Took the car on a 2000+ km trip with the family last week.

From Montreal, first a stop in Quebec City, then a 800 km drive to Percé, and on the way back a 1003 km drive in one day back to Montreal




Passed a few milestones (the first one was a week before, in another trip to Quebec City








Dirty RS before leaving on the last morning:




Car is now super dirty, I need to find some times to wash it properly.




Throughout the trip I managed an average fuel consumption of 8.9l/100 km, with a best average over a tank of 8.1 (including a best displayed average of 7.8 before it crept back up to 8.1).



I love the seats in normal use, but on road trips, I get cramps in the legs after roughly 90 to 120 minutes. We managed to fit the whole family (2 adults, 2 kids) and our luggage for the week. It was tight, but still Ok.

The power on tap was nice to have for some of the overtakes I needed to do on some of these roads, and there was even a few nice parts with curves, climbs and decent where I got to enjoy the handling of the car.

Still in love with it :D

And yesterday drove almost 3h north to go spend the day at the cottage my brother in law rented.



Took that potato shot with the shed, not the cottage :p



A 524 km day with an displayed average fuel economy of 9.0 l/100km.

Saw an almost identical Nitrous Blue RS (but pre-2018) in traffic on the way back :)
