the car is now very close to 5000 kilometers (3 106 miles) and next weekend will do more 1200 kilometers (746 miles). :D

So far the consumptions are in 7.4l / 100kms (38mpg).

The routes that I do are mostly motorway somewhat mountainous, which does not help to lower consumption. :P

And that's it, there are more than 746 miles and nothing to point at. This weekend I made Braga - Chaves - Madrid - Braga without any problem.

On the way to Madrid the suitcase was as it can be seen in the photo below and we were 3 adults in the car. I thought that on the way up to Chaves, on the A11, the car would have difficulty maintaining cruising speeds in the 130km / h but managed without any problem. Of course in this section the averages went up well, having arrived at Chaves with averages of 9l / 100kms.

After Chaves to Madrid, the averages lowered considerably, having gone to the 6l. The fact that the route was mostly flat helped a lot.

The boring part was that in Madrid they were spreading salt in the streets and I got the car full of salt :(

The return trip was a bit more boring because I caught a lot of rain practically since I left Madrid. He forced it to run below 120km / h. On arrival in Portugal we were greeted by 'Ana' and due to the heavy rain the ACC was shut down due to weather conditions not allowing a correct reading of the surroundings. I ended up doing Madrid - Braga without any stop in 6:30h

As everyone has said that the painting of the astra is very sensitive and that quickly gets risky, I chose to schedule a wash in a detailer near my workplace.

Friday will be washed for the first time and the plastics of the interior will be conditioned.

I hope the man will not forget to take pictures with the various steps of the car wash for me then put here. :D

Had my astra for almost a year and only gotten one chip on drivers door. It was because the guy who was overtaking me threw a bunch of rocks on my car since his tires caught part of the road that had some rocks left over from a construction truck.

Last Friday I went to pick up the car and the cleaning was impeccable.

However I noticed that from the trip to Madrid I was left with the cap with ink faults because of small stones that a truck on the freeway was shooting behind.

There I will have to spend some more money repairing the paint flaws.

I leave here some photos after the cleaning and in the last photo you can see the bigger paint failure.

:lol: I am exactly the same. Tesco have had more money out of me in the last 48 than in 2 weeks! The picture really doesn't do it justice, it suits it down to the ground and really does make it stand out.
