    Not exactly a kill but oh so satisfying

    I was turning left from a light with a late model BMW 750i in front of me. The guy was in his 50s in a business suit. I started to slowly pass him and he nailed it (not going to let that lowly Subaru around ME ). I stupidly did the same (I rarely play these games). It was a battle between the snob and the slob. There was an on ramp ahead of us that we both wanted to get on - maybe 400 yards away.

    Much to my enjoyment I was able to walk past him and make it to the onramp with room to spare. I was able to handle the onramp at a good clip and left him a bit behind (love those Faulkens!). I merged in front of another car by a comfortable margin the 750 cut in front of that car to get behind me. He seemed really annoyed being beaten by a Subaru. I made my point and stopped it there. I then get the sauerkraut flyby.

    my boss has a 2001 740il, and he used to talk so much crap about my car until one day we met up at a stoplight, the road was barren...and we decided to have a friendly stoplight race. He told me he was putting his car into 'sport' mode.....light turns green and without even launching I take him my 3 or 4 carlengths and hold it until about 115. Ever since that day, when the topic of me beating him comes up, he asked for a rematch, one exit to another on the turnpike

    Your stage 2 so the 750i is an easy kill. If it's an "L" it's even easier. The "i" does 0-60 in 5.4 and the qt at 13.9. Those boats have a 4.8L V8 and put down 360hp.
