    Following on from my worries with a boost leak, it was simply the top hose had split.

    So after clearing fault codes and a new piece of tubing - 1/2 tank off Momentum - went for a drive :racer:


    Anyone seen the new Beetle? Looks like a Audi TT from the back - but it was giving it the treatment last night, overtook....


    Looked down 5100 rmp - 128mph! and still pulling...reckon i could easily get into the 130 +

    TBH i'm sure it would do more than 130 without too much trouble. The book figure on a standard 1.8T A4 is about 140mph, so a tuned A3 should easily see 150+

    I was thinking the exact same thing when I read the topic title earlier!

    We've all done it I'm sure at some point or another, but best not to mention any names on here!

    TBH i suspect theres not really much the police could do even if they knew all your details.

    Without any sort of proof, it simply wouldnt stick.

    Now had you filmed yourself driving down the M594 at 267mph, and it was clearly obvious from the video that it was you, your car, and that particular road, then you'd be liable to get done over.

    Posting on youtube is pretty retarded as they have video proof, but I can't see that the others would stand in a court of law.

    Basically - start at the Peugeot Garage side of the roundabout, and you can judge both traffic from A27, and incoming to Chichester.

    It's Straight 1/4 mile from standstill, til the "duck" sign by the caravan park on your left to bognor A259. Great place to open up.
