535i vs. Jeep Wrangler
Saturday night, pulled beside of a late model Jeep wrangler. Thought nothing of it, but when the light turned green, I heard him open up.
So with my slushbox in economy mode, I rolled down to the WOT switch and let him have it. 1st gear, I pulled half a car...2nd, 3/4 of a car up to 60, and we caught another light. He turned on to a side road, and I followed, as I was curious why in the $%&$-^$##$%^ I didn't eat him alive??? I'm bone stock, 161k miles and pretty healthy as far as I know.
Considering that I didn't launch hard at all, does this seem normal?
P.S: The experience convinced my wife that I needed power upgrades, she agreed that no Jeep should be able to hang with "her" BMW. So it was a double win for me. Oh, also spanked a 2004 f-350, Powerstroke w/ exhaust and maybe a chip....can't get a straight answer out of the guy. 4-5 cars to 75.
not sure if those are kills to be proud of......
What should I expect from it? Regarding handling, it's impressive. Power, not so much. It's got enough to carry me home, but nothing to raise eyebrows.
So, that is the reason for the post. I was a bit disappointed, and wanted to know if my frustration was unfounded.
BTW, don't underestimate a diesel pickup, I've seen them that would give my old mustang(sub-8 second car in the 1/8th) a run for it's money.
