    Default my mate is miffed with me,,,

    we went for a bit of a play as he wanted to have a play with his new stop watch (his grand son races cycles) so we did some 50 to 70 mph in THIRD GEAR times,, holding 50 in third for 5 seconds then go, he did mine I did his, then we swaped cars, two grey haird old men playing with a stop watch perhaps we should grow up.

    ANYWAY mine 50 to 70 in third 4.2 sec, 4,5 sec, 4.4sec,

    his 6.8 sec, 7,2 sec, 7.0 sec,

    so whats your do?

    They are actually good figures to be honest mines won't do that. Judging by your m8's times and the brochure:

    Your m8 may have been in 4th gear.

    Kamar - yours is a diesel at a guess. You dont need high rpm as the torque is much higher. The gear ratios are a trade off between performance and economy, At 70mph your mate is using less fuel.
