In Nürburg at the moment, it's been snowing today but still managed to get a couple of laps in.

This is my 4th visit (the first with the M5, only bought it 2 weeks ago).

Just had an inspection 1 and fluid change (gearbox oil, coolant diff oil and brake fluid) last week and also new rear tyres and front pads so it should be in good health for it!

The car is absolutely amazing :)

Edit: Oh, and this is my first post, so Hi!!

welcome!

ive got a sneaky feeling your car has (probably) the lowest mileage in the country ...

im yet to visit the 'ring but am hoping to make it up there in may. have you been on guided trips or just organising things on your own?

the reason i ask is that ive just started putting my trip together and trying to figure out the best way to go about it ..

thanks

Organised myself with a few friends, prefer the flexibility of doing it that way.

The first time we took the ferry as it was cheap, but have since decided we prefer to pay a bit more for the speed and convenience of the channel tunnel. It's about a 4 hour drive from the Chunnel terminal to Nürburg, if you have satnav you can't go too wrong.

Hotel accommodation locally is mainly independent type places, but they are generally cheap and functional.

We stay in the Hotel Am Tiergarten which is less than a mile from the track entrance and is located next to the renowned Pistenklause restaurant. Prices are pretty good if you are sharing a room between a couple of people and include breakfast and free wifi.

Peter you may have the coolest first post ever on the forum! Congratulations, welcome, and best of luck with the new beast. I've had mine for 6+ years now and every day is still a treat. Been to the 'ring once myself, but unfortunately just as a visitor, not as a driver. I did get to see the white M5 ring taxi back in 2003 though, so that was pretty cool, along with the Z8 they had hanging on the wall in the museum.
