well i was coming home from work, its about 6:15 at the time, rush hour is starting for the mountain road i drive..luckly i didnt get any traffic, but this S2000 is behind me, right on my ass, and im like screw this...Ima take this guy. So were taking 20mph tirns at like 50-60, we go for about two minutes till a passing lane, and he attempts to pass..Im fucking flooring it, he starts to pass me, Im like Fuck. So he passes me were going about 75-80 and wide banked turns are coming our way. We dont brake, i downshift to third and half staff it. We both basically drift through this turn(...even though hes FF...i believe) his front was movin. So we take some more turns, at great speeds, hes slowly pulling away, cause of course my 91 318i with stock suspension isnt going to out race this guy. Well i decided to slow down cause i was drifting all of the turns. He got about 6 seconds on me when we hit traffic and it slowed down.

Good times.

I love my Bimmer (:

I havent had a chance to run with an S2k yet. I hear they are not really too fast off the line stock with the high ass powerband. I also hear they handle very well, good job running with him with stock suspension. Now if you throw some Koni's in the 318 with some good springs he won't stand much of a chance against you on the curves.

I love 4 foor BMW's, I don't think I would buy a 2 door. Love the sleeper....///M3 Power.
