So I was driving my Grandma up to some restaurant in the middle about an hour away for my sisters birthday (my grandma doesn't like to drive at night) I took her BMW (330i, super nice for a grandma) and she doesn't care how fast I go in her car so I grab my valentine one and jump in her car. The first thing that happens is that I race a Mustang GT. I'm not sure the spec differences between these cars but after about 95 I took him easily up to 105. Remember my Grandma is right next to me. Then the rest of the story were a few other races and basically cruzin a 100+ all the way there and back.

Just thought Id share

Does that 330i not seems slow when driving it because you drive an M3?

yea, unlike mine who thinks that 35 MPH in a 50 is way too fast.

Yea it is auto, with some Manual Mode that is kinda fun (not tip-tronic)

There is deffinately a huge difference but it is definatly a fun car... The suspension is really loose (compared to an M3, but has a nice suspension), and of course, th sound and feel of the engine and its power is nothing compared to the M3.


I don't see her really often but I will try to take some pics if I remember

Driving fast with the grandmother....

I think my grandma would shit a brick! As a matter of fact the only people I can drive fast with are my friends.

My grandma drives a four door 4 banger integra. With more paint on the stuff she has run into than on the car!

Hookers need love too!
