            Anon, rental cars don't need to be shipped, the whole purpose of them is to be available on the spot. You drop off the plane and get yourself a car then drive then leave it somewhere (doesn't even have to be the same place, but that usually costs a bit extra). Are you moronic?

            Ofc you can rent a car wherever you are traveling to but that is apparently bland.

            Bringing your own car is expensive and takes time.

            >only way to get a bmw is to ship it from the US
            You could buy a bmw in germany for example but you cant register it because you need to be at least a resident in this place to register it. Export plates are time limited (30 days).

    Man I planned a road trip that consisted of circling the black sea starting from Turkey and ending up in Greece but the the uke war broke out and the trip was shelved indefinitely. What car should I use for such a trip if the war ends? I was thinking a butchanka would be cool and it could double as accommodations if needed. Many Germans mod them into essentially RVs.

      Would be complicated in terms of insurance. If you rent a car best to stay within EU. Otherwise you need different cars for different countries.

            Have you ever wondered why? They can get UAZs and Ladas for cheap, the parts for them are plentiful and easy to find in the Motherland, but for some reason they buy foreign-made cars and trucks as soon as they can afford it.
            >but why the heat
            Because it could get pretty hot during the south part of your trip in Turkey. Prepping for possible snow is way easier than for mountainous terrain combined with hot weather. Around the Black Sea the snow is going be sporadic anyway.

            It's pretty obvious if you ever visit a holiday spot were both slavs and germans congregate. Germans are really into RVs and camping .Slavs on the other hand prefer to stay in some 4-5 star hotel even if they can hardly afford it. It's a culture thing.
            >but for some reason they buy foreign-made cars and trucks as soon as they can afford it.
            Again that is more of culture thing from countries that were historically poor. Whenever said poorgays come across even a little bit of extra cash they prefer to go in debt in order to show off with some status symbol car. That is why their foreign made cars of choice are more often than not german luxury brands and not Corollas and Civics.
            Germans(the natives that is) who, lack such inferiority complexes may have an expensive car at home but they will prefer to go on a trip with their 20yo RV, sleep in tents and order a salad and tap water.

            >I am not planning to cross North Africa

            Not OP but, touché.

            >but why the heat? I am not planning to cross North Africa
            Southern Europe can get pretty damn hot these days. Like, hot enough that unhealthy people start dying from the heat in their own homes.
            Hell, it was almost 30 C / 86 F in Finland a few days ago. You don't want to ride around without good AC.
            Many of those old Soviet tin cans also tend to overheat on flat roads just trying to keep up with regular traffic. In mild weather. Their engines might have been decent in the 1950s (in a vehicle half the weight).

            >Hell, it was almost 30 C / 86 F in Finland
            Was in Athens Greece a few days back. It was hot but not 30C hot. Sporadic heat waves are normal. What is not normal is for a car manufactured in the last 20 years being unable to handle them. I think the heat problem is kind of overblown.

            Don't decent RVs cost way more than hotels? So if someone can hardly afford the latter they definitely can't afford even renting the former.
            >It's a culture thing.
            Know a number of Russians and Ukrainians who's into offroading and camping, so no. See

            , he's exaggerating a bit, but is right in general.
            >Whenever said poorgays come across even a little bit of extra cash they prefer to go in debt in order to show off with some status symbol car.
            Lol, most imported cars were bought for cash even in the 1990s. Getting in debt is an American thing because credit cards and the concept of borrowing money from the bank for something other than real estate have a much longer history there.
            >That is why their foreign made cars of choice are more often than not german luxury brands and not Corollas and Civics.

            So you're trying to say that wanting a comfy picnic or a nice barbecue is a manifestation of an inferiority complex, as is driving a nicer car instead of leaving it at home? Adding to that, maintaining a 20 year old RV in a country with humid or even snowy winter costs a lot of money or time or both, so I suspect you're probably have a very little idea of the things you have opinions about.

            So exceptions exists so the rule is wrong? In what kind of contrarian state of mind must one be to take my assertion on german and slavs preferences for vacationing to be absolute?
            >Getting in debt is an American thing
            Sure if you are stuck in the 80s. If you believe that current year slavs and europeons don't go in debt in order to spent beyond their means you are clearly uninformed. It has subsided a little bit in the last years, first because of the 08 crisis and then because of the mild-respiratory-virus crisis but it is still a thing. Hell it's probably making a comeback.
            >So you're trying to say that wanting a comfy picnic or a nice barbecue is a manifestation of an inferiority complex,, as is driving a nicer car instead of leaving it at home?
            No. Clearly never even implied that. Check your reading comprehension skills.
            >Adding to that, maintaining a 20 year old RV costs a lot of money.
            Yes?
            Is you brain translating my claim that germans don't prefer flashy vacationing as the germans are poor? Man you must be a slav. They are cheap sure but definitely not poor. Just the cost of the petrol to get their buchanka turned RV from germany to spain is probably more than the BMW riding bulgarian roadtriping in greece will spent for his entire stay.

            Firstly, you have to prove "the rule" exists, then something can be proven to be an exception, not the other way round.
            >my claim that germans don't prefer flashy vacationing
            Voluntarily driving Soviet vehicles for prolonged periods of time or over long distances and ordering salads and tap water is far from "not preferring flashy vacationing", it's subjecting yourself to some mild form of suffering. Some people are into it, but it's definitely not the norm, and I see no reason to label people who don't practice that as having some sort of psych problems. That's what I'm trying to tell you.

            Then how this Bulgarian having a nice time in a nice car has some psychological complex and people spending more time and more money to drive a less nice car do not? That's some trickery my obviously subpar brain can't understand.

            I was exaggerating in order to make a point. No need to get your panties in a twist.
            Plus the fact that germans don't suffer from economical and status inferiority complexes like most of the slavs do doesn't mean they are not fricked in the head in their own special way. Personally I would take the company of slav posers over random germans any day of the week.

            See, you posted something that can be interpreted as
            >ethnicity A and B go on a holiday together
            >A prefer RVs
            >B prefer nice hotels (cheaper than RVs), but sometimes they can hardly afford even them
            >therefore, it's a cultural thing for ethnicities A and B
            But if we look at the costs, we'll see that not only As are willing to spend more money, but Bs might (and sometimes definitely) not have enough money for the comparison at all. You can't attribute to culture things that have simpler explanation.
            >It's my first hand anecdotal experience.
            And I shared mine.
            >That is good enough for a rule on 4chins.
            Yeah, so is mine.
            >I was exaggerating in order to make a point.
            It's a shaky point if you can't make it without exaggerating, and the particular exaggeration says a lot about you.
            >Plus the fact that germans don't suffer from economical and status inferiority complexes
            But they do? There's that widely-known set of psych problems about losing two world wars and being humiliated and restricted in a lot of things up to this day, then the fact the East Germans were under the Soviets on top of that for several generations. I'm not some certified shrink, but inferiority is the word that definitely comes to mind. I believe the Ossies suffered economically as well.
            >doesn't mean they are not fricked in the head in their own special way.
            Didn't mean to say the Slavs aren't fricked in the head in their own special way, only that some of their vehicle choices you mentioned are adequate.
            >slav posers
            I'd say a poseur is a word that can be applied to someone fricking ordering tap water at a restaurant or burning a lot of money trying to make a reliable and comfortable vehicle out of a Soviet UAZ especially if its severe offroading capabilities are not needed and there's access to a lot of other more appropriate vehicles.

            Culture is pretty fricking simple as far general behavior explanations go.
            >exaggeration
            Its a pretty common tactic in non formal discourse to exaggerate in order to make a point and/or create interest. It really says nothing about me. The fact that you got so butthurt over nothing is very funny though.
            OK slavboy I get. I never claimed that you BMWs aren't an adequate road tripping vehicle. I only thought that considering a buchanka for a road trip is more of a German than a Slav thing and thus I don't consider it "slavbooism".
            If I wanted to play pretend being a Slav I would drive an early aughts BMW not a Vesta.

    My last Euro road trip was in a 5 series diesel.
    Begin in Paris, Bordeax, down to Pau, through the Pyrenees with a wrong turn ending up at the Spanish border. Make way to Toulouse, Carcassonne (highly recommended) St Tropez, Nice, then Monoco. Then back north through Lyon, Dijon and stayed in Mulhouse where you can visit a world class Bugatti museum. Day trip to Bern from there. Time of my life, would do again...
    -I remember visiting grandparents living in Belgium, grand dad had BMW 2002. We all fell in love with these wonderful little cars. Nothing like blasting through the black forest in a BMW wide open. Truly a dream.
