First proper trip in my A4, 900km over the weekend, to a car meet in Taupo. The 3.2 quattro is a great road trip car. Easy power delivery, it feels composed and solid, comfortable, great stereo. Love it. And I saw an average of 8.8l/100km on the trip there, which is pretty good I think.

Yeap it's definitely made for touring. 8.8l/100km is about the average I've found if I do a bit of decent overtaking etc.
I do quite a few trips from the Manawatu to Wellington and usually get about 7l/100km (using 98 fuel in mine).

I think I'm going to have to give in and wash it tomorrow. It's covered in a layer of yellow pollen, and the wheels are embarrassingly dirty.

In other news, it's drinking a bit of oil - about half a litre per 1000km.

Must be the case as they go up in Kmís?

Iíve had to top up my GTI for the first time ever. Maybe time for a different grade of oil?

Lent Growly Bear to a mate, and there was an incident. Not his fault, someone reversed out of a park without looking.
Waiting on insurance now.





JDM style repair.

Yeah he was pulling out of a car park entrance onto the road and this guy reversed fast out of the space. No time to brake.

Real shame if it is. Mechanically it's great, leather interior mint, has great stereo with factory sub, etc.

But add up new bonnet, wing, lights, bumper, grille, washer bottle, arch liner and other clips and stuff. Crash bar is slightly bent at the end, horns a bit mangled. But no rad leaks or anything like that.

In the bin because they can't make it all perfect and shiny again.  Take the pay out, see if you can buy it back, take  hammer to it and fit a new light. Bingo.
The end is nigh, but the end of what is the question?

I've already swapped back to the stock wheels just in case.

$5800 repair quote assuming washer bottle is good and there's no hidden damage.
