    3500km of Scottish salt, grime and... debris flying off a collision in the opposite direction. 🤔

     

    Sh.....t !!! Smiley  So lucky in your unluck .  Getting flying debris from the other side Smiley  Luckily they did not hit your windscreen  and the car can still drive ............... What that on the highway ?

    Indeed it was on the highway, I was traveling on the overtaking lane at +/- 160km/h when two cars traveling in the opposite lane collided and hit the divider. In the UK the divider is often not more than steel poles with a thick metal wire in between so everything just flew through/over. Lucky indeed, can't help thinking if something like that happens to a motorcycle, it's over and out.

    crazy how things can go Smiley

    How was the on-piste? Were you at Verbier?

    On piste in Verbier is very good . Off piste now not so good, as the snow is very light due to the very cold temperatures and you hit the many stones . 

    I ski more in the '' Porte du Soleil '' domain .  About 40 km from Verbier .  Half in France , half in Switzerland . There the off piste is better ,, but still, it will need more snow as all the nice slopes, and forests, have now been used .... and the off piste starts to look like not off piste anymore Smiley

    OMG you are lucky! That is some serious damage that could have been much worse. Hope you can fix the Alpina quickly Smiley

    You mean just like my Q7 and RC's R8 ? Smiley

    Smiley Smiley

    Wanted to go up the slope but they wouldn't let me. Smiley (nah, just kidding)

    Did some donut on that parking lot for a small boy who was too shy to take a ride with me and ended up with a big show (forgot to turn off ESP, had to rev the engine too high and all the people outside doing apres ski got a taste of the V10 sound...according to some of my friends who were preparing to do another downhill run). Wasn't my intention though, just wanted to make a little boy happy. Smiley Smiley

    Actually, never in my neighborhood or on public roads when other cars are around. Smiley

    Also, never in front of my regular friends who are not into driving and especially my wife's female friends. I did that only for that little boy, seriously but since the ESP was on, I had to apply more throttle and I didn't want to do more than one donut, so they wouldn't think I am showing off. Unfortunately, that showing off part kind of looked and sounded more spectacular from the outside and I haven't realized it. I know you don't believe me but I never do stuff like that in public for a reason.

    Just before the car wash - just too much salt on the roads...
    Feels good to drive those 911s again...so much fun and the PSE on the 3.6 (bypassed) is surprisingly good :-)
