    612, got it shipped to/from Milan for less than fuel plus tolls plus ferry/Eurostar.....and avoided the boring bit. Last run for the car before it goes in a trade.

    Spent a couple of days in Chamonix ice climbing. Such a variety of climbing around there it's not funny and the hotels were surprisingly cheap. Very cool place, will be going back for more before year end.

    Probably this local freak........who followed me down a pass and took off like a stabbed rat around a blind bend. Not much competition between a 612 and Porker on the windy stuff.

    Not really, lovely car, does everything it says on the tin, ideal for that type of trip............but..........the 599 does is a little better. No back seats in a 599, but I've got no kids so it makes sense.

    I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

    You won't get better climbing than around Mt. Blanc.......
  13. Also better looking than the 612, sorted the headlights out on the 599. There's a matt black one round my way and that looks gash.

    Agree on the too. I'm looking at Grigio Silverstone.......fancy name for gunmetal grey.
  15. Found this very nice road the week before last - the D912 south of Grenoble. I had to cut the vid short because I nearly totalled the car on video and my wife's swearing would have made a sailor blush:
