What do the std GTI's put out ?, is it 150bhp. I know there is the 180 version.
Just had one behind me going through the village. Sat at 40 until bang on the open limit sign and then booted it. He had pulled slightly out as if he had contemplated overtaking as I booted it. By the time we hit...cough 110 down a nice sweeper of a clear road I had 6-7 car lengths on him. By the time I had taken the twisties at the end and slowed and taken the large off camber roundabout to join the Dually, he was not a contender.
Nice to know that once in a while a 'Quality' and 'sensible' car has the turn of speed and decent enough handling to show a clean pair of heels to the GTI crowd [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
