Re: has anyone maxed out their 166
OK if you can get a long stretch of road to go that fast!
I actually wound my t/s up to an indicated 130 mph once,but
according to my sat.nav the speedo was wildly optimistic,I was
actually doing 118 mph!
I think all this maximum speed stuff is pretty academic,manufacturers
use it to sell cars,I think general driveability is more important.
I have to be honest(and it surprises me to say),that both of my
twin sparks have been much nicerr cars to drive than the v6s',but to
put this in context I use a lot of pretty poor rural B roads and the
handling is much sharper on the T/S.
Something else that is very surprising,I could get 34mpg. cruising on
the m/way in my 3.0 and 29mpg out of my 5spd t/s and 31 mpg out
of my current 6spd.t/s!(down to the longer gearing)
So very much horses for courses if you do a lot of m/way driving over
long distances v6 is the one,or if you want something nippy and
more useable over the twisty stuff t/s is just fine.
