bmw 335i beat me!!!

ok . i'm at a stop light and a black , very stock looking, bmw 335i 4 door with dark tinted windows pulls up beside me and rolls about a 1/2 car length in front of me. with me not paying him no mind the light turns green and he punches it. caught me by surprise but i punched it as well. at the end of the race, 105 in a 45, he was a 1/2 car length ahead. he never pulled on me but hey i didn't pass him either. i was very impressed. so we hit traffic and i pulled in behind him and he waves and gives me the thumbs up out his window. very nice race but damn was i depressed....... i know i haven't done much to me 06 a4, tuned, intake, and exhuast. but i thought it was going to be an easy kill. was i wrong, never under estimate the unknown. who knows what he had done to the car. i did noticed dual exhuast which is not not stock. wish i could of stopped and talked with him but i just waved goodbye.

105 in a 45. Hmm; wonder if the Miami heat will have an eye open for a red GTO...
As Brett Favre discovered, it isn't a good idea to put too much info on the internet. The whole world is watching. (Just sayin')

Aren't they I6 TT?

I raced one from a dig and he got me off the line and though 2nd. I cought up in 3rd and passed in 4th.

I was shocked at how quick they are. Technology is getting good and the GTO is getting old, might be time for something fresh :-)

Those BMW's are no joke. They are turbo charged and make something like 340 hp.

I had a kid in a 540i pick on me from a red light. I didn't expect him to race me but I wanted to take him, and apparently he was thinking the same thing. Both of us kind of rolled on it and ended up full throttle by the time we were through the intersection. Thankfully, when we started, the nose of his car was at my window, and it stayed there the whole time. We both let up around 65-70 mph.

I wonder what would have happened it we'd both stomped on it from the light. I'd like to think I would've pulled on him, but I'm not very confidant.

I'm an automatic and all I've done is put in a K&N intake.

I know my car can take the 335i. They always get me out of the hole, but my 2nd and 3rd gears are just too much for them....
