OK before you go of at me for doing this.......................it was 6am no one was around at the time :ph34r:

I was on my way back from london on the A2 i was doing about 70-80 and i pull up on a RS Cosworth at this time im (think no dont do it he will kill the IS) well as it go,s i went for it and he new i wantted to play so he went for it thinking he could ***** all over the IS (i was thinking he would as well) but you still have to give it all you got so i did. so now we are doing about 90-95 and he starts to give it all he has got and he starts to pull abit on me.....so i drop the IS in to 5th and as soon as i did this im right with him and we was like this for about 8miles, but he had to give up when he got to 100+ as he was leting of a lot of Smoke, and when i went pass him he had a big :D on his face and put his thumb up to...................(as if to say nice one mate)...........

Fill free to slate me if you like :tomato:

I think the IS can hold its own at the top end :winky:

are you sure the smoke wasn't his engine blowing up?

yea i think he did mate...........and no bazz it was NO replica by the way he pulled away to start with..........but dont forget he pulled away just at the right time for the IS to say with him ie 80+ as my understanding is the best speed for the IS to pull at as it can keep up with most cars pulling at this speed :winky:

Agree the IS is good at the top end, but out running a Cosworth - no way. His car must have been knackered already, hence the blow up/smoke etc.

Glad the Lex came out smelling of Roses though!

i did not say i outrun it............you need to go back and look over the post's.........all i said was i stayed with him ;) i think he was in and old pig, i have seen pete's son's cose, and there would have been no way to keep up with that one but you have to understand not all cose are the same :winky: and as this one was old i went for it :lol:

i went up against a sierra cossy once,,  was pretty close, me JUST ahead and that was in the 300 with the funny gas squirting...

I get that same affect in my car ............... "that funny gas squirting" , only it's not my car that makes the squirts ! :whistling:

I bet most people on here have had their toe down at some point, have to admit I go out and put my foot down when I'm stressed, the noise helps me unwind :) Usually stay around a ton on the speedo, which is about 91 according to the Origin, occasionally take her up higher though when I've been fiddling with bits to see if shes improved at all ;)

Just wait til you've got your toys on pal, then you'll be having even more fun!!

The IS is much better at motorway speeds than it is at the low end though, and can be lots of fun on the motorway, I used to love the looks on peoples faces when I'd be keeping up with them, or overtaking them, it was always a look of shock :)

Here i am :) ......Oh dear what can i say :blink:

1) It was proly a rep.

2) The driver obviously had nothing between his legs.

3)A genuine cossie would KILL an IS 200/300 turboed/nozzed/SC'd any day of the week.

4)Where shall we meet and i'll show you what a proper cossie can do :D :D

Not sure if the IS will keep up with a Cossie but I had a race with an X5 last week (don't know what engine was in it) but I p'd all over it from a 30 zone into a bypass, into second and then throught the gears and he could not catch me at all! How's that then - I thought the X5 was pdq!
