I'd just picked up pizza for dinner today and I was getting on this long freeway on ramp where i live and hit about 90mph at the top as i do if there's nothing infront of me (i'm an unconcious speeder all the time), and right as i go to merge onto the freeway there's a grey 1.8T golf, new one, doing about the same speed. The freeways pretty empty, it was about an hour ago, 730ish on a wednesday night. I'm felt like seeing if he would go so i went around him behind him into the fast lane and took off in 4th. He followed suit and started going, pretty much keeping up with me. But when i shifted to 5th at about 100 i started to pull away and 10 seconds later i was up with traffic so i had to cross three lanes left and dart through a hole between a slow old guy and a mini van then open freeway again, he followed but i was gaining ground the whole time. After about 30 seconds if foot to the floor he's a good 10 car lengths behind me and flashes his high beams. I let off and threw my hazard warning lights on once and came off at my exit and let him catch up. i waved as he passed the off ramp on the freeway and he's the only race i've ever had where the guy's giving me a thumbs up and smiling as he goes on. It was quite a rush. Not bad for an E36 325is with K&N cold intake the only performance mod.

nice kill!
those 1.8t engines are slow as hell. Is it true that chips change those cars into beasts?

this teacher at my school has a Jetta with a 1.8t engine i think...auto. LOL he says his car has 450 hp and it only has a chip and exhaust. Oh and the 6 speed shift nob on his auto AHhahAHh lame

The great thing about turbo cars is chipping them almost always ups the boost. How much you can up the boost on a stock car with stock turbos and stock intercoolers comes down to the car itself...but most cars let you get at least 5 more lb stock.

it's actually a really decent engine and responds really well to mods. The bottom end is rock solid as well. I considered getting an a4 before I bought a 328is.

It's good to hear that there are still "civil racers" out there. Not that I e....er... condone any sort of dangerous behavior.

i've done much more dangerous stuff. IE me and serge "racing" each other at 120+ for a stretch of 15 mile freeway at night weaving inbetween traffic taking full advantage of the BMW lane (shoulders)
