He thought he would dust a TDI? /images/graemlins/eek.gif Just imagine if the TDI that he ran into had been chipped /images/graemlins/smirk.gif

oh man that was almost not worth watching (chortling) /images/graemlins/grin.gif...I punched it up at lunch getting onto I-40 and felt almost godlike for a moment (glazes over at the possibilities for destruction of his slush fund now that he has gone over to the Dark Side...) /images/graemlins/smile.gif

yeah and the TDI even had a really crappy shift or two - lost a second or more with that shift...

oh all I gotta say is:
how many horses can you make that Insite? can it be chipped? can you put bigger injectors?

/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

can it be made even more fun to drive?

for me:
Can I fit in it? NO

Gotta love a thorough spanking. Wait until he creams his first GT Mustang going through the mountains on the Interstate. Even the muscle cars don't have much oomph at highway speeds and the TDI can really shine. I am of course referring to both vehicles being stock. If the GT is chipped, has an after market blower, or both, all bets are off. Same goes for the TDI, then it would be a real spanking against a stock hotrod. /images/graemlins/grin.gif

YMMV

I pulled up next to some woman driving a Prius one time, rolled down my window and asked her what kind of mileage she gets...She said "about 50". So I says "Yeah, me too" Then smoked the tires and blew a big phat soot cloud as I sped away. /images/graemlins/cool.gif

The name "Zerin" and the word "Stock" don't ever find themselves in the same sentence.

But the phrase, "Older than Jesus" can be applied to that video clip.

Yeah looks like he didn't have to try very hard. My grandma could have beat that Insight. /images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif I do really enjoy that the TDIs have some pick up and go when you need it.

What is "zerin"?

[/ QUOTE ]

Zerin's [deep breath]twin turbo Imola Yellow Audi S4 quattro[/deep breath] was popular and his videos/articles/whatever always feature modified[fast] cars... hence "zerin and stock are not often used together in a sentence"

You should be asking how many MAFs, NV75s, relay 109s, brake light switches, broken glove box hinges, and other problems the Insight has had... /images/graemlins/eek.gif

go ahead and flame me for being the only disgruntled TDIclub member.. I deserve it....

/images/graemlins/cool.gif I believe if you put wings on a TDI, at 130 mph you could fly. Some one once said, "It isn't the destination, It is the adventure getting there." Have A Great Day!!!

Now how about a video showing both fuel up to full, and seeing which one runs out of fuel first (time lapse, thru different states). Have odo readings, fuel gauge readings and hiway signs ect.

BTW what is the range on the insight?

That thing didn't pass with any great vigor, so I'd say that it was probably stock. If it had been chipped, I think it would have took off.
