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...



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

Well done, Prof...I'm all warm and fuzzy inside just thinking about it!


































OK, maybe that was a little creepy.

All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.

Quite.

Except perhaps that I drive a BMW, and not a Jagyouare.
