Hi Adam, thanks for the post.
Yeah, sounds attractive, but too damn far from the northwesternmost Spain...
I usually drop the horses on a strech of HGWY in Portugal, nice and smooth road, but haven't floored the beast yet though, getting used to the handling and feeling (only reached 260 in 5th, speedo readout, don't even know if it was for real...)
I moved to Spain from Denmark in 1995, and through the years I've got to know well the Deutsche AutoBahn...amazing how freely you could run 10-12 years ago...then all the Trabbies came on the road, and it was a pain in the neck. grrr
Doing 200+ kmh on the left lane and have a Trabant switching lanes at 95 kmh to pass a truck or bus wasn't fun.
Worst part is that I once was pulled over by the police (with lights and the lot) because a mad Trabby driver had reported me for honking and flashing headlights (and fist up, of course) while I was approaching at 240-250 kmh on my 535 e-34 (chipped) while he was high speed cruising (??) ...costed me 400 DM deposit to let me go back to Denmark, but guess what? I've got refunded 375 DM after trial (in abscence) because of no proof. Amazing country Germany it is!
As for chipping, I just found out that Superchip has a dealer in Madrid, that again has a garage upgrading ECU's via internet close to my location (120 km), they will upgrade my M5 and remove the v-max (so they state, I've written to Superchip UK to certify this) for 500$ (557 Euros).
Can't understand why Nowack's asking 2,034 Euros (1,810 $) for the same upgrade???
Will wait for Superchip's response before upgrade. Will keep you posted!
