Not just Winter tyres but non RFT Winter tyres. I didn't stand a chance.

I mullered the milk float on Summer rubber just afterwards though.

Lets face it guys.

Now sit down......all of you.

These days will happen, not every day mind you, but they WILL happen. When........now, *deep breaths*......you will get a bit of competition.....albeit because of you having TOO much power and poofy tyres.

I know I know........its hard, almost surreal to imagine......but there are other things on earth that move forwards and turn corners.


Now obviously, they are not going to deccimate you on the Nurburgring, but you will......get passed, occasionally.


I mean, I saw a 335d parked the other day, and a cyclist.......YES a fackin cyclist passed it. Its ok though because the 335d caught him at 100 mph.

IMO, and just IMO of course the running order for speed is as follows:

1. Light
2. Sound
3. A comet (any)
4. Clio (only mine)
5. Veyron
6. 335d (remapped)
7. 335d (not remapped)
8. 335d (in the wet)
9. 335d (in the wet on summer tyres)
10. A cheetah
11. Roadrunner *meep meep*
12. Everything else that has done or will ever move, including particulates from the Big Bang.
I think you forgot about planes/jets coming in at No. 2 J

I was completely in shock that a '1.8T' with less horse power and approx 8 years difference in age had me up to 60mph. However I was relieved that he literally was going backwards after 70 mph. I know that my diesel will never be the fastest car in the world but it was all about the competition I was being faced with at the time.

The S3 8L was the one I that I loved the most (at the time of ownership) - but now looking at the results of the RS3 v M1 fight with great interest.

I can see another swap on the cards within the next year.
Someone seems to have got things right on their car front!

I think you would have liked the 8L S3 the most as it set the benchmark for you whereas the others have to be considerably better to improve on that expectation. However I might be wrong!

Reading about the RS3 in Top Gear mag earlier today, Audi seem to have thought about the front design but just couldnt be bothered improving the rear. Also it looks like any other A3 sportback from the side!
If the figures stack up I would have the M1 ......ooops.... 1 series M!
