Those cars are very fun to drive, and are quite tossable. Given time with a Miata, it's owner is sure to start thinking he/she is a racecar driver. That's where that kind of talk comes from.

I wouldn't worry, while fun to drive, they are quite slow, and I'm sure you'd be fine in a dog fight. I will say the 94 325i auto isn't gonna win many races though.

As far as 1/4 mile time, on papaer, you should beat him easily. But your cars have some age on them,and it would depend on both car's conditions, and your ability to drive them.

As for a street race, it would be totally up to the driver.

Just race him, but don't get cocky and blow it. Be wary of your abilities, push you car to the limit, but don't cross it. I'd say, be safe and take it on a 1/4 mi track.

Stats:
'93 325i
6cylinder 2.5L
189hp@5900rpm
181lbft@4200
RWD
3087lbs
0-60mph 8.4sec (manual?)
1/4 mi 16.5sec

'99 Miata Rx (year assumption)
4cylinder 1.8L
140hp@6500rpm
119lbft@5500rpm
RWD
2299lbs
0-60mph ~8.1sec.
1/4 mi ~16.3

Could be a close race, but who knows, maybe you've got good skills. Good Luck.

Dough

If I may suggest, find somewhere near you where they do autoX and practice. Learn how to drive your ulitmate driving machine, and wipe the road with that Mazda. Do that before you "race". Besides, you never know when it may help you in the future.
