E36 M3 vs. VW Golf

No clue what engine was in the Golf. It was debadged and I don't know my vdubs.

White VW golf, newish body, I'd say 3-4 years old. Modded, no clue how much. Exhaust, with some funky glowing blue dials spread about the cabin--which could mean turbo or which could mean he really likes to know the oil temperature. Gallows Road southbound from US 29 to Annandale, three runs rolling from 30 to about 65, at which point I was a car length or two ahead...would slow down each time to let him catch up, cruise at 30 for a bit, then he would step on it again (and of course I couldn't disappoint). I'll be charitable and assume he had a 1.8. Not an especially good kill, but fun nonetheless.



1999 E39 540i/6-VF Stage 1 S/C, Dinan exhaust, Dinan strut+shock braces, Dinan ltwt flywheel + clutch, Dinan Brembo BBK, Dinan monoball, H&R Springs, Koni Yellows, M5 sways, Dinan forged 18" wheels, &c.

1995 E38 740i. Highly modded. Faster than you.

Sold 2-28-07: 1997 E36 M3/4, 8-30-05 RIP 1997 528i

N/A I'm sure you can, I keep up with them pretty good. But if someone buys an R32 boost is in the works, that's what they built them for. That's why it never hurts to ask before you run 'em.

Stock R32, yes. But not by much, they are darned quick.
