Default Those 2.8 V6t's are a bit nice.

Ok, not of any great interest, but I just had to say something about these lovely sounding beastly engines.

I had a fast response police unit pass me (from 2 cars behind) yesterday with just the blues and none of the twos on... it was a Vauxhall Vectra with the same 2.8t in as the aeros... they sound bloomin gorgeous...

The traffic was travelling at a constant 50mph, and the car pulled out, and i kid you not, this thing must have got, in 2 car lengths, up to well over 70 - and the v6 burble (at full chat) with some turbo howl, just wonderful sounding - only problem is I now want to find, from nowhere the ~30k to get a 9-3 aero with the engine option.

:Sigh: well i can dream can't I?

Hmm, or i could try getting the engine to fit in my ng?!

That was all, nothing much to see here...
