    Vehicle : Astra GTC VXR

    Trim : VXR

    Engine : 2.0t

    Year : 2013

    Default £3K vs £53K

    Now before anyone says anything i don't condone any kind of racing on the public roads but it was a reaction (i know a bit silly).
    Coming back from Asda after purchasing the new Top Gear dvd i had some silly idiot in a new BMW M3 up my chuff then he decided it would be amusing to overtake me and then slow right down. Now i don't know if it was my exhaust or my GSi badge on the back but he then gave it the beans and i followed, considering his car is a 4 litre v8 and the GSi is a 3.2 v6 it wasn't really pulling away from me so i'm rather chuffed.
    For a car which is £50k more than my GSi if i was the bloke in the M3 i'd be wanting my money back.
    Sometimes just paying for the badge isn't the sensible option.

    A VXR vs a 335i is good entertainment.
    A 335i is £40k with options, and flat out, pulls away, errm, a few feet?

    They don't like it up 'em.

    There is no way your Vectra could live with an M3 if it was really trying.Its 0 -60 time is 4.6 seconds,the Vectra cant even react that quick to the throttle pedal being pressed .I once made a Porsche look very silly on an urban road,but I'm under no illusion that any open stretch of road would have seen it disappearing into the distance

    It's not always about the horsepower, sometimes it's knowing how to drive, and the limits you and your vehicle can go to. I once p'd all over an Audi TT coupe - with a Volvo 240 saloon. It was on a tight 180 down hill bend and he bottled out.
    If the BMW was new, perhaps he didn't know it's limits? Who cares which is faster on paper, you made your point.
