Was behind him at the lights and suspected he was going to tan it. Sure enough.

I didn't reel him in 'til the top end of 2nd and in to 3rd! :shock: :? :(

WTF! According to parkers it's 0-60 is 9.6s or something. Bearing in mind I've kept up with an auto 330ci before now I really did expect to do better.

I didn't burn it off the lights in fairness. I set off normal-ish, then once rolling with traction, floored it.

Once hes got momentum and speed up would be difficult to catch.

The third law of war. Suprise is your best weapon.

It must of been modded mate. My 1.8 keeps up with the bmw 325 to a 100. 1.8/2.0 are easy prey :evil:

Was definitely weird. I didn't do a full launch though. I waited 'til it was rolling with the clutch fully out before planting it. He wasn't that far in front at that point though.

I was not happy. Still aren't. :evil:

The slowest car I've dabbled with and the only one to OWN me.
