    How do you drive?

    Just curious at what is everyone driving habits here?

    Do you tend to thrash your car to bits (especially the turbo and sri owners) or do you just poodle along with traffic?

    I drive a bit hard i suppose but only having a 1.4 i suppose i have to to get anywere.Plus i think my car likes all the 16 valves to be used as it never misses a beat.

    Optimax and Redex make it all the better though.

    I should have put this in my first post :roll:

    I have not been caught for speeding (yet) touch wood (me own head). But have been sworn at by a taxi driver in a people carrier on the M3 for beating him in a race . This guy actually followed me off the motorway, stopped next to me, as I was at a set of lights, called me a ****** and sped off to join the motorway again lol

    Sore loser! :P

    Hello,

    As a new driver... I'm still influenced by my instructor and I keep the speedo hand bellow the limit, and drive around sensibly... on the motorway... i just go with the flow... so many drivers... they must know something more than I do
    I've been caught twice by bloody track drivers though... and found my self turning right to the third lane pushing the car behind me on the breaks...
    Didn't have a change though... how do they manage to turn before they signal!?! b@st@rds!

    Ciao,
    Kakourdos

    If the roads are clear and its safe to do so I'll stick my foot down, only bother with dual carriageways/motorways, always stick to the limits around town, so many police camera vans my way its impossible to even consider it.

    depends on my mood. If im tired, then ill just pootle along, but if im ina good mood and 'awake', then ill drive fast. I tend not to thrash it constantly, i kinda prefer just to cruise along at about 90 odd.
