Trent Edge

Just Some More Edge Photos

Recommended Posts

Wife and I took the car on a short road trip for a week around Europe with the grand plan being down to Croatia and back via France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Czechia, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria and Luxembourg.

Anyway, just thought I'd share some pics of the car and you might be interested 🙂 Also for those interested, theres a map at the bottom of the rough route. Overall was a good trip and no problems (fortunately) and for a car that's almost 2 tons it doesn't do too bad. Had it cruising at 130mph for a while on the autobahn a few times but couldn't quite match the Mercs/Audis etc 😁 The sign recognition is much more suited for Europe and worked great. Different things in different countries as well as showing speed signs in black for some reason in Croatia, not sure what that was about if anybody knows? Anyhow, total of...

3089 miles
60 hours driving (Trip Computer)
Avg. 39.4mpg

AC and AC seats quite nice in the heat! Read a lot of bad reviews on the Sync2 but I quite like it and having used a Sync3 in a Lincoln Navigator on a road trip in the US, prefer the style of S2

Great pictures. I’d love to do a road trip like that. I drove to Lille then to Brugge last year but had to do it in a day. Still loved it. 

 

Spotted the beer but not the edge!

Thanks. Driving in mainland Europe seems to be quite a bit nicer than the UK, especially traffic wise in my experience.

Good eye but not looking hard enough! 😁

Is it half hidden behind a palm tree on the right of the picture?

Looks like there is another hidden Edge right in the middle of the picture, to the right of the white van mostly hidden by the tree. Or something of the same colour at least, lol.

I want a digital colour dash so badly... :sad: :laugh: 

How did you manage to keep it so clean on a road trip?  Does that colour just not show up the dirt?  Looks awesome tbh! :biggrin:

There's only my Edge in the pic and you're both saying the same area, so yeh 😁

Pictures don't do it justice, it's filthy! The colour does hide it quite well but all front surfaces are fully covered in bugs and front wheels are covered in brake dust. After around 1500 miles in Split, Croatia, I stopped in a self service jet wash and gave it a quick once over to get the bugs off so that helped a bit. Thanks!
