Your Ride: 2003 330ci
IS300 vs Lil ol me?
Crusing on the 210 at 3am, I was actually getting kinda sleepy when I saw bright xenons coming up behind me on the carpool lane real fast. I was at about 80, so I decided to bump it up and see where it will lead. I've never pushed my 330, as I had just bought it a couple of months before this. The IS comes up next to me as I hit 90, and I guess he realized I wanted a piece of him and he gunned it at the same time i downshifted. We took it a couple of miles of road, I hit 115-120 or so, but he just kept right next to me. I eventually chickened and cruised back down to 85 or so, but it left me with a whole new respect for lexii. Hehe. My question is...what is the speed limiter on 2003 series 330ci's? I thought it was a bit higher than 120, but at 120 it seemed like it stalled a little. Also, man, I think that IS could have taken me if I pushed it, could it have? Don't they have roughly the same hp's? He had 4 doors, I had 2, and most likely he had a passenger (carpool lane) and I was alone. Made me go hmmmmmm...
Umnitza now provides a mechanic to install all parts ordered right in the box! It's their new "Total customer service program" that will eliminate all the haters and keep incompetents from breaking **** and blaming the vendor! When you are all set simply call INS and they will pick him up free of charge.
^^ Hehe..give me a break man, first beemer, I'm workin on getting my balls to be the size of yours, don't worry. Let me beat up on some ricers I know I can kill first. =)
BTW, it's a bimmer. A true enthusiast knows that beemer is the BMW motorcycle. Back in the day, BMW got their start in motorcycles. BMW's main competion in motorcycle racing was the BSA's. As track slang devoloped, the BSAs were known as "beasers" and the BMWs were called "beemers". As BMW began producing automobiles, the cars were called "bimmers", so as not to confuse them with the motorcycles. As the cars were imported into the United States, some things were lost in translation and the bimmer was reduced to beemer or beamer. Which, in reality is a motorcycle. Not trying to be mean, but since it is your first bimmer, you should know. BTW, welcome to ub.c
