tonight i was driving home from downtown and on my way, i was stopped at a light and a accelerate when the light turns green and suddenly i look in my right side-vew mirror and see a pair of headlights bookin' it and a 528i blows by me, so i step on it and catch up to him to see what's goin' on and it's this like 40 year old dude who's having a great time racing me and he's got a big goofy grin on his face and we both hit a red light and are first in line and as soon as it turns green we both step on it. he had me on the low end acceleration and then i got up to speed and he couldn't keep up with my high end acceleration. i caught up to him and then passed him and started pulling away when i hit 100 or 110. i came up on my left turn and was about 20 feet ahead of him so a started beeping to say bye and he beeped back. all i have to say is, he was pretty fu*kin' cool for an old dude! (not to offend any 40 year old is300 owners on this forum)

It makes sense that you beat him, those are more luxury then speed but that is real cool that he was like 40. TOnight i had a guy who was like 40 try to race me in his pathfinder. He got smoked big time and then continued to flash his high beams at me for a good mile. Gotta love the older guys with some spunk still left in them.

I know someone who just bought a 530i, and it's got 225hp. I believe the 528 is in the 200hp area... so it ain't such a huge kill.

My boss just gotta 530.

My IS 300 got wrecked a few weeks ago so I'm waiting for the 2002 to come out but when they do he's in big trouble!


I'm getting a manual and have already ordered the SRT Race intake, stage 2 ecu and a greddy evo which should put me at over 200 hps at the wheels! He's not gonna know what hit him!!

The funny thing about getting older...you do attain a little better judgment, but for the most part the age is only on the outside. You'll see.
