    my encounter with a old pipe smokin bas*ard

    was near heathrow, on the way to work and saw a gap on the right so i carried on following it to find myself at the front of the traffic lights at a roundabout.

    on my left was a old guy smokin his pipe and giving me all sorts of looks, he was driving a 2.0 rover oldish ones, not sure what though dont know much about them cars.

    anyway i thought i would fly by but .......he slaughtered me ops: ops:

    i got of at the same time as him and took it to 5000 rpm in first and second reaching 50 ish but he was clearly ahead.

    well embarassing

    Sounds to me like he reeled you in from the get go, knowing that he'll put you to shame

    If you pay a well known company to do it and its never been done before then yeah! But if you have a mate with a garage and the knowledge isnt too bad for what you get.

    An example I asked a well known vaux tuning company to put a V6 in my mk4 with a 6 speed box and appropriate coilover suspension to go with it, price I got back was over 10k! thats without 4 wheel drive and the V6 was standard!
