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.
For some reasons local birds recently decided the Nitrous Blue paint would look better with a bunch of shit on it. Also, a few million bugs decided to end their life by embedding themselves in the bumper.
So for the first time since taking ownership, I decided to wash it myself.
