Thumbs up Wheels Mag territory drive

Front Cover latest Wheels
"TERRITORY Believe the Hype!"

Altho I havent read the full review it seems like they are raving too!
Seems Gormans first month and he has a Home Run to begin with (coz h comes from baseball land) well maybe its "walk" coz Geoff actually did this one. Nup, Geoff's an Aussie, so he hit it for six! - I might drop the sports analogies now

Suffice to say, READ THE LATEST WHEELS!.. show it to everyone you know.

Territory, its AMAZING.

Re: Wheels Mag territory drive

three quarters of all cars on the road would use 20l/100 in a test situation, so this wouldnt stop me buying one.

Same here....they all say they averaged between 15-20 litres...some even saying the lowest they could physically get was 15. To see Wheels gettin 13.7 is a great sign when compared to what the others think.

Re: Wheels Mag territory drive

really depends on how many km the car has done...when i first got my ba i was averaging around 14 - 15...now after 1.5 years (30000km) i am averaging 12.5 and i am a lead foot.
