    Default How hard do you drive your car?

    Hiya..
    I was wondering how hard people drive their cars?
    Let them redline, run with high-revs for longer periods of time and so on, brake hard etc. etc.
    I drive my 2.0T fairly hard but not too hard... in my opinion of course

    So how about it?
    How do YOU drive your veccy?

    I take it easy in mine too, it's got to last a bit longer yet and I don't want any nasty repair bills. I drive it hard occasionally if the mood and conditions tempt me but hardly ever redline it.

    normally I shift up at ~2000, this is the way avoiding penalties with my 3.2

    sometimes I smoke it just to clean out the exhaust pipes
