I ran into one of those land yatchs.

I "think" I instigated by pressing him to go faster into a turn. He puched it and speeds started to increase in this pretty long sweeping turn, you know, the ones to get on a highway. This is 360 degree turn with a 30 yard radius I would say, so it is tight.

I was surprised to see how the BMW sat. No body roll – at least I could not tell. I was trailing it. As speeds climbed my tires starting to scream (getting bald) and the guy in the bimmer was doing just fine.

We are almost out of the corner and I am 3/4 into 3rd and just nail it, so does he. I actually started to reel him in, quickly shifted to fourth and that was it. We shut down at around 110. I prolly made up 3 CL from the time I nailed it to the time we left off.

I was very surprised. I was waiting for the can of whoop a$$ to be opened on me, but I was fine :D . Exhanged peace signs and went our ways.

I guess these things are way to heavy + it had some pretty "lippy" rims. NICE CAR though! Very nice.

Most people think of BMWs as "luxury cars.... they are really sports sedans in every sense of the word that happen to have very nice interior features! ;) Even the sh!ttiest BMW handles like a champ!

Indeed they do. I took my uncle's 740iL w/ sport package (various ///M goodies) on some canyon runs and it was a blast! Very impressive for a 2+ ton car. It's no modified WRX...but the overall driving quality is incredible. BMW just knows what they're doing like few other car companies. :)

I think its with alot of luxury and other "high performance" cars... They accelerate when they need to and handle with pristine ease.... but there is nothing like getting thrown back in your seat at 23 psi and just feelin like your an inch from breakin apart.

If I had the money, a 540i 6spd or G35c would def. be my next car. That would be one of the hardest decisions I would ever have to make, lol
