Hey guys,

So about an hour ago (1ish) i was driving on rt 95 South at about 75 mph ( i was comming from cranston RI back to south kingston RI) and i was a lil tense from previouse events of the day. Well anyways i see this silver acura cruising along infront of me with a big ol rice cannon hangin off the back so i decide "sure lets have some fun blow off steam" so i pull up next to them drop it into 4th rev the engin and what not but i dont get any repsonse (the acura had tint so i couldnt see in) so im like well "fuck this" so i speed up back up in 5th gear and i dip infront of the acura so he can drink in the M badge . So after givin him a min of that i head over to the high speed lane so i can merg onto Rt 4 when all of a sudden the acura goes roaring by in the far lane so i look at my exit, look at the acura, and back to the exit and figure..... Eh what the hell so i cut out of my exit and pull up next to the acura (still in 5th) around 80mph so the acura is really pushing hard and im just sorta sitting next to him keeping my nose just a foot ahead of his not pushing it at all lol just messing with him, so every time he would fall back a little i would let off the gas and keep it even and then the dude SHIFTS!!!! he was in 4th! pushing that poor POS as hard as he could and here i am sitting in 5th gear just messing with him lol! and then i look over and see there is a passenger in the car with a video camera! (the driver had his window down prob so his camera man could catch the fun) so now i think o what the fuck these kids are gonna think they kept up with a M3 and show it to all thier friends lol. so i decide enough is enough and just floor it. I look down and i see that i have succefuly BURIED MY NEEDLE!!! WOO HOOO!!! thats right ladies and gentle men i have officaly for the first time put my needle all the way to 160! (im sure many ppl have but i have had the car for like a month lol )

So yea if u see a video of an acura racing a black M3 and holding his own let us know cause its prob me lol!

man that is a great kill. I'm glad you didn't let the acura think that he can hang with an M. That's the way to represent

that's sweet going 160 or so, you had the governor removed on your car right? Do stock M3's go 160?

Check your alignment. Every BMW I've driven thus far (318i, 535ix2, current m3) has been stable well over 100 (typically 110-125 in these cars). And one of these cars didn't even even have a 3rd gear!
If it's not alignment or tire wear, it might just be that you need to lay off the caffeine


Crap, I think I may be a yuppie...

Wow, good stuff dude

This past weekend I pushed my 325i over 200km/h for the first time . Car is unbelievable at that speed. You really dont feel anything but the rush from going that fast. Could've easily gone 220 but traffic was creaping up on me.
