so today, filled up w/ 6 gallons of v-power. $14.50. anyways. i pull on to the street i see this bright red 1.8T. turns out it was my cousin(exhaust mod only), so i slow down, down shift to 2nd at 35 mph. i see her downshift in my rearview so i wait for her, she punches it and passes me. i punch it catch up pretty quick, shift into third. i gradually pull on her, shift into 4th and im about a 1.5 carlengths ahead. at 105 i decide to slow down since we were in a 40 mph zone . all in all i was somewhat disappointed that i didnt pull faster. she did have the head start but whatev. a fun day after filling up. i have some pics of her car somewhere. anyways, hope u guys enjoyed!!!

a volkswagen or audi? the 2002+ vw gti 1.8t's are pretty quick, something like 180hp at the crank and weighs significatly less than your bmw, you should be proud of that kill.

nice.
