the original golf gti could outpace a ferrari 248 across the welsh mountains AND I know for a fact the a '06 audi a4 avant s-line 2.0tdi170 can keep with a Cayman S (driven by an ex-BTCC driver) across the infamous moffat-edinburgh 'beeftub' road..... not that I was in the audi

Hell my polo can shuffle along behind a miata once its up to sixty! 50-70 in top it destroys them (with half the bhp)

feeding back to euro emissions - at work we class them as Rest of the world emissions as everywhere bar the US we sell Euro4 or Euro5 spec engines. the US? a mapping change and barely noticeable one at that!

good things come to those who wait, sh*t turns up pretty much instantly
