2016 M3 ED Trip Report

Alright - so it hasn't really started yet but it is only 4 days away and I needed to get something going to fuel my anxiety
I'll use this thread to report as I can along the way.
Nearly all accommodation has been booked through AirBnB so will be interesting

So the Itinerary (attached is a map)
Sunday 12th - Cairo to MUC via FRA - 10 PM arrival.
Mon 13th - 9 AM abbreviated pickup (chuck me the keys - I've been reading the manual on the App for months) then race to Rostock for a 1700 ferry (in reality it might be the 1900 ferry and head to Copenhagen Hilton where my family will have arrived earlier that evening. This will be a long day - but I am going to love it. Just me and the car to get acquainted before the family arrive.

14th - head to Samso Island to spend the rest of the week with friends who are celebrating his 50th (they live in Adelaide Aust and he is from Samso)

18th - head back to Copenhagen for a couple of days,

19th - Head to Rostock to get a head start to the week (and avoid the Monday morning traffic)

Mon 20th - To Karlovy Vary in the Czech Rep for 2 nights. Get in some spas and 'check' out the local area - looks amazing.

22nd - head to Nuremberg fro 3 nights. WW2 history and a friend's family brewery a little north are on the agenda.

24th - Back to the Welt - car is booked In at a local dealer for the 1200 mile service. Factory tour and Museum and do the Welt tour with the family.
Stay with friends in Munich (actually Eresing) for the weekend.
Sunday 26th - Head to Innsbruck to get a head start on next day.

27th - Head to Chioggia (Venice area) for 3 nights.
While there my son and I will do a day trip to the Ferrari and Lamborghini Museum and a little time on the Ferrari track in the M3 while the wife has a spa day and heads over to Venice on the ferry

30th - Up the Grossglockner and stay at a little place near Zell am See (can't think of the name - will add later - for a night's stay,
1st July (Friday) - Head to Liezen, Austria which will be our home base for the next 3 days while we visit the F1 at the Red Bull Ring. Check in and zoom off for Practise.

3rd July - F1!

4th July - Head out early to Salzburg - this day will be played by ear. We have the drop off by 6:30 PM at MUC and I really want to try and get in the salt mines and maybe the eagle's nest but thinking it will be too much- any thoughts?
Drop off and MUC Hilton

5th July - MUC to IAH all together.

11th - head back to Egypt for another 28 days - the work will hopefully make the wait easier Click image for larger version

About 6.5 hours. I'm hoping for some nice runs on the autobahn to cover some ground

Well, that's not 'that' bad I suppose. Are there any drop off locations up that way? I already have my route planned for my August ED, but perhaps for ED #5 in 3ish years I could hit up Denmark. How long is the ferry ride?

I guess you could drop at Bremerhaven - not sure how far that is. Will be a nice 6.5 hrs drive then a break and a 1.45 HR cruise then about 1.5 hours to Copengagen
The ferry ride is 1,45 hours as I recall

Well here's a couple of trip photos while I wait.
Left The Western Desert at 10:15 Am Sunday to Cairo then onto Frankfurt and a quick change to Munich then picked up by Sixt - unfortunately wasn't a 7 as promised - a X5. No problem. Hotel Sheraton 4 Points at by 11:15 and asleep by midnight. Crap nights sleep. Up at 6 ready and out the door to one of the pastry shops downstairs and a cappuccino and a pastry and the 5 minute walk to The Welt.
I forgot how this place blows me away. Has been 7 years since been here. Exterior is looking like it needs a bit of a clean and some maintenance through.
Anyway - premium lounge opens at 8 so having a tasse caffe latte and off for a look around
For your info. Weather is warm - temp is deceiving at 57 but very high humidity.

Well not too much in terms of scenery photos today but 1st impressions are good.
The torque is ridiculous. Pulls like a train. When you think you need to change down forget it - just put in the boot and away it goes.
Made it to Rostock with plenty of time to spare only to make a rookie mistake. Decided to get the car washed just 2 minutes away from what the nav thought was the ferry terminal. Suffice to say heads the terminal only to find it was 11 k in the other direction. Got there just after the ferry sailed so a 2 hour wait.
Many many open sections on this autobahn towards and particularly after Berlin. 4,500 is about 125 in 6th gear. Very comfortable at that speed for some good runs.
Watch out for the old ladies. They are the worst at pulling out to pass at 60 or 70 miles per hour in front of a car doing 125. I can vouch for the standard brakes on the M3!

Yes. I love them.

I did 630 miles yesterday. I had many opportunities to run it to max speed and just did one max run toward the top end of Germany and it ran to 165 indicated. The car felt great.

Nice. It is difficult to give an opinion on any seat when you have just sat in it for 9 hours - any seat leaves you a little stiff then
The only thing I don't like about them is I feel that the bolsters at front of the seat could be a little wider. Don't miss the lumbar at all. Also I wonder if the side bolsters could be wider. I have the side bolsters set out as far as possible and it is fine for me but not sure how a really big guy would go.
When I jump back in after a beak my immediate reaction is - wow these seats feel great.
My wife and son love the 'tickle holes'

An additional non-related comment. I absolutely love the heads up display. It is a game changer if you haven't had one before. I hardly look at the instrument cluster in highway driving. An additional bonus is the display of tracks on your music when you hit the right scroll. Like that feature.

I gotta tell you as well I love the bark of the exhaust and then when you drop her in cruise control and put it in efficient mode it takes away the drone on the highway.

And the wheels look absolutely amazing.

So yesterday we left Copenhagen and took a little ride to Roskilde. Lots of Danish Viking history and an amazing cathedral.
We then went to Kalundborg to get the ferry across to Samso where we are meeting some friends who are here from Australia (he grew up here)
Amazing out here on the island - just picturesque, quiet (until the M3 arrived) - they don't get many of these out here!
Had a little chance to give it a squirt in sport plus everything on some quiet twisties out here when I took my mate out for a spin. Very nice - may have clipped 6k for a second or 2 - well we are at 700 miles. Need more!

Great little island at Samso - very picturesque and serene. Nice food and great place for walks and relaxing.
I did manage to get a short video taking off with some exhaust note as well.

A couple of days on Samso island Denmark is coming to an end. It had been very relaxing but also the long days meaning late nights. Here's a coupe of photos of some scenery and some 'you don't get much more local than this ' entertainment
Off to Copenhagen for a couple of days tomorrow then the trip down through Germany starts.

Pretty decent size. It carries semi trailers and buses as well as many cars. The one from Rostock to Gedser is at least twice as big though.
