I was up it at the end of April last year for work and again at the end of June for a trip with the misses.TomNorris said:I think it's time to start thinking of dates. How are people looking for may / June / July? Any preference?
I haven't done it in the DC5, but I have in a Octavia VRS estate and rental Passat estate with a tiny eco engine. Not once did I think the road was too narrow or that badly surfaced (any worse than the rest of the UK). Apple Cross is single track but there are a million passing places. There's more to it than enjoying your car, the place is simply stunning.Hey folks,
For those of you that have done the NC500 (or parts of it) in your DC5's - are the roads of a decent quality in terms of surface/width etc?
I'm wanting to take my DC5 but I don't want to come back with it battered and bruised from potholes, stone-chips and scrapes on the bodywork. I've been reading up on it and hear that some roads, although classed as "A roads" are not great. It's a decent 10hr drive for me to get up to Scotland as it is, but want to enjoy the route and not have to drive like miss daisy everywhere!
