Early morning, I'm on my way to school, rocking some tunes and enjoying a semi-fast drive with one car in front of me. I glance in the mirror and instantly recognize E36 corner lights and headlights. I let off, to let the guy catch up and he passes me on the left... It's a 328i. I immediatelly step on it and move into the left lane behind him. I follow him around from lane to lane for about a mile and then we find ourselves lined up at a light.

What comes next is by no means pretty. Light turns green, he steps on it (and I can tell he is manual from a previous light that had a little slope), and so do I. He jumps out in front by about a foot, and as I redline first he shifts (I'm guessing about 4k rpm), and falls back a bit... not really a race, but it showed me how much faster those fucking things are than my piece of machinery.


On the way back from school, another interesting encounter. I am cruising the same road from the other direction with 10 am traffic almost non-existant... to my right, and back is a Gran Prix. I don't think much of it, until I see the furious driver try to pass me and the 'Prix's front end lift up. Ahh hell no, I punch it, and pull away just a bit, while the driver of the American sedan backs off.

Next light is crucial point of this road/event. The road splits up left and right, and straight (that is blocked due to construction, and has many big orange cones -- im talking the person sized ones). She is on the right, me on the left (and it's a grand prix se (shit eater ?!!?) ). I know she wants in, in front of me, but can I prevent it ?

Light turns green, my reaction time is much better and I take the jump. She stabs the throttle and the torquey American car propells right by me... but not much. By the time She pulled up in front I was in second and now reeling that thing in... she couldn't get in. She slams on the brakes and almost plows the cones, while swerving towards me. I just swerve around her and take my place at the next light....

So Grand Prix 1 vs 1 525i.

And oh boy would I get it in the twisties .

I especially hate it when they want to get in front of me and there is nobody behind me. Like wtf, you wanna pass me so you can do 20 under the limit in front of me ?

You're not going anywhere lol.

Yeah I hate all the kids by my school with fast cars who drive very slowly or they cut me off at about 60 going up the hill near our school. So I go in the other lane and go past them. Man BMW's are so good at weaving in and out of traffic.
