    ok Aythree...lets weigh this up, i said 'dunno if it was mapped or not, lights were blacked out so possible'....the fact that this car stayed with me and the fact that his lights were blacked out led me to believe that it was possible that he could have a map...nothing more

    I wouldnt ordinarily expect a 170 diesel to stay with me mid range given that i am running a stage 1 map - as i say, simple logic with an inconclusive original comment from myself

    now...what the hell are you harping on about

    I know mate, I know.

    You should've just left it at "a car that had no right to stay with me, stayed with me. It must be mapped".
    Throwing tinted lights into the mix and then trying to justify it with "statistical" talk and special super powers of elimination made it funny to me.


    Last question... mapped or not???

    LOL you shouldn't publicly admit your missus (in a 170bhp? cooper s) can keep up with you in your 260+ bhp mapped S3.

    Your not hopeful of a racing career are you?

    haha almost as bad as your claim of wiping a newer cooper S out in your 182 aye at least mine is realistic

    I am happy with my car, i have beaten some pretty impressive machinery including matching newer S3's which i am more than happy with given the newer engine/turbo combo, plus i didn't lose to her Cooper

    although you could be a gem and give me some handy hints on how to win a mid range race seeing as your clearly a lot more experienced than me...

    I used to own a real mini, of the British Leyland 1981 variety, it was without doubt the most fun car I have ever owned. It also felt really fast because of the responsiveness and immediacy of the whole driving experience. But I would never have let my enthusiasm get the better of me at lights and tried to outdrag someone. I'm guessing that subjectivity must come into the comparisons here as well.

    I am pretty sure an S3 DSG will beat a 2wd mini off the line in the real world, Launch control. though not to sure if a standard one would or not, but a stage 1 would.

    Uh uh uh!!! One of them HAS to be driving an A3, otherwise this thread is going to get moved to the General Auto's forum again.

    I've not had alot of time in DSGs though so I don't have alot of experience just saying from what I have, I'd take a manual over auto in anything, I just find it more enjoyable
    Glad you used personal, but trust me DSG is quicker than an S3 manual

    i think that's suggesting that it's fast enough to set your trousers on fire.

    Hence the phrase " this car will set your pants on fire"....?

    Yep, never tried it either of course. But remember, if the pavement was wide enough an A3 would be faster.

    you dont need a small mini for that, just a stolen police cruiser in Las Vegas

    and I said personally cus I'd not had a lot of experience with the DSG or Auto's but if they really are faster then I wont argue

    there's a few videos on youtube of race drivers in GTIs going against each other (manual vs. DSG). there really is no contest. the DSG wins every time.

    At GTi International this year the DSG equipped cars were very quick.
    Lots of fwd Mk5 Gtis doing excellent times.

    Maybe not everyones cup o` char is one thing but they are quicker than manual, certainly in a sprint anyway.
