No, it's a beer brand invented as recently as 1997!

I suspect I'd like that Mythos too! The beer is probably named after the Audi colour. Honest!

Yep, you're right it does, but my D2 S8 still smelt fantastic after 14 years! It must be what I smell of!

For sale, Eau de Peach. Gives your car the special aroma that can only come from The Professor! Not convinced a career in marketing would have suited me!

Thanks Alps. The plans, are not to change it one anyway shape or form, but of course keep it extra clean and shiny (as well as an everyday car can be). First full week of ownership has been excellent. One group of yoofs trying to race me in Daddies Golf GTi, but still taking it easy. Attention I never got in the S8.

First proper clean today as well!

First proper drive today. Visiting the outlaws in Sheffield, I needed to pop over to Manchester Airport to collect the brother in law. It eats those twisty miles so we'll. The punch for safe overtaking is great. Dynamic mode through the sweeping bends and comfort mode for those dodgy Yorkshire pot hole ridden roads. I love the tech. The sat nav, phone connected stuff and sound system are fantastic. I think I may be converted to newer cars! Perhaps I need two, one old and one new.

I used Woodhead this time Ian, but have done various. I grew up on the edge of the Peak District (Leek), so know bits of it very well. Where did you stay?

House on the Stancliffe Hall estate, in Darley Dale, right on the edge of the Peak Park, just south of Chatsworth

How are you finding living with the S3 Rob?

Anything you are especially glad the car has or realised you would have liked?

How are you finding it on fuel and what sort of miles do you get out a tank?

Loving it Graham! It does everything extremely well and I love the tech you get with a new car. Nothing on the option check list I feel aggrieved for not having, but if it had the B&O I would have been delighted (the base system is good, but I'm a bit fussy about such things).

Economy - well, I came from an S8, so of course is excellent in comparison. I'll see what the average is on the way home later, but I think into the 30's.

It goes, stops and corners better than most things I've owned (ok, not as quick in a straight line as my K04'd B5), but quiet adequate for general use.

However....... I really miss the character of the D2 S8 - it always felt like an event every time I got in it and I'd always glance back at it every time I parked and walked away!

I have a solution - I need two cars!  Sadly I was put at risk of redundancy last week, so that's not likely to happen anytime soon.

Rob
