A fairly new one, not sure exactly but at least a 2002.

Lined up at the light with the guy on my way home from a bimmer meet here in SLC. Neither of us rev'd or looked at other or anything so I didn't think anything of it, plus the guy looked to be in his 30's with his wife. Light turns green and he guns it, catches me off guard. I punch it and try to keep up, he is probably 12 car lengths ahead of me and not gaining, shift to 2nd and I start gaining very very slowly, shift to 3rd and start pulling more, by now I am about 1 car length back and he shuts down and makes a turn. I honked and waved.

It's funny because I have been waiting for a mustang kill ever since I got my car, I missed my perfect oppurtunity. I had also been telling the guys all night how badly I wanted a mustang kill.

300 ft lbs of torque and the M3 can still put a spanking on those things!

i am actually kind of glad no one was reving or anything, I would have just embarresed my self. I have only attemted to launch my car twice now since I have owned it. One launch I bogged and the other I sat and spun the tires through 1st and 2nd.

Oh well I lost but I will get me a mustang sooner or later.
