yeah and showing off....
last night I raced a E39 (2002 or 2003) 530i on the way home. It was this jamaican kid and we were coming down Atlantic Ave. I knew his car had more power but we were playing cat and mouse in mild traffic at night on an very dark industrial road with overhead railroad tracks and more potholes that swizz cheese9its a main truck route thru Brooklyn). I actually beat him, not by driving faster or having a fast car, but by driving smarter plus my new bilsten sports shocks are awesome for handling tight turns and squeezing in between slow cars.
His car was lowered it seemed and he was avoiding potholes and manhole covers. I never noticed the E39 body is way too big and clumsy (relative to my E36 body) to manuver thru traffic at high speeds. Anyway I won and I didn't even need an M3 or a M3 badge!
