My Ride: 1999 BMW 318i E46 4D
Exclamation

LOL i live in probably the woggiest area in Australia, so they dont bother me I live with em every day. But I had a similar thing ... ive got a 98 E46 318i and there was this prick in a black Holden SV6 Ute doing 80 in a 100 zone so i went to pass and the prick sped up. So I planted, got past him with not much room to spare between me and an oncoming car, so now this fellas sittin right up my ass ... so im thinkin, right prick, cya later, and floored it ... I'm flyin along this road doing 190 and I had almost lost sight of him (he couldn't keep up), only problem was, my destination is a dead end town, a beach town, so I get there go up a hidden quiet street and decide ill sit there for half an hour or something to make him give up ... about 15 minutes later he almost drives past the street then stops and reverses and sits at the end of the street. So I'm thinkin I'll head out of the little town again so I go to get past him and he takes a photo of me with his phone. Now IM pissed. So i go to turn around and he goes screamin past. I follow him with ease for 20 minutes back into the nearest larger town. he pulls up at the cop shop and gets out. I pull up and i say "Are you done playing your games now mate? Ya finished trying to kill people?" And hes playing dumb hes pretended he has no idea what im talking about, he rung the door of the cop shop cuz its after hours and got no answer. So im still goin off my nut at him and as hes gettin in his car drive off and I'm yellin comeon ya prick come at me like a man blah blah. I thought about it later and realized i knew him from somewhere. I know him from 3 years ago in grade 12. He was the ****ing Catholic Priest!!!!!

I never ended up hearing from the cops lol. And about 3 weeks after that I asked a mate whos a cop to check out my Police Profile see if there were any Informants on there against me. There weren't lol.

Bloody lucky I can tell you that ........

Anyway guys, here is a bit of info for u

I went to Calder for a drag event last night,

came up against a E39 535, we were both in street trim, and basically full tank each

we both didn't warm up the tyres, just basically how ud be off the street
Asc was on and I didn't drop the clutch,


anyway, off the line I won, could see both their headlights in my rear view

5 series started to come back though


Was very interesting

This probably didn't cross your mind, but, did you ever think maybe he didnt want to keep up with some lunatic doing 190 along the road... that is if you eventually got enough room to get your 4-banger up to that speed...
cause i'm pretty sure a SV6 would keep up with a 318i...

Who's doing rediculous speeds on the road.. and cutting it fine when overtaking?

Good story though Terry i'll file it under fiction...

Yeah, but the problem is you'd be halfway to Canberra from Sydney if you wanted to get it upto that speed!

Actually i'm pretty confident i could get a '98 e46 318i to do the 0-200km/h in around 10s!
Namely by ditching one off a 100m high cliff & letting good old dependable gravity (& it's 9.8m/s acceleration downwards) work it's magic!
