Anyone experienced driving from one state to another in Europe? Do it needs to pass thru custom? Anything to take note or tips

May plan to drive from Germany to Austria. Heard that a road with no speed limit in Germany?

no need anything ... just drive

i suggest you to get rental car from Sixt where they allow cross border 

make sure your rental car can "cross border" ... not all models are allowed

Germany to Austria is like SG <> JB ...

everyday got people drive over especially to Innsbruck and Salzburg

Autobahn no limit is only for certain areas not the entire highway

The best part for Europe driving is the countryside B road which is most beautiful. Especially through small town. 

Not the no speed limit Autobahn.

autobahn and look out for the sign with 3 diagonal lines. this marks the start of no limit. for the end... it will then indicate the speed limit.

Depend on road traffic condition and weather condition, it will keep changing.

I have done Croatia cross over to Bosnia (Zagreb Airport - Split - Mostar - Sarajevo and back) using a rental car. Will need all the necessary documents at border. Check with rental company first if it allows cross-border driving. This drive was very beautiful.

I have done Frankfurt to Munich too but quite boring. Autobahn nothing great, really.

@denser have driven from Italy to France and back, as well as Italy to Switzerland and Liechtenstein and back. No issues and not all borders are manned if countries are part of the Schengen Agreement (i.e. u just pass through a tunnel and you see a sign and you are in the next country already). For Swiss and Austria you need a vignette sticker to drive on their highways, these can be purchased from the petrol station but you must be careful that you have the sticker before going on the highways. 
 

Usually the car rental company insurance covers driving in Western Europe countries, I know certain models of cars that are more expensive they may not allow you to drive to Eastern Europe. Can check with your rental company on the restrictions.

Agree. When I drove to KL, there are so many Singaporean cars tailgating me, egging to to increase my speed. I wonder what they are trying to prove.

Make sure you keep to slow lane (right lane) when cruising or immediately after overtaking.
