First six months...

Post by CaesarTookControl » Sun Mar 15, 2020 3:15 pm

A45 report:

Ok for fuel (even in S+ mode)

Fantastic launch start.

A45 owners acknowledge each other on the road (good bunch)...

No reliability issues (touch wood).

Everyone mentions the RS3.

Hold function is useful.

People talk to you at the petrol pumps.

A part of the best gen of super hatches (future gens watered down, OPF etc etc)

No mods and still entertained...

Might mod at some point though :)

£400+ for service at MB (fair)

£1500 per year for MB warranty (...)

£20 per month for road tax.

Blips on manual upshift are heavenly.

Magnet for A-hole tailgaters...

Wife and two young kids loaded without fuss...

I keep chickening out of Parktronic (terrifying).

My brother saw flames from the rear when I race started :o .... Anyone else had this?.

Epic in the wet...

Brakes are excellent (thank god)...

Appreciate the comment especially as I'm 72 and dreading the thought of once again not driving due to the current situation but when in Saudi it wasn't too bad however seeing it in the garage now I'm home is definitely not nice.

Keep safe is the main thought that comes to mind.
