    They really managed to do it quite fast and gave me a big discount on the work. So I'm ok with how they dealt with it.
    Good news then

    Yup.
    Meanwhile we are planning another big trip with the Subaru: from Warsaw via Bremen and North-Netherlands to Enschede (project meeting), then on to Belgium (family visit) and then back via Dusseldorf (another project meeting) to Warsaw...

    Funny, I've lived in the Netherlands all my life but I think this means you get to go to Enschede before I ever do (and it's not a big town but not an out-in-the-woods village either). How many KM is that trip in total?

    Haven't fully checked yet, but well over 3000 km. The longest section will be around 1000 km, but with 2 drivers and full highway driving it is well doable.
