Kinda raced a cocky 525i
Well, today on my way back from picking up my O2 sensor from my friend's house (The one that gets me BMW parts at employee cost), I came across an e39 525i. The guy was like two cars behind me, I had noticed him bcs of his angel eyes. We get to this first light and I was just looking at his car, nothing big really, regular E39 euro lights all around, not much. But the guy was revving it up. I was like :confused.. but whatever, the roads were slick from it raining previously today, so I didn't launch my car but I pushed it (didn't floor it though) and so did he and obviously beat him, he was behind me and couldn't keep up. We get ot the next light, and the guy still revving it up, at this point I had shown my ownage (Plus I was feeling my O2 sensor giving me crap) and kinda ignored him, he launches his car, I just drive like I usually do (kinda fast)... and the guy gets to this car in front of him and since it's wet when he changes lanes his car slides a bit :drive2 (I guess he made too quick of a motion. And I was right behind him (wasn't trying to pass him or anything) but that same car slowed the heck down when the 525 passed him so I changed lanes and we got to this other light, but their was a car in front of both of us. light turns green (And yes he was still revving it) and the car in front of me leaves before his, so I wait for him to start moving and I push the pedal a little, my car jerks ahead (once again showed him my ownage) and I sort of agresively passed the two other cars, and he got stock behind bcs the cars wouldn't let him pass :D .

Moral of this story, if you drive a 525 and see a 328 think twice before you try to race them, lol ;)

they dont make e39 525s... and secondly, i have a bad feeling your car is automatic, is it?

i thought they did make an e39 525? oh well...

Donald always finds pics of cars I kill, lol

And yes my car is Auto for several reasons:

when i bought it I was in a hurry to get a car, some lady had totaled my last car and I had no car. Well maintained E36 328is the way I wanted it (= I absolutely wanted a coupe and 328 nothing lower + had to be white you won't see me in anything other than a white car) are hard to come by in the auction (My dad is a car delaer so I get my car at dealer price from professional auctions). And a week after I started looking for a car this one came along, and it turned out to be an auto, my dad told me that I should get it bcs the chances of me finding one like this one in such a good shape under 100k manual are hard + would cost me more $$. And also my dad would prefer me driving an auto bcs he doesn't want me racing too much... :p

Nice! He had to know he can't keep up with a 328i :drummer

donald1476 06-07-2005 09:13 PM

Addicted? 06-07-2005 09:16 PM

my car has a clutch.. beyond the point... even i can take a 525 on the freeway... atleast one a few nights ago


Rooz 06-07-2005 09:48 PM

I mean, I don't know what the last two peops I ahve raced were thinking.. heck I think you might even be able to take a 528...

donald1476 06-07-2005 09:48 PM

if im not mistaken the 528 has the same engine, so i wouldnt doubt that.....

donald1476 06-07-2005 09:51 PM

I'd certainly hope so. Same situation as Donald was talking about above. The 525 has the same engine as your car, but weights a lot more. :)

doesn't he drive a 325? theirfore m50?

donald1476 06-07-2005 10:05 PM

Sorry, got confused.....the M52 was an upgrade to the M50 engine. The M52 was produced in 2.0 (M52B20), 2.5 liter (M52B25) and 2.8 liter (M52B28).
