2009 Audi S5: 5 Kilomile Update

July 03, 2009

milestone-banner.jpg OK, I admit it. This is a terrible image. The 5,000 mile threshhold caught me off-guard without a real camera.

Luckily, the 5k mark came just as I steered our 2009 Audi S5 into a fuel station. Well, almost: I had to drive a half mile past and come back to nail 5,000 miles exactly at the pump.

All I had with me was my Blackberry, and cell phone cameras leave a lot to be desired, especially if they spend much time in a pocket.

For the record, it drank 14.225 gallons and the trip odometer read 199.6 miles. That works out to 14 mpg; not one of its better performances.

On the bright side, I bagged some nice suspension shots (with a real camera) earlier in the day. Look for the S5 suspension walkaround next week. Several interesting twists reside in these wheelwells.
