8mm is a small shank. You shoud definitely look for a larger shank model. There are many bits you may want in the future that are not available in the small shank. I believe you will need to find something with a 12mm (half inch US size) chuck (collet). You can get a smaller collet for a 6-8 mm sized bit shank to fit the larger model if you wish, but the smaller shank capacity will limit what you can do with the router. I am not familiar with Bosch model numbers in the Eurozone, so I can't recommend a specific model number, but you should be able to find a 12mm model easily, and I suggest you stick with Bosch. The advice on frequent cleaning of the bit is good. Perhaps a Euro member can suggest the specific model. You won't regret having a larger collet router, but you are almost certain to regret getting the one with the smaller shank size.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
