Some of you may remember that i'm mainly a <5mile driver with the odd blast at weekends which is returning an average of 29mpg for the 1st 1K Miles
Today I did my 1st >150mile drive in the TI so I thought i pop a few observations down :-
Didn't miss a beat all journey
No rattles or cabin noise throughout (well except my naughty son who cried most of the journey)
Handling - just takes every corner effortlessly
HiFI - really is a great piece of kit with the MP3 player
Looks - driving through Whitby certainly got plenty of attention
Overtaking was in the main good BUT you must have the revs up....6th is totally dead
Economy - still only 40.6 for the 150mile trip which is pants for mainly 50-70mph crusing as the traffic was surprisingly light....I was expecting at least 45.
Suspension - started to feel the poorer roads a bit towards the end as the set up quite firm
Pickup in 6th - absolutely lifeless, I have to concede the 1.9 with a full load could do with a tas more poke but for most drivers i'm sure it's more than adequate.
All in all a great day out at the seaside made all the more enjoyable with such a super car to get there and back in.
