    Are you landing in Munich or Frankfurt?
    Yeah your pictures convinced me to squeeze it in. We're flying into Munich and doing a whirlwind tour:

    Charlotte > Munich overnight
    Salzburg for 2 nights
    Innsbruck for 2 nights
    St Moritz for 1 night
    Glacier Express across Switzerland
    Stuttgart for 2 nights to stay with friends and reset
    Strasbourg for 2 nights
    Paris for 3 nights as our late honeymoon
    Stuttgart for 2 more nights for said friends' wedding
    Munich for 1 hungover night
    back to Charlotte and back to work

    Next time we'll bring Spenser and meet you at the Nurburgring!

    Indeed it does. Hoping to do more of these tours with the car through Europe.

    Pretty much everyone in Germany stores their cars during winter so summer is when the car activities come to life. Should be a nice summer.

    Dude, that's a tight schedule, but I'm glad you squeezed in Strasbourg. You'll have a proper Eurotrip.

    If you had more time, we could've met somewhere, we also have friends in Stuttgart that we visit often, but I'll be waiting for you guys next time!

    Finally got around to finish cleaning the engine bay.

    It went from this...



    To this.



    And this...



    To dis.









    I previously mentioned my cleaning method of using Liqui Moly engine compartment cleaner, a German version of Windex, water spray bottle and couple of brushes - no pressure washing. And 303 aerospace protectant to finish off the plastic. Pretty happy how it turned out.

    Thank you, fellas! I'm loving the clean engine bay too.

    No updates, just the weather was awesome this weekend so I washed and waxed the M5 and took it for a nice drive. TiAg looks good in the sun.

    I think it's safe to say that Eisenmann exhaust is fully broken in by now.

    It's my favorite mod on the car. Hitting the gas pedal and hearing glorious V8 note makes everything better.

    The video doesn't do it justice, but here's a little taste.

    That simply sounds delicious. Like the devil describing osso bucco to me.
