Finally the old girl stretches her legs..and goodness she goes well!

I purchased the Audi S4 Avant just prior to the dreaded lockdown early last year. So although a year has passed I have been able to drive her very little indeed. Well, finally last week we managed to get 3 days off and so I prepared the S4 (checked the tyre pressures and fluids, all ok) and we set off.

Our destination was the wonderful thermal bath complex at Bacoli, have a look here: https://www.termestufedinerone.it/en/node/158

The place is truly magic! Only people who are resident in the area can enter, but that is extended to anyone who stays in a local hotel as then you gain temporary residence. We stayed as usual in a wonderful place, Villa Luisa www.villaluisaresort.it and walked to the baths, then we ate at the nearby Pizzeria Lucrino https://www.pizzerialucrino.com/

Here she is on the way, the car performed great and returned an average of about 9km/litre which for the Brits is about 24mpg. On the motorway it creeps up towards 10/28 but on the smaller roads this dives….But what a lovely driving experience, and if I was looking for economy then I would certainly not have bought a 4WD V8!
