Well took her for her first big trip, went to nelson on friday night and just got back into chch today. One of the best drives ive had the car was nearly flawless. the front airdam almost fell off overtaking a bit too fast and the exhaust scrapes going through big dips so a few things to sort oh and a strange electrical gremlins in it somewhere. But the best part is i averaged 10.2L per 100kms on the trip!!! I also cant wait to get aircon hooked up.

Awesome dude! That fuel economy is pretty good too! My 1.8 turbo seems to guzzle gas a fair bit..

Well done Stuart. Just deserves. Great economy. When the 240Z came out it was respected for it economy.about 25-28 mpg. So probably not as good as your's. Awesome job.
