It’s 65 miles to Falkirk, it’s rainy and overcast and neither of us are wearing sunglasses.

I’m currently sitting a Tesco’s car park in Dundee whilst Supernaught uses the facilities.

We should make it to the Audi in about an hour.

This is the taxi that greeted me this morning.

You'll be getting to Falkirk around the same time as Cheezey will be leaving to collect his very own roffle win from over here.

If it's as windy up there as it is here then driving the high-sided* Audi back will be fun. :-D

 

I know Supernaut has been coveting A2s ever since he saw a couple in that there London at the motorshow a couple of years ago.

Yes, pedantry fans, it does.

However some rough calculations would indicate a figure of 73mpg for the run home.

Christ. I'd be lucky if the BMW averaged more than 30mpg.

Have a couple of photos of the journey back.

Yes, we went up the A93 because why not?

Somewhere a bit further north, the Howdy Hay Too decided it had low coolant (we were already aware of the minor coolant leak).

For those of you who don’t know, the Glenshhe ski centre starts at the summit of the Cairnwell Pass, Britain’s highest main road, it was about 90 miles from where we’d filled up in Glenrothes.

Here’s £18.50 worth of fine German engineering with a mere 338,000 miles under their wheels.
79A0AED5-B231-495E-B471-AAD44AEB5B6C.jpeg

It was at this point that I’d smelled something burning.
Without opening the bonnet in a howling gale the smell disappeared so we carried on down the mountain.

A few miles later I got a low coolant warning and after topping up everything seemed ok.

Three miles later the warning was back.
We concluded that we hadn’t bleed the cooling system, topped up again and hooked up an obd2 reader in place if the non-functioning temp gauge.

The live data showed coolant temps between 88 and 92 for the next 15 miles so I pulled over to disconnect the reader and then carried on.

Needless to say I made it the 40 miles home.
