Doubt it; even in a 2L twinny you need to change down a gear to keep up with an aggressively driven Tdi

Spot on!

Who really cares about Passat ****s (oh it rhymes )? There will always be someone on the road quicker than you and the roads are not race tracks so just let him pass.....

Certainly do NOT do what the others are saying here about the brake pedal thing....it is a recepie for disaster - quickest way to road rage.

I once antaganised a driver in a Golf TDi indirectly and he tried to ram me off the road then pulled in front of me to block me in and two butch guys run over before I slammed it into reverse and drove off . Scary stuff - all on an A road too. Just remember its not uncommon for these nutters to have either nicked the cars and have no insurance and they could do all sorts to you and then **** off. BEWARE

that story about the golf is nuts lol!

Pete as has been said just hang back and hell overtake you or get a northern reg car an the guards do nothing when they catch ya

Im not a tailgater but I do tend to hang about behind faster cars esp if theyre doin in around a ton, i stay 100-150yrds behind them then ill see the flash on their car an drop teh anchor before i get flashed too
