Unexpected BMW encounter

I was on my way to a friend's house to show off my new to me GTO to a friend. I was making a left turn and I have what you call a lead foot, so once I make the corner in second gear going about 45mph I notice lights in my rear and then he changes lanes. I let off the gas so I can see who I'm up against until I see the front of his car pass my passenger window. I put the pedal to the metal and slowly start pulling away until his headlights are around my rear tires. We raced to about 80mph until we hit the next stop light and I was ready to do another one, but he rolled down his window and wanted to talk.

He told me his BMW was a 2012 335 D that has about 325 stock and that he had installed a chip that gave him an additional 100hp. I don't know about any chip adding that much hp but his car put up a good fight.

I also raced a mustang but I beat it so bad I didn't think he was racing so I let off the gas and he passed me. I wonder if he thinks he won...

the "D" is a turbo diesal motor so they make a lot of torque. let the mustang think he won, when he finds you again and talks smack.. just lay down the hammer on him and leave him in the dust to feel embarrassed.
