Piling on the miles

on Fri Feb 24, 2017 7:38 am

I got the car (Subaru Impreza) in July 2016 and it's now got 10,000 km's on it. I'm doing really no more mileage than I was doing in the Agila.

Best point - Air conditioning a must have in summer.
Worst point - Not much acceleration - it has a good transmission clutch though, so can give it the beans in gear.
4 wheel drive - don't know if it was worth it or not. Sure I feel safe going a bit off the side of the road etc. Wheels never spin. Was driving on what looked like icy roads - white from freezing fog stuff - minus 10. I felt no safer than I did in the Agila.

I got George in May 16, put her on the road July 16 with 86,621 miles she just turned 91,000 miles today.

I feel safe enough, but it's more the size and height.

I made a short video of driving in snow at 70mph. Felt very safe, well you would doing warp speed in the Millenium Falcon Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven

That's not bad for someone who is injured. I can imagine your using more than twice the petrol I am too.

That mileage, your driving makes it a very expensive ornament.

You need a Tesla 3 when they come out - either that or a hair tint and a Prius!

BMW has just broken the 10k miles barrier .....

Time to trade it in - what next ??**

On other news .... the 911 was MOT'd this week - passed fine (after some washer fluid was added) .... and noted in the last 12 months it's only done 1500 miles ....




** just kidding ...
