i was in my 325i today and heres what happened....well i was pulling out onto the highway when i see this guy coming up behind me in his 02 eclipse gt conv...he has 18s intake exhaust, i think thats about it..well i whip out there and get over in the fast lane on it hard and i see him in my rearview getting in my lane, well he's keeping up with me pretty good, i weave in and out of traffic and when it opens up we are doing about 85, then i have it floored in 5th gear and he just keeps gaining and gaining on me, by the time we are at 110, i slide over in the other lane and let him pass, all he did was give me a wave and keep on going...man i was pissed...maybe i shoulda turned the ac off, dunno if it would have made a huge difference though...
