: Hi all-

: Well, I finally got around to racing my friend this past weekend - he has a '97 A41.8T (with K&N air filter, chip upgrade, and vortex fan in the intake). We had best of five 1/4 mile races, and he soundly kicked my ass 4 out of 5 times (by about 1 car length). I usually got a better launch than him, but he caught up and eventually surpassed me by the 1/4 mile marker. The car was definitely faster on the launch with the DSC off (obviously). The only time I won was when he had a faulty launch and smoked his front tires. With all the mods he made, his car is pushing about 205 hp, and it weighs less than mine, so I guess I expected to lose. Either way, it sure was fun to finally see what my 3 could do - it's finally broken in! Now all I need is some mods of my own so I could avenge my defeat.

: -MKL '00 328i (stock - 750 miles)

Were both cars manual tranny's?
