Moving this to General BMW cause it's not off topic... it's about a bmw, your car.... but it doesn't really fit in kill stories or e36. Haha
And on topic, bimmers are very balanced cars. It's not all about brute HP like in some cars. For instance when I first got my car, I held with my friend's slightly modded gt. (since then we've both done more modding and now he rapes me though... lol) I didn't think I'd stand a chance against him, but bmws can be surprising (in good ways).
