Germany is large, mostly forested and surprisingly busy. Those are the chief observations. And the ride isn't flawless. Personally, I don't think the run-flat tyres help, allowing an occasional sharp judder to penetrate. That's about it though, otherwise it's calm, unruffled, dignified progress. Right hand at quarter past, left resting on thigh, fingers there just in case. Feet are still loving the experience, music is accompanying and the seats are just dandy. I think I might like the seat base to be a little longer, but this isn't one of those cars that has 28-way adjustable seats, ones that you fiddle with for hours and never quite get comfortable in. I think we have eight directions here. That's plenty. No massage, but that's not needed either if the basic seat is spot-on.
