    Father: 2004 Volkswagen Golf 2.0 TDI 140cv Sportline DSG in red
    Very good suspension setup and the engine keeps pushing until 4000rpm

    Mother: 2003 Renault Scenic 1.9 DCI 120cv Privilege in grey
    This is what I actually drive. Very confy and espacious, but the tall center of gravity and lack of independent suspension and sway bar in the rear makes it hard to do fast turns.

    The torquecurve seems like taken from a commercial van, having a max torque of 300N/m. Redline is at 4000rpm, the turbo starts pushing at 1800rpm, maximun power (120cv) at 2750rpm and turbo nearly disconnects at 3000rpm, so at 4000rpm you only get 82cv. Only way to drive it sportly is to take advantage of the very short final drive ratio and keep the engine between 2000 and 3000rpm

    Transsmision is a 6-speed manual with a very low gear ratio. Good point is that al the gears are spaced at exactly 25kmh. Shifting at 3000rpm you change of gear a these speeds:
    Shift to 3rd at 50kmh, 4th at 73kmh, 5th at 100kmh, and 6th at 126kmh

    But if you know how to handle it, it can be a very fun car to drive :)

    My mum: Red 2010 Volvo V60 D5 SE Lux, nickname "Red 5"
    My Dad: "Deceptive Black" 2013 Jaguar XF 3L V6 SC, Nickname "Crook 1"

    NB: Its Deceptive black because it changes its colour between Deep Purple, Deep Blue and Black it really changes on the way you look at it and also the nickname reflects its "bad guy" persona, anyone who owns a Jaguar XF is a mob boss, the Kingpin drive a Jaguar XJ LWB thats how it goes with all bad guys!
