2008 Audi R8: Welcome to Texas
June 18, 2008
Big place this Texas. Like real big. Kim Kardashian's ass big. Should take us an entire day of hard driving to make it through the other side, plus we're going to make a stop in Lockhart, about 150 miles west of Houston for some of the state's finest BBQ (according to Texas Monthly magazine)...
So with the R8's navigation system navigating we're hammer down on the I-10 looking forward to some of the world's best brisket. But get this. Just outside of Columbus, with the navigation system telling us there's 666 miles of Texas to go, the R8's instrument panel lights up. Car wants oil. One quart.
You follow? 666 and a warning light, at the same time. Coincidence? Not from where I'm sitting. Freaky is more like it.
By the way, that quart of Castol Synthetic was like six bucks.
