Finally it's in my hands!

Picked her up Friday, been loving every minute of it! Will post a few pics tomorrow hopefully, at work at the moment.

For some odd reason, I don't mind driving slow (ie below the speed limit) in the 135! I just love being in it! Have babied it quite a bit though.

Was it just mine, or was the fuel consumption extremely high on delivery? It was up around 18L/100km. It's down to 10.5 now after 300km or so.


Only have one pic for now, as I don't have PS to edit the pics yet... And sorry for the size! I can't change the resolution.... need photshop badly...

I'll be honest, I never noticed my economy - I was having too much fun! However I'm averaging 13.7 now which is probably fair given my local runs and track time.

I can get 600km out of a tank on the highway easy enough. Will average around 400 around town, although that could improve if I didn't enjoy first gear so much off the line...

out of curiosity, how many km's did your's have on delivery? mine was 8.

The average fuel usage on delivery was probably high because they probably just turned it on, gunned it to where it had to go.. shut it down.. and repeat :P
