    S3 - drive to Dartmoor

    This weekend's weather was the perfect backdrop to an epic mountain bike ride that I joined my friends for on Dartmoor. I took the S3 along the twisty roads from Bovey Tracey, up to Moretonhampstead and then the top of the moor at the Warren House Inn.

    I had the windows down all the way and the gearbox in "Sport" mode - the S3's turbo spool-up and exhaust bark are fantastic straight from the box, especially when there are lots of low walls for the noises to reverberate from. This is why I don't have a sensible diesel!











    ...and a little one of the ride:

    S3 Sportback S-Tronic (2010) - Brilliant Red
    Technology Pack (RNSE 2, Bluetooth, 6-CD stack), BOSE, roof rails, 2 child seats and 310bhp

    But how frustrating not to be able to fold a roof back and enjoy al-fresco motoring in such lovely warm weather. I hate being cooped up in a little box

    Sounds like fun mate.
    Looking forward to some similar drives myself now as our Aussie Spring/Summer starts kicking in.

    S3 in red looks fantastic by the way.
