Hi, zeevfl -
I see that you've added an extra night in both Sevilla and Granada. I think you'll find a great deal of interest in both locations.

I personally would opt out of Gibraltar and have even more time in Sevilla or somewhere else.

I think you have too much Ronda and not enough Sevilla, I will avoid Gibraltar. In the way from Tarifa to Gibraltar I will suggest to stay in one of the villages, like Conil, or Vejer instead of Cadiz.
The Granada part involves a lot of mountain driving, and sun sets early in october so just consider this fact when planning your day trips.

This is a much bigger plan but I still agree about dropping Gibraltar and cut the time for Ronda.

Take a look at the Michelin book and see which places are of most interest for your trip. You mentioned earlier that you're in Judaisim (sp??) so maybe a bit more time in Sevilla be worthwhile. The Barrio Santa Cruz is the old jewish section in Sevilla. I'm not exactly to the judaisim in Sevilla but it's worth looking deeper.

Cadiz as a lodging place is expensive. The poster is correct about Conil or Vejer, instead of Cadiz.

All in all you've refined your plans.
