How do we all like to drive, are you sensable all the time, are you nuts behind the wheel. Or are you an outright loony.

perhaps you feel the need to release some pent up aggression and go a bit crazy from time to time.

perhaps we can get a good topic going here as i know some might not agree with other's driving styles.

I like to ride pushbikes lol.

When im not in a rush or im just out for a casual drive i will drive calmly and change gear so early to save petrol and stay safe. When im tryin to get there then and there ill go rather quick,racing line,cool gear changes,blipping throttle on the way down and all that hehee. Speeds on the motorway never below 80MPH and not much more than 115MPH

Im a good driver, BTW when i crashed i was in cool calm petrol saving mode

Mine varies.

The reason I drive fast is because I like driving fast, not because Im in a rush to get everywhere, meaning there is a time and a place.

Going to and from work, and driving round town, im generally very sidate, theres no point rushing round using fuel and risking your license, car, health, and other road users for the sake of 1 car length at the next set of lights :rolleyes:

When conditions do allow though, I like to streach the cars legs, though, with passengers, I never give it 10/10ths due to the obvious unpredictability of any situation smile

i have corrected the above statement for you stuymacWinsel
i am sure you meant to say that

normally i personally drive to and from work (when its on) senisbly but night time and open roads i pen it up a bit

the thing is tho the stupid saxo sounds like its doing the speed record at 30mph, so although you think i am going nuts, i doubt very much i am going as fast as you think i am

I tend to take it easy and save as much petrol as possible for the times when a chav in a VTR pulls up next to me at the lights thinking hes the dogs gonad's in an unbeatable car raftl

Only really put it in high boost if there isn't any traffic and if its dry, dont think i ever boot it in the wet thumbsup

Around my local town its hard to open throttle as you got drunken idiots falling into your car as your driving from clubs. I usually do 20/25mph around the usual cruising laps.

On the motorway i usually open up the car to around 80mph, then give it a shot and give it a nice open up. Ive pushed the car very far once going down hill at around 3am hit around 140mph on the GPS, i was fairly scared when i heard a loud whining noise!!!!

But generally, i just cruise. I like to take in the scenery and listen to my music and my phat bass :-D
