so im cruising down the 210 East and this black S type blows past me doing well over 100. so the little devil on my shoulder tells me to hammer it and go chase his ass down. i reel him in after about 1/4 mile...i was too lazy to downshift to 4th. when i passed him i didnt see a 3.0 badge on his car and noticed it was brand new it still had the dealer paper plates. so this is when i slow down to give him a chance. and so he starts pulling me in and i was able to dust his ass once i downshifted and i kept him like 5-6 buslengths behind me for like 3 miles before i exited the freeway and he did a ricer flyby minus the flashing of hazards . now i dont think it could have been a supercharged v8 but it definitely wasnt a 3 point slow.

how fast are the non supercharged V8's?

anyone calling bullshit triggrhppi was a passenger in my car

I believe it. They don't make Jags like they used too. And they're HEAVY.

Where does it say he was driving a 330i? With 0-60 times like that (a bit quicker than I thought) he must have shifted poorly.

They make them better actually. Their reliability is actually improving.
