    Until then i'll enjoy the comfort and reliability, with a bit of peeling paint here and there.
    Wow how does your 380 manage to get such good fuel consumption? Mine averaged 10.6l/100km

    I live 45km from work and the average speed limit is 80-100 with no lights until the very end. I check the tyre pressure weekly and drive it like a sane person

    If i drive at 95-100, locked in 5th the instant fuel economy is 7-7.5l/100

    Not being a smart arse, but isn't that normal?

    Also not trying to be a smart arse, but what is the overall fuel consumption as you can't only travel the open road for every journey you take.
    The average I quoted from mine was for 3 years travel calculated, from fuel used and distance travelled, not from the fuel consumption display.

    My bonnet, roof and boot started getting that milky look and losing some of the shine. Only very, very slightly and no actual clear coat peeling/cracks. Cut and polish 2 years ago and sealant applied regularly fixed it right proper. However the milkiness continued on the roof. 1 month ago made the call to get it black gloss vinyl wrapped. I'm real happy - going to post some photos in a month or two. think I got a bit ripped as it cost $350 but hey, still cheaper than a respray.
