    Default Made me smile......

    OK, I know I havent got the fastest car on here, and its a diesel... but I did smile today....

    Went to a customer meeting today with a colleague (who hasnt been in my VXRD yet)... he drives a BMW 330 petrol, and before that he had a BMW M3.

    He gets in my car, says Hi, and off we go..... 90 mile trip to customer..

    After about 30 minutes, and without me saying a single word about the car... he says "quick car this, isnt it Steve. What is it a 3 Litre or 2.5"

    I say, "neither... and its a Diesel..."

    Reaction 1

    I then say, ".....and its a 1.9"

    Reaction 2

    Anyway, we start chatting about cars, the remap etc etc...

    On the way home he comments how good these Diesels are and thought my car was really good.... and then he said "... and I should know as it feels nearly as quick as mine !!"

    Did he ask about the funny indicator thing and say how he wished he had one on his Beamer?

    I used to have a 330ci, & I know that a tuned/boxed 1.9 feels equally as pokey & aggressive.

    It's only if the driver revs higher that the beemer pulls away.

    The 1.9 cannot come close to the engine note though, it had a superb snarly howl that was just perfect.

    I like the turbo whistle, but it doesn't compare lol
