    Vinay, here are some prices:

    This is Stenaline (http://www.stenaline.com), Harwich -&gt; Hook of Holland (3 hours 40 mins):

    One car, two people: £179 (family special return)
    Two cars, two people: £350 (two separate returns)

    overnight ferry:

    One car, two people: £179 (family special return)
    Two cars, two people: £232 (two separate returns)

    mandatory cabin: £58 (inside - no view! £68 for port-holed cabin <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'> ) Comes with buffet style breakfast included in price.

    &quot;Free Full English Breakfast | Free Evening Meal | Comfortable Lounge Area | Onboard Shopping | Cinema&quot;

    Stena Hollandica depart 23.15 (latest check-in: 22.15) disembark 07.30 - 08.00

    That sounds like a winner to me <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>

    Leave work as early as possible, hit the road to your place. &nbsp;Either we go in separate cars or just one and hammer over to Harwich asap for the 22:15 check-in then cruise over to NL in style overnight <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>

    how low is this &quot;family&quot; car on the icon?

    ok, well, if I leave here at lunchtime (1:30pm?) on the 28th, I get to your place in 4 hours:

    Total Estimated Time: 3 hours, 58 minutes
    Total Distance: 213.6 miles

    It's now 5:30pm

    Then we hit the road to the coast:

    Total Estimated Time: 2 hours, 32 minutes
    Total Distance: 98.4 miles

    9pm arrival at the docks, allowing an 1 hour and 15 mins for getting lost or roadworks etc.

    Everything's worked out beautifully. <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>

    EDIT: if we're going in two cars we should buy walkie-talkies for the NL/DE side of things because mobile to mobile in another country is ££££. &nbsp;I have a CB radio designed for car use in the loft so I'm ok, what about you? <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>

    Hey, looking forward to see both of you in NL this time instead of in the UK!
    Let me know when exactly to expect you and we will sort further details out.

    The German MB gtg already has over 100 W201s signed up, 20 W202/W203s, 18 W124s ans some other MB models...seems like the W201 is doing well in Germany...

    greetingz,

    Hopefully the passport processing place won't take the usual 3 months to turn yours around...

    They sell French and Italian ones, couldn't find any German or Dutch ones though.  The walkie talkie idea still stands, just seen a pair of BeeTee ones for sale - they look quite cool and have a range of 2 miles <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'>
