7500 km update
Time flies, and how. 7 months already with 7500+ km on the odo!
When I look back in time and reminisce – what started with a preliminary quest last year to search for a car that would have a powerful engine + beautiful design element + stellar ride & handling + good on tech & luxury – ended with us owning what Audi calls, the core of its brand!
For those who live the IT humdrum life would know that after a hectic work week, weekends are all about relaxation, fun and moments that allow the family to spend a lot of time together. Ditto with the A4.
Time spent with the A4 in the past 7 months has been akin to time spent on a weekend:-
- Relaxation – Check. Absolute comfort while driving.
- Fun – Check. Lot of elements all around.
- Family bonding – Check. We travel together, quite a lot. Kiddo (now a teenager), wifey & me. Sometimes parents, sometimes in-laws. All, a happy lot.
The last 7 months have been nothing but sheer comfort, indulgence and ofcourse a bit of that “Four Ringer” badge magic.
The delivery day back in Apr’22 is still very fresh in my mind, and I like to go back to this pic every now and then, seems like just yesterday we picked up the A4:-
With the B9.5 gen facelift changes both in & outside, Audi has really nailed the design element to an altogether next level and redefined the meaning of the word “wow”:-
From being smitten with the design to being astounded by the reality of owning a 2.0 turbo petrol, the remit of the ownership experience emotion couldn’t have been more dramatic.
As some of you might know, I had been driving the frugal Vento (and the hermit Dzire before that) for the past decade or so. Both diesels. Both having <1.5 liter engine cap.
So when the transition was being made to a super 190 hp, 2.0 liter turbo-charged petrol car, I kind of forecasted what was in stake. But to actually experience the change is an altogether different story. Yes, I am talking about the running costs.
I have these stats from Fuelio which I refer every now & then. I started using this app only from about 2500 km mark or so.
Around 12 km/l avg FE so far as per the app, with best of 14 km/l and worst of 10.25 km/l:-
And the story goes on and on..should you have any other Q, please feel free to shoot.
I usually don’t have a OCD behavior as such about tracking these numbers day in/out, but like to keep a logical tab on where the graph is heading each month.
To continue the topic of app-talk screenshots, here are a couple from the myAudi Connect:-
I am still a “Newbie” per Audi:
Back to present day
Visited the lovely Glosswerkz workshop for the regular cleaning/detailing AMC and the results are just superlative, as always:-
