    Default big black car with twin scoops

    I was driving back from Manchester airport the other morning on a road alongside an industrial estate, 50 limit, one lane, doing the limit. A black car - saloon or hatch not sure, caught me up very quickly and as the road was opening up at a roundabout into a dual carriageway he was nosing up the inside. Thinking he was turning left i moved right to let him turn a bit quicker and the cheeky ****** tried to take me up the inside.

    The road goes uphill just after the roundabout - when I hit the roundabout he was much faster - and I was on the grip limit. Out of the corner up the hill and the Astra CDTI 150 + caterman + pipercross panel filter did the bussiness.

    It was neck and neck to the extent that when I held a gear just too long he nosed ahead - twice. The thing is I would love to know what car it was. It had twin air scoops in the bonnet shaped from a thin outside to a wider centre with mesh in them. It was a really shiny new looking model if that helps but I only saw the front and 1 side of the car. Any ideas ?

    Its something that can hold its own against a smaller lighter tuned diesel going uphill (where I feel the diesels have an advantage).

    I think one of them might have had the edge.... by about a mile.
