I was getting on the highway for a short stint to go and pick up my son from school. There is a Cooper S in the left lane and I am in the right. I pass him going about 75...he immediately jumps into the middle lane and tries to play catchup. I let him get to my driver door and tried to shift into 3rd gear...::grind-grind:: Ooops...so I hit 4th instead, he is up to my driver door now and I dump it. He is instantly loosing ground, I run up to about 110 and slow it down, he is pretty far back at this point. I let off as my exit was coming up and started to slow down, gave him a wave when he passed.

Yet another 4 door domination.....
