On the way home from work tonight I saw a nice looking graphite 330 series bimmer get on the highway rather "briskly" ahead of me. I could tell he had some sort of exhaust and various stickers. The only one I could make out was "Eurospeed." Traffic was somewhat heavy so I kind of lurked behind him for ahwile until the left lane cleared. When it did, I came in beside him and gave him a little rev to let him know I was there. He quickly fell in beside me as we cruised in the left lane behind some traffic.
After awhile the traffic cleared and there was no-one in front of me in the left lane. I threw it in third and he proceeded to try and follow as I put a couple buslengths on him. I shut down at 120 or so and got in the right lane. He eventually came up to my left and I gave him a thumbs up. He kinda threw his arms up like "WTF just happened?"
This time I let him have a pretty good jump as he nailed it. I waited for him to get several car lengths before I downshifted. Same story as before, with me passing him up at the top of 4th
Although it wasnt fast, I love 3 series' and almost got one instead of the WRX. Hell, even now I sometimes think about getting one and not messing around with modifying my car. Then the addiction gets to me and I think better of it.
