    Well...
    1) Become an extremely good driver...like moi [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
    2) Get your car chipped by Oettinger
    and 3) Fit a aftermarket DV to enable smooth high bosst shifts!

    and hey presto, you is one quick car!

    So you had to get the knees of your trousers dirty too, eh? The things you A3 drivers will do...

    Yeah, that time is possible...
    Unfortunately many of us witnessed Gambba's finest hour (or 15 seconds anyway) and we're never going to hear the end of it! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/goofy.gif[/img]

    What's that noise?
    Sounds like music of some sort...sorta...
    Is it trumpets?
    No...it's only one trumpet...being played very loudly!

    Evidently you have to be incredibly modest to achieve good times too! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Re: Hello!

    Hi Imran and welcome here too. Have a look around at what car u like and have a drive of them both, im sure u will know straight away which one u want to have.

    How about telling us how u managed to write off ur 306??

    As for 0-60 times they are only as good as the driver and shouldnt be relied upon 100%. Every one of us drive our cars different to the next person so driving techniques vary considerably. Next we'll be hearing how joe bloggs left a 911 turbo for dust on a A road in his 1.6 A3.

    Cheers [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    LMAO @ Drill & Mo

    Well 2 weeks ago driving down to see my GF in brighton. On the A23 jus gettin on the M23 when the left side ball joint snapped (i think) car well all over the place. Lost control and hit the left hand side barrier, bounced off and ended up facing the right way on the outside lane. Luclky no one went to me!
