Default Long distance test

Just to share my experience of driving 2x950km (Belgium-Austria-Belgium) for a ski-weekend

-On the highway averaged 150km/hour (fully legal in Germany )
-average Consumption: 8.2l/100km (Diesel)
-Top: 200km/hr (not flat out even, and not downhill :wink: )
-Good handling on ice, despite the summer tires
-80-150 is great
-No rattles or whistling (even @200km/hr)
-I get the impression the 150W sound sytem is improving with aging (it's now 1 month old), bass is ok now.
-One small downside: not too much legroom in the back (we were 3 adults in the car)
-The DTE keeps puzzling me: When I re-fill just after the warning light switches on, I can never get more than 45 liters in the tank. Leaving me with 16liters "safety" = 200km...
