I was at a stoplight middle of the day, a weekend. Audi A6 decides he wants to get ahead of me by stomping it at the green.

I get this smile on my face and mash it when he's a car length ahead of me. I had three people in my car, he was solo. I blew by him. I knew he was racing because I could hear his engine rev up really high.

Not much of a kill, as it was kinda like shooting fish in a barrel.

I'm guessing this was your STS.
I'll belive it, but it must have been the A6 2.8 V6

It would have been even cooler if it was your '93 Sedan DeVille
Really surprise that A6!

From the way the A6 was accelerating, I bet my 4.9 could have at least stayed even.

That's not real impressive esp since Car and Driver mag rated the 4.9 in a 1993 Deville at 0-60 in 8.3.
