so earlier tonight around 8:30 i leave to go to my girlfriends house...
well i turn onto a street & am waiting at a traffic light behind a late model (05,06,07) BMW z4 with some aftermarket toys added to the interior, nothing for performance from what i saw...

the light turns green & he turns into the right line, i turn and go into the left... i accelerate as i normally would, really not looking for anything, and i notice he (early 20s probably) hits it so he 'gets to the light quicker' :bigroll:

we're both at the light, i look over & we both smirk..
i shift into Sport Mode, turn off the Traction control & collect some change out of my ashtray (they always spill when you accelerate hard)... and i double check the road for cars & the Escort for cop radar.

right before the light hits green my damn cell phone rings & i look down at the cupholder where it was resting in :cursin: ... Light goes green & he floors it. I caught up tho and for like 1/5 of a mile we ran up to the low 80s & slowed down as soon as we saw the traffic up ahead.

he had me from the get go (i'm betting because i didnt watch the damn light or rev at all) but i got him around 50, 60 and on.

I was happy, huge smile on my face. he honked his horn & gave a thumbsup before he turned off.


didnt think my entry level cadillac sedan could take out a BMW sports coupe, guess so! :rolleyes: :thepan: :highfive:

I can see the firebombs coming about this:

"He wasn't racing,"
"He didn't know how to drive,"
He didn't know he was racing,"

All that shit. Nice kill man, but I'm jet getting you prepared...

haha thanks, no when the speed limit is 30 & you're doing 50,60,70 & still going side by side w/ someone else i think that qualifies as competition.

When I was out test driving a 1976 Lincoln once, I pulled up next to an E36 M3 at a stop light. I looked over and the guy in the M3 was like "lets race you ****ing ******", and I was like "bitch, this is a 460! She will stomp your ass!" I pop it into neutral and rev that big ol' sucker a few times. Light turns green, I take 'er to the floor and she spins both rear tires into 3rd gear, totally beat that M3. I look in my rearview and saw the M3 shoot a rod out the top of the engine, then get t-boned by a Peterbilt. Hahaha 76 Lincoln FTW.

Yeah, but the Z4 also came with a 2.5l engine (41hp less than the 3.0), and most reviews say that the 2.5l (with a manual) is at least a second slower to 60. That puts the CTS within striking distance of the Z4, and if the Z4 was an auto, or a manual with a so-so driver, this race is entirely plausible.

^^^what he said, totally believeable...the older 2.5's are fairly slow, 184 hp iirc. Even the newer 3.0i (not 3.0si) with 215 hp is a formidable match. But they are fairly light, around 3000 lbs.

Wow, that was a joke. I made that whole thing up and added the semi part to throw it over the top.

Anyways, sorry if I offended you, sometimes I'll go over the top and put a little too much into it.

My best friends girl drives a Merlot colored 05 Z4. I destroy it on every level 0-60, 0-100, 50-100. They are garbage/ STS rules.
