YES!! i was in front of a nova the other day (not for very long, but long enough to notice..) it was done up patheticly, stupid exhaust (sounded worse than a scooter) and i dunno how many subs in the back, but at every bass beat the headlights went out virtually completley.. it was very, very annoying and distracting having that behind you.. i just put my foot down, and he couldnt keep up.. poxy chavs.. should be shot

I'll probably just get a used car for around $6,000-$8,000 that will last a few years.. getting a car with a highend engine seems so pointless.. i'd rather get a car with better miles to the gallon than horse power..
agreed totally.. i intend to upgrade my sound system a bit, just to make the metal sound a bit better, but im not gonna chav it up.. i like my boot space (i go scuba diving and fishing - both need alot of boot space). im not going to upgrade the stereo, the peugeot standard one works fine.. i probably will upgrade the speakers, and only those as far as sound goes..
i went for a diesel, i get a huge amount of MPG out of it.. drove 500 miles, and used up £30 worth of fuel the other week, thats the reason why i bought it, its still relativley fast, and yet is very fuel efficient.. i drive alot, so efficiency is impoartant to me..
