First things first... the E55 is one bad ass car!
I was driving briskly down a quiet street last night and I see a car ahead of me goin about the same speed. I sped up a little and could see that it was a mercedes... got a little closer and saw two chrome exhaust tips... I immediately thought it was probably an E55. The light ahead turns red and I pull up next to him and confirmed it was an E55. Both of us had tinted windows so I couldn't see the driver but I figured he'd probably go for it on green so I was ready. I try to avoid racing but c'mon... it's a e55...
Light turns green... some stupid guy runs the red light so we both hesitate at the light... I hear his tires let out a little screech so I launch it. It was a pretty weak launch but I manage to pull about a car length on him... shift to second and I'm still ahead but I know he's gonna come flyin by any second now... shift to third with him at my door panel and we both shut it down because of a red light ahead.
We both roll down our window and I see it's a guy in his mid-young 30's... he compliments me on my car and how quick it was but I let him know that his car was faaarrr superior than mine. We waved and went our separate ways. Definitely a cool guy. This little sprint definitely made me feel good about my little wrx... I know that those e55's are beasts from a roll. He would have ate me up if we kept on going any faster but that was fast enough for the streets. I guess Cobb stage2 is not so bad after all... but i could still use an upgrade
