A co worker of mine drives a 330ci and although on paper the 2 cars seem pretty similiar his car seems so much faster than mine although we never ran side by side. I did a search and it seems that the bmw gets the early jump and maintains 1-2 car lead up to about 80 mph, but this is what an e-shift is300. Is the stick any different? What could I do to beat the bmw and regain braggin rights w/o going forced induction? thanks.
