So I was crusin on a 6 lane (3 each way) divided highway, speed limit 50 mph, at around 60mph in the left most lane. This ugly blue chevy, can't tell if it was a cobalt or a Impala (and yes I did look on their site) came flying up and cut me off. We got stopped by the next light (each light is about 3/4 of a mile to 1 mile apart). He acclerated fairly slowly so when I could (I wasn't out of second yet) I pulled into the middle lane and passed him and moved back over to the left lane because of traffic and kept crusing at 60. After I had passed traffic he come pulling up on me, so I accelerate in 5th up to about 75 and he is right beside me just hanging there, he began to accelerate, so I downshifted to 4th and floored immediately began pulling. THe light upahead was already red so by 90 he had to start braking I kept infront of him and stopped, he was about 2 cars behind because of traffic in the middle lane when we stopped. After the light turned green we got through traffic and floored it with like results (me in front) before we get to the next light. When that light turned green the person infront of me was hella slow, and as he was passin he started honking his horn and flashing his lights... My turn came so I turned off since I had already established my ownage upon him.

But what kinda car was it? If it was an impala I would think it would have kept up if not killed me. The cobalt has 145 hp, but I have no idea of the weight... but still it should have been close... Maybe it was an auto. So any way yet another kill for the 318i...

Unhappy

A "race" in traffic is hardly a race.

One time, there was this car 6 spots behind me in line, and I did this super-duper all wheel launch and roasted them a bit...he didn't have a chance.

we were out of traffic, in large gaps between the light induced clumps of traffic. So I do not see your point. Also I believe I was making fun of the Chevy at the end of my story for the same thing you just mentioned....

Also it wasn't a crapalier because it was 4 doors, hence when I would think it was a cobalt or an Impala.

I don't think it was an Impala , in most states, Chevy Impalas are cop cars....I think you would have known that....so I'm thinking some other chevy....some other cars look like chevys....maybe it was something else and you didn't notice....oh well....I'll keep my eyes open.

It was not a cavalier as I have said before, the lines are no where near the same. I guess it was a cobalt because an impala should have killed me.

As for me being worried it was a cop car, it had some young black guy with the seat reclined back, no raido antenna, different counties plates, a dark metalic blue in color, also I had my friends passport radar detector in my car, so if he had been looking for speeders I would have known before he came flying by me.

Incase you didn't know, Impalas are available to the general public, and a lot of people buy them. I don't know why you think just because some police drive Impalas that nobody else does.

even then, most cop cars that are chevys are the old caprice.
