Playing Catch-up with a Golf GTI

Golf GTI drivers tend to be slow drivers. I don't know why, but most of those whom I meet up with on the road can really be slow coaches.
But every so often, I meet up with a couple of Golf GTI drivers who really push their cars. When that happens, guess who wins the pissing competition? The Golf GTI drivers, of course.
The Golf GTI is a far better car than the Ford Focus S2.0. Although it doesn't really leave the Focus behind, given enough road, the distance between the Golf GTI going flat out and the Focus S2.0 desperately trying to keep up can really start to stretch out.
Still, on Malaysian roads where people seem to think that the fast lane is actually the slow lane, the Golf GTI's power can't really be used to its full potential. So, while the Focus S2.0 can't really out run the Golf GTI, it can keep up surprisingly easily.
After all, you can count on some silly slow driver hogging the fast lane to slow the Golf GTI down from its flying sprint.
Of course, it would be nice to have that kind of power in the Focus S2.0. Alas, that would cost money, money, money, which I don't have currently.
