    Cool X5 Vs Contour

    The other day, as I was headed off to go mountain biking, I rolled up next to a BMW X5 at a light. I was driving my dads manual 1995 Four Contour, an nice 4 cylinder Ford car. The BMW X5 started reving its engine at me and I laughed and revved back. The light turned green and we both punched it. I took about a half car length lead off the launch and ended up losing by about 2 car lengths. This shows that the contour does not match up to the X5 . After we raced I looked over and saw it was my friend driving the X5 and we were both laughing. The X5 was techtronic automatic and as i said my contour was a four cylinder manual transmission. You have to admit it was a funny race, but I'm angry I lost, because my friend cant drive for S*** . Sorry this had nothing to do with WRXs but I thought I should share this experience

    That is kinda funny, but don't feel too bad.

    The X5 is a pretty strong SUV (sorry, SAV) especially with the 4.4L V8. A V8 X5 will smoke a lot of cars out there, especially a front wheel drive Contour. If you see an X5 out there with 4.6is written on the back, then you really better watch out, it'll do 0-60 in under 6 seconds even with its massive 20 inch wheels!

    By the way, it's Steptronic not Techtronic (just being nitpicky). Tell your friend it doesn't mean anything if he beat your 4-cyl 140hp Contour in a 282hp 4 wheel drive V8!

    It might have been different if the coutour was SVT. But yeah, X5 v8 is nothing to laugh at. That is almost the M class for their suvs.
