Spring is in the air!

on Thu May 03, 2018 9:29 pm
After a rather stressful day, I was driving home at about 5-30 - not usually much fun with surrounding traffic, cold temperatures, rain, etc, but this evening it was lovely - so much so that I was able to put the car in Sport AND Dynamic mode - using the flappy paddles. Over the winter months it's very easy to forget that the Jag is a fairly brisk car; 2nd gear out of the bends, with a tiny extension of the right toe to go from 30-60 really rather swiftly. I love my commute. Really looking forward to going to work tomorrow!

PS the exhaust makes all the right noises too.

Is this you in a happy place with the Jag now or are you still tempted by the Super Sport?

The nice weather does encourage the rigjt foot to go down a bit harder.

It's also nice to rediscover that air-con blows cool as well as hot.

I had freaking magic April, it was like summer every day for the last 2 weeks. It's got colder now. But it's really not bad.

Magic air conditioning in this car too.

Magic year on the whole I hope.

I'll have to post the map. But it's been according to some mad man (me) 10 miles a day, 3 times this week.

It's actually 10 km run, but it's up and down 400 metres. According to Swiss it's worth 4 km. It's another 1 km walk there and back to my car.

10 + 4 + 1 + 1 = 1.6. Erm 10 miles.
