    Default My Siggy is officially slow!!

    Have been in eco mode recently trying to get the most out of a full tank, but today on the way to work I had a (niceley modded) mk4 Golf GTI up my toot so I thought i'd give it some beans round the back roads as it is a quite road with no other traffic about. He was with me all the way right on my bumper, I expected him to keep up in the corners but not on the straight.
    I felt very let down, But I thought oh well it must be the turbo model, as he went past me at a junction there was no red I on the back so it must have just been the N/A model. I am not a happy bunny

    There is always someone faster than you, sometimes even in a slower car

    Chin up... and slow down, winters coming

    driving style and roadcraft can mean a slower car can be quicker -

    nothing to say his motor wasnt modded and just left unbadged on the rear to confuse people - like he has done to you

    and
    his motor will have weighed less so power to weight ratio would have been in his favour

    Mk41.8 20vT 150 bhp 8.5 (0-60mph) 134 (top speed)
    Mk41.8 20vT 6spd 180 bhp 7.9 (0-60mph) 138 (top speed)

    so not as bad as you thought ??

    You maybe correct Dez. I have seen the motor about a few times and its very tidy, lowered, alloys, big brakes so maybe the same under the bonnet. The fact my motor is 353 kg heavier than his may also play a small part! Dont worry Siggy I still love you, But maybe you could do with some BSR power

    ideal excuse to invoke extra power and then go and kick his derrier
