Took my first road trip...

Wifey couldn't get off work so I flew solo to the NHRA drag races last wknd in Sonoma.Logged just over 325 miles (car turned 2K) and performed perfectly...as I would expect from a new car.What impressed me is the torque from the 2.0L,everytime I needed more the car would just respond,no gear change,just more acceleration.Everytime I looked down I was going 80 so I had to back off often.Didn't use the A/C because it wasn't too warm and I still only got 29.19mpg...dissapointed over that.I did have to idle in a traffic jam for what seemed like 30 minutes or so...I'm sure that effected mileage somewhat.
Car was fun to drive and the Magnaflow exhaust seems to free up some power on the upper end of the rpm band.

Here's me going over the GG bridge:
