    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! ;)

    I've just come back from that neck of the woods! Awesome roads but you do find the odd sheep likes to run out on you :gun2:

    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.
    Second best colour ;)
