    This would be me

    Too many to bore you with fella! lol

    Here's a couple of pics of the sort of cars I tend to 'play' about with at the weekends - although 9 out of 10 times my S3 has the least amount of bhp!

    We are all a bunch of petrol heads mate and so we never compete against each other as such.....that's when things usually take a turn for the worst :-\

    I'm running about 255bhp at the moment - so 'just' enough to keep up on the roads we travel on and with the cars we convoy with :)

    I'm getting more to the point of what cars haven't I had a 'play' with yet in my S3 lol.

    What are you running in yours then Joe? You get a thumbs up from the driver at all?

    I find that's always a nice feeling when you don't know the chap and get a thumbs up....a bit of mutual respect on the road for each others performance vehicles :)

    The sound of them is awesome... I had a play with one on the way to Aberdeen.... When he was dropping it a cog and nailing it... The back squatted and it sounded like a whailing banshee....:)

    he he guys driving with porsche is totaly difrent world, but not with that new "things". Of course i am classic cars lover and i swear only on old model porsche just like Magnusen. I drove almost all models of porsche and yes they are strong wich is normal with all this tehnology we have in this times but i will always said there is no better sound as good old aircooled 6 zyl with turbo charger. But even i agree with manny porsche lovers that best 911 ware 993 model and i hope someday one will be in my garage. Great you enjoy driving JoeeS3 and i hope your wish come true someday when you said "wouldn't mind one myself"chears

    Yeah, I have been waiting for videos of the mk2 on the road. Cheese and rice, that thing accelerates rather quickly

    very true with the taking the 'taking a turn for the worst' my friend wrote off his stage 1 focus st the other night. I'm not too sure what i'm running atm but its a revo stage 2. hopefully getting a custom stage 2 from bill in the new year. i didn't get any thumbs up at all :( i did when i had a play with a type r the other day though which was nice.

    i would have one if someone just handed me the keys and said it's yours but i dont think it's the type of car i would go out and buy. i would prefer to have something a little more unique

    The only way I'm embarrassing Porsche 911 Turbos is on my bike, I love fast cars and do some rallying/co driving in a modified 205 but I'll need 40K invested in a light weight 4wd car to get bike style acceleration.I'll never forget the Wide arch Golf from Max power magazine years ago, it had the drive train from an RS2 and had the RS2 engine in the back..... Lovely jubly.
