Shitting in the shallow end. *A2 fixt*

What's the mpg like? Don't these use ridiculously little amounts of fuel?

I've got accustomed to ignoring the beeps that German cars love to do. My Z4 inexplicably beeps at me only sometimes when I turn the ignition on to give me a fright. Other times it's perfectly happy with life. Absolutely no indication on what fuss it needs. 

I'll let you know when I do the calculations. It's definitely big mpgs but it's still running on the first tank so I don't have solid data till I refill it for the brim to brim accuracy.

Is that going to be like 600 miles in or something so far? 🤣

It's on 563 miles so far but it's had a full tank plus 20 litres and there's still half a tank left. 

It's all written down so the maths will work themselves out when I next fill it.

Daughters ibiza same engine does early 60s but by heck there a noisy engine.  

They're noisey low down but seems to be pretty quiet at cruising speed.  Loud round town but once you're in 4th and 5th it's whisper* quiet*

That's a bit of a stretch but I know what you mean 😉 

Is your's that ridiculously tall geared you need to be in 2nd gear round town.

Yeah pretty much! They're definitely geared for cruising rather than town diving. 

Maybe I should have said it's less noisy the faster you go. That's probably more accurate!
