S4 road trip

Postby Mandeep D » Sun Apr 04, 2010 6:31 pm

Just got back from a 1000km trip. Overall consumption on one tank: 9.343 l/100km. The trip computer said 7.8, which had me really excited, but it must be fooled by the chip, etc. It ran like a champ; temps held perfectly steady, and right where they should be. Driveability is great, you really don't have to downshift to pass ;)

It's getting there...... Motor / trans / snub mounts will make for a better driving experience!

Dave, I was wondering if you could refresh my memory and explain again, what exactly is wrong with your camera? :D

It's being camera shy until the fenders & trunk are painted. Only then will the LM's be bestowed upon it as worthy rolling stock. Then the spacers / lowering dial-in will take place, then I will begin the whoring process :D

Did I mention I got a whole set of spacers & bolts with the package?
