Right i was driving through bolton the other day with the mrs in the passenger seat and these chavs pulled up next to me at the lights in this banged up old golf and started reving!
Me being myself i just thought wat a twat lol wen the lights changed to green i shot off and then he screamed past me as i saw 1.6 on his boot and i drive a 1.2 and felt like the biggest twat ever!

Has anyone had this happen to them and how did you deal with it? :(

best way is to just ignore them cos knowing how the chav's drive up here in Aberdeen - you'll no doubt see them again in a few weeks with their car smashed into a lamp post or something :laugh:

Just rev up, look at them then look forward, when the lights change pull away normally. Always makes me laugh.

LOL well some BMW pulled up next to me when i had a bird in the car, turns out he was in a 318, he's revving up so i think fuk it, may aswell have a bash, he was that interested in laughing with his mates, he missed the lights go green and i done him! Although he did catch me up and overtake me, was still hillarious! :D:D:D

Drop a 1.6 or let in it. Not much else you can do really, depending how much you are willing to spend though ask deathscythe

For 2k and only keeping the car two years, your probably better off going for a 1.6. With your age and insurance it would be cheaper and easier.

funniest one ive had was a guy in a tarted up polo thought my dads bmw was a 316 sayin cheap mans car out the window and that, he booted it off the lights, my dad let him go a bit then sunk the shoe. My dads car was a 3.0 V6 Turbo Diesel, So safe to say mr polo got wasted. He didnt even look at us at the next set of lights.
