Took advantage of a warm sunny weekend- to finally get some coupe time.

She has had a service-fresh oil, filters, plugs, - and so a proper shakedown was needed.

Cue several hours of driving- over two days. Taking in the sun and enjoying that five pot burble. She did not miss a beat and felt great-even though I know that there are some long term things n the near future that I want sorted.

Its the not driving them enough regularly that kills them. And it was great to finally have the weather to have her back out. Even the a/cis still working and keeping the inside cool.

Time to plan where to take her this summer - eu is out as the calendar is already full - but Uk/scotland is possible. I doubt she will be going to wales with the 20mph nonsense.

But just nice to have been out for a spin-more to come!

Regards

MM

This is my first spring with my new-to-me Turbo Plus and my first in a Coupe for 15 years. You're right, these need to be used regularly and I won't take mine out in the wet so it's been too long a wait. I love having the sunroof open on a sunny day with the 5 cylinder burbling away. Nothing better.
