Im now seriously embarrassed!! I was coming home from bowling and was following a metro doing about 25 in a 60, he eventually pulled over and let me by, as soon as I passed he put on his full beam and tailgated me, I kept to the limit as it quite a dangerous road, but as soon a I got to a long straight down hill bit, I thought I'd give him a taste of turbo! but he had a run up, came along side me, I floored it in 4th and stayed along side him up till about 65, god knows how he kept up!!! it was a 1.0 for god sake. I then I thought I'd better not go any faster as its quite built up so I gave up a let him pass. so a 1.0 austin metro beat an SRi Turbo, the shame.
Worse of all, my mates who know nothing about cars thought it was extremely funny that a metro beat me, as Im always goin on about how fast my car is! Im never gonna live this down.
