It's pretty tame, but I had just met the guy five minutes prior. Didn't want to abuse his bad-ass car.

You don't see me at all, because I'm entirely too ugly to be video taped.

We ended up doing a few runs against each others. He trounced me from a stop because my tires are wearing really thin. From a roll, it was closer, but he still walked.

Cool shit.

Before you know it though Spiff or Deloriant will jump in here saying they drive better than you.

Yeah, I'm sure they could've mashed the pedal into the floor better than me, considering it's an automatic. Haha.

It pulls HARD, man. Regardless if it's an auto or not, it's a god damn beast.

When I was driving it back to Jack in the Box to pick up my car so we could run, I was so hesitant on the pedal.

Yeah, I got a stick. The reason he has an auto is because his wife can't drive a stick. He's considering getting an ///M5, I believe.

It was still a blast to drive because it was so taut and powerful. Plus, he had a steering wheel from an E46 ///M3, so it was cool driving around this big ass sedan with a tiny steering wheel.

I really would've melted the tires if I had turned DSC off -- but like I said: I had just met the guy about 10 minutes prior. He's in his mid 30's. Awesome guy.

I'm supposed to race an E36 ///M3 after the rains clear, and the guy with the Dinan 5 wants to tape it.

AMG can't build an NA engine that can compete with M engines, so they stick in a supercharger and say their cars are faster. BMW could simply do the same, but they don't out of principle.</span>

The fog wasn't that bad. That's why it has fog lamps. Haha.

I could've driven the car faster, had I turned off DSC and pressed the pedal down slower instead of just mashing it.

We'll do a run against each other and tape it.

We met at Jack in the Box, drove to a deserted street next to an airfield, shot the shit for ten minutes, and he was like:

"Here's the keys."

Great guy.
