I've read a few posts on this forum regarding 'S3 versus Porsche Boxster or Megane Sport etc etc' and thought I'd let you know about a run in I had today with a sit on Lawn Mower. I have an A3 1.6se which gives out a whopping 101 bhp and is un-chipped apart from the usual stone chips on the bonnet and a few MacDonalds chips that my daughter has dropped down the back seat. This afternoon I was sat at the traffic lights and in the lane to my nearside was what looked like a standard green council operated sit on lawn mower. I was looking cool wearing my Raybans and Bluetooth headset and out of the corner of my eye could see the council guy looking equally cool wearing his yellow hi-vis vest and orange ear defenders. Anyway he was giving it some revs and I knew he wanted a challenge. As the lights changed he floored it and left me standing over the first ten yards and I was lucky to get in front of him before the two lanes narrowed into one. This genuinely happened!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif So next time you see one of these things anywhere near AmD remember it's probably not there to cut the grass!
