Marquis de Sade castle ruins and awesome views.
