Go for it! Just plan for the worst and hope for the best.  Mine didn't miss a beat the whole journey.  There isn't mechanically much to go wrong on an aircooled.  Drive slowly, keep an eye on the oil, have breakdown cover.

yeah, its the breakdown cover that's the problem.  French cover mostly covers getting you to a local garage and then giving you a loan car for a week so breaking down in Poland wont be much fun.

i'll make sure I've got a suitcase full of spare parts with me though  :)

Well done. I just purchased a 126 in Wroclaw and was contemplating driving it back to the UK.
As you mentioned everyone advised not to and having thought about it i ended up getting it sent over here. Picking it up tonight  ;D

" Hi Peter do you remember how much it was to ship over. thanks
