How many miles do you drive a year
« on: January 29, 2015, 09:15:30 AM »
Just interested to see how many miles everyone will be covering in their Abarth. I know it's a second car for a number of members, I'll probably cover about 12,000 this year. Not the most appropriate for that many miles but I still love it every time I go out! :)

I don't know if it's just me but the car feels much quicker in the cold mornings

6-8k miles per year. Certainly disagree with the cold start having better performance, find it is jutters a lot more trying to pull away compared to when the engine is heated up.

I've done 10,000 miles since the end of March last year, so it's going to be 12,000 a year.

I had to sell my old AGP Esseesse as I did 25,000 miles in one year....  That cost a bit in fuel! :o

I averaged about 3500 miles a year in my old car.

However, I have already done 750 miles in the Abarth and I've only had it 6 weeks!  That's a hell of a lot for me.  I'm trying to get the first lot of miles on before booking a trackday... and I just can't help but drive it.   8) ;D

I've done about 3500 miles a year in the Abarth - mostly to meets and events.

The S5 Sportback does the motorway and urban grind for me. Between 20 - 25,000 miles a year in that.
