(i know another tread by me, haha!) Once i get my New Corsa Sxi, i'll be taking to Luss or Helensburgh! Just Luv the country roads, and it gives you a real chance to open "her" up and see what "shes" made of on all those fast twisty road's! But i think it should only be done at night tho, so it's just you and the road!
What about you's, where's you favorite place to break-in your new set of wheels???

Country roads are always fun. I've got just under 800 on the clock now and in a couple of weeks I will be taking it on it's longest run yet, Blackpool to Cambridge and back again. A nice round trip of approx 450 miles, It's a business trip as well so the mileage claim will be nice!

Will be a good chance to see what MPG I get on a good long motorway run in 6th gear.

Im doing a business trip in my car in a few weeks from bolton to cambridge as well so that should take me over my 1000 miles, like samP said to its a nice way to get some money back from the mileage.

Took mine on the M77 down to Girvan to visit my parents. Ace fun on the back roads south of Ayr.... Motorway was good - cruise control = very handy!

Also have been up as far as Stirling in it, which was good too - nice weather, straight roads :lol:

Got 1400 miles on it so far.... last trip got 40.9 MPG, not bad for a 1.4 Auto :doublethumbs:

I did it in a dream before. :)

Sat nav tells me there's no camera's, and my eyes shows me that there's no coppers about. Sat nav also tells you the speed, which is a bit out in the speedo.

Remember though, this was all in a dream...
