    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 90k

    Default Got smoked by a bmw 120d

    I know my cars running a bit slack at the minute it seems like one day I drive it and it goes like stink and then another day it's really laggy and unresponsive... Very strange!

    But today she was running somewhere in the middle, and I got totally blown away at the lights by a 120d! Now I know there smaller and 163hp and I did have a bit of wheel spin because it was wet but this thing really pulled away from me!

    Was quite embarrassing actually lol

    Surely it should of been alot closer match? Is my car running that badly? Lol

    Being RWD will be a major advantage for him, plus having more power and torque, you were never going to win, plus who's to say it was standard?

    I'm not being horrible here but what one earth made you think you'd live with a car that is lighter, and more powerful? I'm guessing it was newer than your Vec too so was probably near the cliamed manufacturers power than yours is? I'm not meaning to rain on your parade but everything pointed to what was going to happen?
