my 120's just covered 1000 miles so i thought it was about time i gave it some! had a race with a mates clio172. kicked my ass but not by the amount i expected, it was raining aswell so we both struggled to get traction. also on the way home had a go with another mates r19 16v. i thought he was keepin up dead easy but it wasnt till i let him infront that i relised there was nothin in it! 138bhp vs 117bhp. how can this be!

Although the owners book seems to regard 1000 miles as being 'run in', the K series engines are known to get better as they are used more.
At just over 5000 miles my ZS 120 is certainly much better than it was at 1000 miles. Now that you can start to use the revs your engine will start to loosen up and the cars performance will get better.

Just you wait till the K has bedded in properly, and then see them off. After all, how many R****t engines are fitted to caterham's and Elises?? Not many I fear!
He may have had a ton in 3rd....Hell, i wouldn't have liked to be in it with all the Seat rattles.

I guess your out numbered spot n racing :D :D :D :D :D
Really, now that does suprise me!:rolleyes:

Come on guys just take a piece of humble pie and realise that a 115 Bhp (not 120, as badged) will not stand a chance against a, what we are lead to belive is a 156 bhp Ibiza ;) :D Unless its a Elise or likewise that weights next to nothing:D

Oh, and as for "I wouldn't have liked to be in it with all the Seat rattles" I dont think so! May be before VAG owned then, but not now!

Your more likely to get them from your 25GTI, whoops sorry, MG 25, no thats not right, MG ZR, from what the motoring press have said:D

He He He

Matey, I don't drive an MG so you will never have the ability to insult me. I just think you are extremely narrow minded. I nearly bought one of those things that you drive - didn't in the end 'coz I couldn't live with the name!

Joke - Q. What do you call a group of SEATS?
A. Garden Furniture.

S&R, is it the fact that you were taunted as a kid that make you come onto forums and try to convince ppl that your MK3 golf sorry SEAT, is better than any other car on the road? or was it the fact that you though you could race a 160 and beat it, only to be brought back to earth with a BANG, when you seen it dissapear into the distance . . . .

Oh then again, i forgot, you race a SLK Kommpressor and won . . .

YEAH RIGHT

One of my friend's X's has a cupra, and it's not all that. do US all a favour, and find another forum to go and type your banter on.

Point made.
