E-roads are signed in Azerbaijan as well. I've found a sign on the E60 near Alyat, near the intersection with E119, and both numbers are signed.

What about Kazakhstan? Do they sign the E-roads? E127 in Maikapshagai is the most eastern part of the E-road network. And it's even more east than Katmandu. Maikapshagai is a place in Kazakhstan close to the Chinese border. Is that road signed in Maikapshagai? That should be interesting.

I was following the E60 from Poti (Georgia) to the Kyrgyzstan/China border at Irkestam, so I don't touched Kazakhstan.
And a correction:

No, from a dirt road to a 16 lane motorway . The road of this photo is the E60 in Tajikistan.

Nobody uses E numbers in Germany.

Signs with E-numbers exists in Germany. But it's difficult to follow them if you don't know the national number of the road.

E-numbers are often only signed on distance signs in Germany, not on directional signage, although they added some E-numbers recently in some areas, but it's not yet widespread enough you can follow them without knowing the A-numbers.

Which are the countries that always use E-numbers on directional signage? Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Estonia...?

France is a 'nearly' - most of them are well signed, but others (eg E29) are patchy. It seems to be the ones that they don't care about aren't signed very well. Those on Autoroutes and Voie Express (and upgrade corridors, like the RCEA) are well signed.

An effort to put all things together:

E-roads as part of the national road numbering system: Denmark, Sweden, Norway.

E-roads replacing national numbers on motorways: Serbia, Belgium.

E-roads signed on most or all directional signs: Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania, FYR Macedonia, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Switzerland, Italy (sometimes only E-numbers are signed), France, Spain, Portugal, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Finland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Belarus, Russia, Ukraine,

E-roads signed in cases: Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, Ireland.

E-roads signed mainly on RCS signs: Germany (also signed on B-road signs).

E-roads unsigned: United Kingdom, Albania (not sure if the country has yet signed the UNECE agreement), Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.

No E-roads: Cyprus, Malta, Andorra, Gibraltar, Liechtenstein, Iceland, San Marino, Monaco, Vatican State, Faroe Islands.

Note: Kosovo (not yet recognized by all countries) also signs E-roads on all sings.

Some E-roads are very strange. Like the E008. How can this be an E-road?

Although this may require a lot of money in replacing thousands of signs, the system needs quite a lot of modifications in order to satisfy certain road conditions and also to follow logical and useful long-range and medium-range routes.

Yes, it should be somewhere between Murgab and the Chinese border. It is indicated that after Murgab, E008 continues and ends up at the Chinese border in Kulma, however all maps I have consulted do not show any road going all the way to the Chinese border in the area.

This raises a few questions (at least for me):

Do Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan treat E roads as the UK does ("we have chosen the routings but the E numbers won't be on visible on our signs") or as Albania does ("we haven't chosen routings yet, so there are no E numbers to put on signs")?

Is it that those 5 Asian countries have stated that they won't adopt or sign the E numbers, or is it merely an assumption that without finding any online pics of signed E roads in those countries, they're probably not signed.

Got pics of any Armenian highway signs with E numbers on them? It was neat to see the Georgian and Azerbaijan styles.

And is it still true that Albania has not fully agreed to the AGR agreement? They're left out of the system in the 2008 UNECE E road log and no official requests to include them are available on the relevant part of the UNECE site, but some maps (Google Maps, Collins Europe Road Atlas 2011) show E851, E852, E86, E762, and E853 in Albania. It's not clear if the mapmakers have simply guessed on fictitious routings or if they know that they have been determined.
