BMW vs. The Cobalt

Short story I'm in clifton and some guy in a suit in a 5 series brand new BMW is next to me at the light. So I look over very nice BMW brand new 2008. So he looks over and gives me this shitty look and revs. So I was like alright whatever. I hear him rev up preparing to launch I was like ummm alright so I rev to about 3K light turns green. needlkess to say the mounts are helping a little spins and we are off. he pulls ahead a fender we bnoth shift into second and I pull a fender and then about 55 I shift into third and pull a door on him and keep him there till about 75 and then he hits the brakes! I was somewhat suprised I wish I knew if it was a 530i, 540i, etc.

It should give the new M3 V8 all it wants that's for sure.

They are nothing to brag about......my boss has one, and we played on the highway coming home tonight. I was running him in the 86 granny camry, and held him a car length behind at 75, with no issues

There's some strange things going on in Canada because any post 1987 M3 would rip you a new one if the driver was putting any effort into it. The newer M3s are low 13 second cars, two generations back were mid 14 second cars and any older then that are in the mid 15s. The new one will probably run 13.0. Your 86 Camary is probably an 18 second car if not higher.

I'm not saying your story is BS because anything can happen on the street but don't go around running down the M3, it's legendary for a reason and it's not because Camarys run with them. They are seriously quick cars, especially when you get them on the twisties.
