I was crusing to work yesterday doing about 90 when I see in the mirror a VW hatchback flying up on me at about 105-110. He flys up on my right and passes me then slows down. I figured he was getting a better look but he then starts to egg me on by flooring it and slowing down several times. I can tell the car has work done to it but I couldn't believe the guy was serious. After the 5th or so time I floor it up to about 120 or so and look at this spec in my mirror. I get off the gas and about 10 seconds pass before he does his flyby :) He slows back down and eggs me on again so this time I give him a head start and notice he is spraying so I floor it and shutdown again at 120 with him being a spec in mirror.:fawkdance After that he wouldn't pass me again until I turned off 20 miles down the road.:turbonaug

ahh yes the arrogance of the kraut crowd. i love hearing about any of them getting shut down. and what a total fool this guy must have been. he thinks his 50 shot is going to own.

Aye, I'll be in Munich, Germany on Sunday. Will be renting a Bimmer to take out on the autobahn and then will begin my 5 hour drive through the Austrian Alps to the Carinthian Province in southern Austria.



Nothing like driving on impeccable roads with these type of views.

Looking forward to my first Wiener Schnitzel washed down with a nice local Villacher Bier once I'm there :gears:

I don't know what's going on with these VW guys. Every single one I run into these day has a mega chip on their shoulder.

Is there some "super" VW with 400 horsepower whose reputation these guys are trying to use?

Nah, probably thought it was a Cavalier. I get that from alot of the WRX guys. Maybe its just me but I can't see the resemblance but then again I'm not the one looking at the rear as the Goat goes by.
