I was out tonite just drivin around enjoying the sound of my new flowmaster exhaust and APS intake (thanks Joe!). I was on route 1 and I caught a red light. As I waited a few cars piled up behind me. The light turned green and I hit it decently hard (no real launch, but I got on it pretty nice once I got moving). I pulled away from traffic and was cruisin at about 60 when I see a set of Xenon headlights moving up on me fast. I new it was a BMW from the rather distinctive headlights. The kid rolls up next to me in a silver 330Ci and looks over at me with that look in his eye (we all know what look I'm talking about). With no warning, he gets on it and takes off. I downshift into third and hit it, but by the time I shifted, he was already ~2 cars ahead and pulling away. By the time I ran out 3rd he was barely 1 car ahead of me. by the time I hit 110 we were even and I was pulling past him. Then, he suddenly braked and dropped back fast... I didn't know why, but I figured there was a good reason so I did the same. Suddenly a State Trooper comes flying down a ramp onto the highway with lights flashing, and speeds off. At the next light we caught he yells over that he saw the lights flashing through the trees. I thanked him. Then he said 'wow, that things is fast... you had me for sure!' I gave a sly smile and complimented him on the beauty of his car. We drove down the road for another 2 miles or so side by side cruisin at 60 until I exited and we exchanged thumbs up! Cool guy. Close call. Lotsa fun whooping on Bimmers!
I need a new turbo... then I'm going M3 hunting!
