POOOWWWWWWWEEEEERRRRRRRR!

on Sun Mar 12, 2017 8:53 am
Thinking about recent changes in our cars - Spot and Crix most recently, since knowing (online!) you guys my cars have gone - 210, 250 (upgraded to 280), 300, 420 and casting an eye at 500bhp! It strikes me that Horsepower is getting cheaper and cheaper.

So, how much more displacement and BHP are we now carrying as a group?!

I bet we've never had so much between us....

I feel I'm letting myself, and the group down, with just 174bhp ...

In my defence, it's one of the lighter cars, I use it only in London, and I have a 911 in reserve ...

That said, my next car will be much more powerful ... but no-one really needs more than 300bhp ... so 300 - 320bhp will be my goal ....

250 here, which is enough most of the time on today's congested and speed camera infested roads!

they arent slow, love the power shove in the TT

my work mate has a 350hp 1.8 TT, no idea what mods are involved as i'm not really in to all of that, but apparently its a bit mental

I would have thought squeezing 350 out of a TT would be more expensive than buying a car with 300+ in the first place

his son is a mechanic, probably a pet project, but i would imagine there were lots of upgrades to cope with that power

7.4 quoted I think ... and given it's a turbo, it feels faster than that in terms of being responsive .... it's just when you floor it, you realise (in typical turbo fashion) there isn't too much more to give ...

George puts out a measly 190BHP, but the Jaguar is better with 300BHP. Wifes car around 108BHP, Doblo 177BHP.

My total is 775BHP do I win a fiver? Razz

Don't worry FF, I went from the 230bhp Saab to a 67bhp Yaris, I think.
