We headed back to Stuttgart to return the car to the factory. We've logged about 900 miles in 7 days in Germany. From the scenic back roads to the autobahn (the best highway ever!), the car did not disappoint. It was the ultimate road trip.
Leisurely cruise back to Stuttgart following the flow traffic. Any slower and you'll have a Smart car on your tail
We first checked-in the hotel when

Gas fill-up in the earlier leg of the trip cost about $7 a gallon! Also, you pump first and then pay. I went inside to hand over my card so I can pump but I was told to pump first. What a concept!

2009 tourist delivery - Konstanz 5/28/09
Left Baden Baden for Konstanz around noon. The route I selected should take us through the scenic routes, avoiding the Autobahn. We hit the Schwarzwaldhochstrasse (Black Forest High Road) for some spirited twisties driving as well as the magnificent views. Unfortunately, it was really foggy and driving throught it sometimes really nerve-racking. It was mid-day but visibility in some areas was very limited. In some parts, it was just barely
