Awesome run.Nigh on 400 miles since Saturday and up to 5,500 RPM with one blip to 6,500 passing a Hyundai Coupe.




Very well received wherever I've gone. Kids, chicks and geezers all double take and point.

I'm sure it won't last long, but while they're still 1. rare and 2. advertised on telly it's a kewl honeymoon period.

Yep. Just south of Brecon, maybe 10-20 miles-ish.

If you keep doing that your fuel consumption is going to be as bad as mine!

Just checked; averaging 34 mpg over 380 miles. Superb.
Clearly, once it's run in that may reduce but considering I'm not exactly dawdling along that is impressive.

A54 to Congleton,

Even the boss is questioning me.....but it's thesensiblechoice.....but I want it now.....but I'd be spending close to £900 on insurance in total.....now...no....now.....noooooooooooo

Indeed! In fact funnily enough I did my test drive from Macc and went up the A537 and down the A54 to Bosley. A route I know very well.
