Thumbs up Meet with a Seat Leon Cupra 1.8T in the Highway!

I was returning from the beach, 100 Km fromt he city (60Miles) with all the traffic int he road, but going fast...I saw this car next to me( iwas going arround 80 MPH) engaged to third made some rev, made some nioise with my BOV to let him...hey!! here is a nice 4 banger 325is turbo 4000 $ vs your nice ride of 25 or so...let's play..

So I accelerated, started to pass him...and soonely he was behind me, we went up to 100 MPH..passing all the cars to get more speed...I did very good moves in the traffic, some of those moves he couldn't do due the heavy and slow traffic...then I hited like 120 MPH for a while...soonely I saw in my rear mirror this Red Seat behind me...like saying ok, let's play now have more space...

Ok, I accelrated and leave him awya again, but most due the traffic...but this guy was seriously trying to beat me anyways,.....the traffic came more heavy and we had to down the speed... for about 10 mins we were racing...was a nice run...I can't say I won cuz it wasn't a real race or so...just to say that those Coupras turbos are fasta as hell, maybe like the SRT-4 , maybe a bit slower...but fast!

Oh, btw I didn't trn up my boot...I raced him just with 6 PSI
