I had a burn up with a silver S3 in St Kilda tonight. Just wondering whether the owner drops into this forum at all.

In case anyone is wondering, I was coming back from my sister's place in St Kilda when this Audi with xenon lights pulled up behind me. I thought, prolly a 2.0 litre fwd or some such. Didn't give him much thought. But, as is my practice, I thought I'll just stay a little bit in front just in case he wants to play.

So much for that theory. By the time I realised he was gunning it, it was too late. I made up a little ground at the top in first, but it wasn't enough. I made a little more ground up at the top of second, but again, it was too late. As he ran out of road I got passed, and then jumped on the brakes. And then he jumped on the brakes after me. By that stage I was thinking. "HOLY MOLY BATMAN, he's going to rear end the car in front." But no, he pulled up in plenty of time. Those S3 brakes are substantially better than mine.

I pulled up next to him, gave him the big thumbs up and peeled off right.

When I got home, I recounted my shame and embarrassment to my neighbour Sam, who said it sounded like a mate of his. The car is apparently chipped. It would want to be. My sister's S3 is nowhere near that quick.

Oh the pain..., the pain...

Next time buddy, next time.:D :roll:

Hehe. Been through that. I came very close to buying some, some time ago, but decided not to when I found out how heavy they are. Instead I thought I'd hang out for some like yours.

As my dad has always said, do it once, and do it properly.:mrgreen:

Matt,

I thought this thread was about the encounter we had the other day ;)
