THANKS! We are cruising, being driven, up the A9 in a A8 on our way to Ingolstadt! A little road construction and rain. Delivery photos later today.

Had a great day at the Audi Forum yesterday, picked up the wives Q5 and drove over to Lindau on the Bodensee. Stretched out the TDI on the autobahn route a couple of easy (no down shifts) runs up to 120 mph. Hard to believe it was only spinning over at approximately 2700 RPM. Solid as a rock and nice and quiet. We really get some funny looks from the locals with the cycle plates on the car. More to follow as we continue the journey.

Would love to hear your thoughts about Lindau. We are doing Euro delivery of our A7 in August and are thinking of driving to Lindau on the first day.

Thanks!

We did stay in Lindau, but not on the island. We stayed at Hotel Bad Schachen, which is directly on the Bodensee shoreline, maybe 1 mile west of the island. It is a grand old hotel (hosts annual Nobel committee conferences), has a great breakfast plan, and a very nice indoor pool and sauna/spa facilities. We've never stayed on the Lindau island so I can't really compare. However, I would certainly stay at Bad Schachen again and make it a two day stay for the food, pool/spa facilities, and beautiful grounds. It is an easy 2-5 hr drive from Ingolstadt depending on your route, we did some slow country driving mixed with autobahn for about a 4 hr trip.

Our last day with the Q5 tomorrow, Thur, turning in at our 4 pm schedule time. Driving from Rothenburg o.d. T. to Munich and then give the car a wash/wax and turn it over. All in all a great driving trip. The spa days in Badenweiller were fantastic. Got to drive my wife's cousin's M3 in the Eifel. Stopped by the Grune Holle during the 4 hr German endurance race so no laps for the Q5. Over to Cochem for an afternoon. Stopped outside of Frankfurt to visit some relatives on our way over to Rothenburg for 3 days of sun and fun exploring the old city. Cheers! Trip write up & photos to follow after our return to the states.
