    Hehe...so thats what it feels like

    I was referring to the kick up the backside from the GSi when the turbo kicked in

    The test drive went good, apart from the horrible weather, so cannot really see what the GSi can really do :roll: . I did three circuits from one roundabout down a 50mph dual carriageway and doubled back at the next one. The first time round, I did not really notice much power really, so asked the salesman dude, what am I doing wrong? he said I was driving the GSi too calmly (it aint my car lol). Apparently, I did not give the turbo enough time to wind up (first time turbo driver lol) ops: . Second time was different, through the gears and gave it some welly, hit 3000 rpm and received a kick up the backside funny feeling, but the power! . Now I see why turbo owners love their motors so much hehe. I also noticed that they not really improved on the gear change as it is still a little notchy through 1st and 2nd. It was fun up til the point where he said we have to go back to the office now

    Got back to the office and I signed on the dotted line.......say hello to the newest GSi owner on AS and goodbye to my social life :roll:
