Re: Got beat by Audi Estate

I had a run in with a Carrera 4 yesterday, he was behind me all the way across town driving on my bumper cos I was sticking to the speed limits but soon as I got to a nice A road off of a mini roundabout I booted it in 2nd and left him, I stuck at 60 for him to catch up because it was double whitelines and twisty so he couldn't try to pass. Then I got to the dual carriage way he moved out to try pass, but I dropped to 3rd and floored it upto 110 and he wasn't even close. Even if he had managed to make it passed. It would be a 60k porker vs a 12k scooby lol

Had the same from a standing start at the Dartford bridge toll booth. We both wanted the same lane, I took him in 3rd gear by a good distance. funnily enough I also thought about his 60k price tag ha ha ha

Re: Got beat by Audi Estate

this things an abomination to the senses. A horrible mushy pea green. But looks really 'german' styled. Left hand drive but a brit plate. Its gotta have an rs4 engine in it.

I had a good little run with a motorbike the other day. Held up pretty well too til he did a crafty death defying triple weave overtake.

on the a406 heading in bethnal green direction near the olympic site. The speed camera drag strip. Once you learn the blind bend underpasses and camera positions its great for taking on business man beasts. Its more like an acceleration and gear change test than just a top end race.
Ive done an m5 and a porker 911 down there :-)
but was destroyed by an rs4 and a cosworth sierra!!

There was a tuning company a few years back that did an engine swap on one put in an rs6 with large turbos to the tune of 700bhp and Audi rims width enough to it down. Top end was just under 200 mph

Looks like the dash of the E39 M5, 400bhp (what I had before I got my scooby ). Though there are a lot of E39's modded to be a bit more powerful than that.
