I've just got back a little while ago, had a really excellent weekend. The drive down was very enjoyably, fast, easy flowing and the car was an absolute joy, they do make very good motorway mile munchers Activas.
Today was a bit wet, well at times very wet and it didn't ease off too much. However there was still a fair turn out despite the virtually none stop rain. A little different from last years DSM where I got sunburn!
Jim gave my Activa a check over with his E.L.I.P (I think it was elip!) Lexia substitute, apart from an error I expected due to it having a manual boost controller and the steering wheel angle sensor fault, which is apparently quite common, all is well with my Xant, its very healthy
There were some very nice cars there today and as always it was great catching up with people and chatting cars. Nice to meet a few new people and put more names to faces.
The drive home could not have been any more wet, there certainly couldn't have been any more spray, thats for sure! The Activa averaged 30MPG on the drive down, im impressed with that figure given my cruising speed. It did 32mpg on the return trip which was a slower journey, so 31 average. Im quite confident that with careful driving it could easily exceed 35mpg. It never put a foot wrong weekend. All in, a very enjoyable 490 mile trip and a very enjoyable day. I have to confess that one reason I went, especially given the known weather forecast, was to have a nice drive out in my Activa
I have taken a good few pictures, ill stick some up later on
