Dealer: free keyring, non euro plates, half a tank n 15 mile on the clock no die-cast toy car or R8 Carbon Fibre Pen.Old Car Passat 1.6TDI Estate, comfy ride, comfy seat & economical (which im comparing to in the below text)
Today I collected my new company car (spec below, hopefully if signature thing works).
Quiet Smooth Solid Tight Sluggish are the first impression when driving the 8 mile back to work.
Then I drove Sunderland to Leeds for a Job, 200mile round trip, 56mpg there & 67.3mpg back. Long term average after tonight's round the houses 58.8mpg.
Sore arse when I arrived Leeds, the seats are not as comfy or as buckety, disappointing considering the extra £ spent on leather and Sport trim to have a wide backed seat and less comfy (may get used to it).
Performance, found it sluggish till I realised I had to use the gears more. Still not give it full beans yet, even then they'l just be baked and not chilli like you S guys. I best not judge performance till ive ran up 1000 mile. Twice today ive had to have two attempts to get into 1st!
Ride/Handling: firmer but not annoyingly so, pot holes are a solid 'thuck' not a 'crash' . Holds the road well and stays flat in corners. Go Cart in comparison to the Passat and that's in eco mode, the steering really tightens up in Dynamic mode, I found Dynamic mode no good for motorways, I tended to weave down the lane.
Lovin: The looks, Amalfi White, the interior, DAB Radio, Sat Nav, Dimming Rear Mirror, Hold Assist
Not lovin: Firm seat, Standard sound system, Small fuel tank
Wish I had: Audi Sound System £255 in place of Park Assist(£240)
Favourite Radio Stations are Absolute Radio 80's and 90's
