    Hey guys, this isnt a post trying to bait anyone before i start. ;)

    Work mate mentioned today that a leon cupra (black i think) tried it on with him in his left hooker old skool bmw 320 in the stafford area during the weekend. Sad to say the leaon was left for dead.
    Anyone one here wont to own up?

    By the way this 320 is the italian version of an m3 with a few tweaks under the bonnet. goes pretty well. [B)]

    cheers

    I doubt it, the 320 would have to been running a blower of some sort or a serious nitrous shot.The E30 320i was nice and smooth but slow, 95 kw against 134 kw. No chance, unless the cupra was tied to an anchor.

    pretty respectable for a 320, would of been close he certainly wouldnt have left it standing, and thats if his is in top notch condition, given its age i would say its perf. figures will be down ever so
