Well, today I decided to go for a long(ish) drive to New Norcia. This is about a 2.5 hour round trip from my place and I chose it because it's not just a boring long piece of road, but twisty and turning, while still at 110 km/h.
So, how'd I go? Well, the first thing I did after getting out of the city and up to Bullsbrook was to turn the stereo off
That Turbo sound is soooo nice! This car accelerates so quickly it's bloody scarey. Overtaking lanes and Road Trains (double-B's, I think they are) were a piece of cake. Without saying too much, it was extremely easy for the speed alert to go off
So, what did I think? I'm still getting used to the Sports wheel. I really, really prefer the Momo wheel I had in the AUII XR6, I so wish I could have it back! But, I suppose I'll get used to it.
No whistling noises from the windscreen at all, and on most parts of the road almost all I could hear was the wind rushing past and the whine of the turbo. Gotta love that.
Averaged 11.5 l/100km and 90 km/h during the entire trip. An interesting observation was that instantaneous fuel consumption went as low as 0.6 l/100km when coasting down a long hill with Cruise on at 90 km/h. Wish it was that low all the time!
Now I just have to wash it to get all the bugs off!
