    cheers mate! theres a few things on your list i probably would of missed out so thanks for that! last time i went round europe i got as far as switzerland around 3000 miles in total, this time i want too go as far as Greece which will mean going to a few other nice countries along the way so should be quite a distance by the end of the trip, other than that i cant really tell you where else im going, same as last time really i just drove about finding cool stuff along the way and every now and again id put a nice town/city that I've always wanted to go to into the nav and head for it and see what happens along the way haha!

    so far i have ds2500 pads, R26.R discs & braided lines and a set of AD08r's to fit, will get brake fluid, service etc done at the same time as for now im just gonna run the tyres/brakes i have on the car so the new tyres/brakes are fresh for when i go.

    will deffo get a jack, spare tyre tools etc aswell as break down cover, just incase!

    wont be needing radios as i go solo, better that way, can go wherever and do whatever i want then :smile:

    I think its just a few little things to get done and then ill be off! will be taking a dash cam aswell to capture some footage !

    will keep you all updated and repost when im going!

    If you're going all that way, I'd get a 5L bottle of oil and coolant to stick in the car. You can never be too sure - especially as it will be warm!

    For the sake of £40-50, get the aircon regassed.

    Most importantly as you're going solo, exactly what Yiannis said, make sure any breakdown cover gives you adequate repatriation cover!!

    Even more importantly, have fun and take lots of pictures. Something I've been thinking about for a while but never got round to it just yet!

    Abit of a spontaneous road trip, me and a few mates finished work at around 11pm last night and i decided i wanted to go to scotland for a drive and they came along, took us 13 hours roughly all in and around 600 miles, was good to take the clio on a long drive before i go away to test it out properly, obviously theyre not built with motorway journeys or comfort in mind but i was quite happy with it overall, cant wait to get it over in europe in a few weeks now !

    Hi mate, yes that was me in the black R27 on the M60! Nice one on the wave and the hazards flash. I thought your plate looked familiar from seeing it on the forum! The car looked great!
