    It was only a 2.7 boxster not a boxter s....

    not bad for a diesel allthough my last revod 20vt cupra did just have the beating of a std boxster..

    The guy in the boxser was really trying round the roundabaout but to be fair it was damp and i had four brand new continental sportcontact2's on..:)

    Almost forgot I went working the other day with a BMW driver..an estate agent who had done many track days corporate and came to my house in a 3 series coupe...there were three of us and not wanting to be squished I suggested I took my car he agreed..and was extremely impressed asking all about the engine....etc

    Mr Sheerin, where's your sig gone??????

    i could always spot your posts by the amount of red on a page!!!!!


    I bought a diesel last year based on their performance, (and phenomenal economy) when i got trounced by a Saab 9-5 3.0d. I was in my Mondeo 2.5 24v V6. thought i'd show him what 6 cylinders could do :doh: couldn't even keep up, let alone beat it :thumbd:

    A mate bought a 9-5 3.0V6 TiD earlier this year. I found that the trick to overtaking him is to wait until his car's back at the garage again (6 times now in 3 months) for an intermittent loss of power and then nip past while he's shouting at the service manager.

    When it works, though, great car :thumbup:

    It wasnt a thrashing just a slow creeping....and not till 3 figs but a creeping closer to me nonetheless..allthough I actually gained round a roundabout..:)
    but as I said damp road and all new tyres helped me..:)
