Today i was suprised by a Golf GTD.
Earlier on today i was sat waiting for the traffic lights to change on Chester Rd heading towards Manchester UTD's football ground just minding my own business.
When a dark blue Golf GTD stopped besides & goaded me to use, shall we say all what i had.
Anyway i knew what was about to happend, so i held my finger down for two seconds on the ASR/VDC button untill i got the confirmation beep to tell me both are now disabled.
I felt confident in the heavy beast that the Alfa Brera is, so the next thing you know lights changed to amber.
We're both off the mark 1st, kneck & kneck 2nd, kneck & kneck, change up to 3rd now at 70mph i started to only get a slight advantage, but with respect he had to start braking due to a little white van on the inside lane which he was in.
The point of this thread is even though the Golf only has 181bhp but 280lb ft of torque.
It seems torque can have better improvements over Bhp
And more to the point modern day diesel engines are getting really nippy
