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.
Same here. Need to get summer tires soon. No doubt that Michelin PS4S is one of the best but it is expensive. I might get the Conti ExtremeContact Sport at 4wheelonline. I've heard that this tire is good in the dry and wet. Also, it is significantly cheaper than Michelin.
