An aggressive passing maneuver.

Verb.

To pass in an an aggressive yet jerk-free manner, while meeting the following stipulations:

Must have at least a 30km/h speed difference between your golf/jetta and the 'opposing vehicle' (hereby known as the 'opposed').

Must accelerate to the passing speed IN YOUR OWN LANE. this ensures maximum euro-flair on the aptly named "flare".

The "flare" is one of the most important aspects of the euro pass. by speeding up to this high speed, you will be closing the gap between yourself and the opposed. DONT LET UP! this is the most important part of the maneuver. at some point during this mad acceleration dash, the opposed will have checked their rearview and noticed that you're about to ram them. while they're bracing for impact (you'll generally see things flying around their cabin, possible ducking motions), you start the "flare". Adapted from airplane terminology, you want to smoothly but aggressively apply pressure to the control stalk (usually a steering wheel) so as to load up the right side of the suspension (unless you're doing a reverse euro pass, which would be to the right) in a smooth and linear manner so as to maintain maximum control over your euro ride. continue to accelerate through the maneuver, and cancel the maneuver once you've safely reached the other lane. Your opposed will be both breathing a heavy sigh of relief, as well as possibly yelling some kind of euro-bashing obscenity.

**job well done**

Ideally, the euro pass maneuver is started with about a 1000' seperation from the opposed, with the "flare" being started, with the minimum speed difference in effect, at about 15-20 feet behind the opposed.
"Hold on to something! we're gonna reverse europass that truck thats been hogging the left lane for the past 5 miles!"

"UHOH! I THINK THAT JETTA IS GOING TO RAM ME! ...oh phew, he was just doing a euro pass maneuver. stupid eurotrash."
