killed 135i; killed Carrera 4S
Denver, 630pm, Saturday night: driving to Boulder. I'm in the center lane of 3. Brand new 135 I proceeds past me in the left lane rather expeditiously. I drop it into 3rd, and very quickly catch up to him. Two teenagers in the 135, and it has an autotragic transmission. We line up, I have it in 3rd at 65 mph. He hits it after the 2nd honk. Doesn't matter to me, I reel him in by the top of 3rd. By 5000 rpm in 4th, I'm a couple of carlengths ahead. Kids are ecstatic despite their loss.
Mountains, 5:30pm, Sunday: pass a Carrera 4S that I had caught up to; over the next few miles, he almost loses it a couple of times trying to keep up, finally backs off. I have a feeling this was an inexperienced driver...
