    Sat at the lights on the new Rugby bypass when a guy (must have been 60+) in the most awful snot green vw scirocco pulled up along side me.. I thought "I'm not getting stuck behind this doner" but i then realised he was revving his engine up, obviously thinking he was just unaware, i floor it, next minute he's hoofed it past me..

    Now I'm fully aware that my 1.8t isn't amazingly quick being standard with no map and his car was a 2.0 Tfsi but come on... Made me want to pull my finger out and get the car sorted with a remap as i was left embarrassed at those lights...

    Sorry bud but I managed to see one of these off with just a remap and a cracked turbo. In standard form they aren't very fast.

    He probably wasn't trying, and the revving was him slipping the clutch, it just looked fast because you have the N75 unplugged!

    Old man = poor clutch control and poor enough hearing to not hear the engine revving.

    Or he can't launch his car properly, but I prefer the first one :lmfao:

    I can just imagine, it's cribs night at the local village hall and all the old farts are hearing how Fred in his new late life crisis car, spanked some youngster in an Audi S3. He'll be beating the purple rinses off now I reckon, he's a stud.

    You need to rectify this - you've let us all down now

    It wasnt even a stock A3, it was one running on actuator pressure so probably making best part of 120hp.

    I'm sorry, but am I reading this right, your A3 1.8T got smoked by a green Scirocco driven by a man in slippers?

    I thought A3 1.8Ts were all suppose to be the fastest thing on earth!

    Almost JoJo, the fastest car in the world is in fact a Nissan Sunny, but the A3 1.8T is still more desirable than a Bugatti Veyron....apparently.

    Nah u got this all wrong he didn't beat u as u thought he was just borrowing his sons car and got confused with the clutch pedal and accelerator and was so terrified that he couldn't find the brakes!! So u win for being a young safe driver that can see the pedals !!

    1-0 to the young boys hahaha
