    Just as a comparison, the HGP Bi-Turbo R32 at GTI-i this year reached and well exceeded 60mph by 60ft! But with a 2.8s 0-60 its not surprising!

    I doubt it rich. it would have cut a 1.8s ish 60ft. Took 2.8-60. I'd guess 120 feet would be nearer the mark. On the basis an s3 passes the 1/th mile post at 65-68mph, it's going to take about a 1/12 mile to get to 60mph, give or take, so say 150m ish

    You and taxi's just dont mix,think they've got you marked then again your not hard to spot.Next time take your moggy and let it eat the taxi drivers problem solved.Also buy a cb so you know when the sods are after you. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/burningmad.gif[/img]

    thats based on constant acceleration though which you wont get in a car, due to torque 'curve' and gear changes.
