Thumbs up Question to Norway and Sweden guys: road trip planning

Hello fellow european bimmer drivers.

Iíve got a question to you guys from Norway and Sweden. I would like to make a road trip in the end of may from Stockholm to Bergen or somewhere on that coast. Iím looking for advice on how can I plan the trip better, and what things I should take with me.

For example, do I need to buy snow chains? Or I will be fine with my summer performance tyres? Are the roads in general OK to drive on in mountains where I suppose snow always is? What route would you recommend? I am going to go from Stockholm and from then on itís just driving. Is it better to by diesel in Sweden and take a canister of diesel as well when going through the mountains?

All advice is welcome, even where to start. I Have some time still and would like to get prepared. Iím going to Stockholm by ferry from Estonia.

Hi!
Well, going from Stockholm and throug our country in may - you wont be needing any snowchains. We have about +15 - +20 degrees here then - so that wont be any problems
Try to buy as much diesel back in Estonia as you can - because here in Sweden we got "Mk1" marked diesel - and that means that its low enegry power diesel... That really sucks.

Welcome
No need for snow chains in late may.
I guess you will go from Stockholm to Oslo to Bergen.

You can do this route, the main route on E16.

Or this, the shortest route.

Anderstorp is without any doubt the best racetrack in Scandinavia, but unfortunately it doesn't look like it will host the STCC this season. Besides Anderstorp I have visited Mantorp Park in the LinkŲping area and Ring Knutstorp in SkŚne - they are both great tracks!
