Long story short.

Stoplight race.

Me: 98 540iA

Him: 96/97 Civic Si Hatchback (Lowered, tinted, Full
of stickers, boombox I think)

Result: Civic stayed ahead of me until about
115 km. I passed him but had to immediately stop at the next redlight. F&$%, again, I couldn't overtake him
until 120 km.

Results mean that the Civic's 0-60 is faster than my
car.

Question?: How is that possible? What kind of
mods did that guy do to his car? Turbo/Nitrous/Supercharger?

So, has anyone installed a supercharger yet. I remember
a post back awhile about someone installing an ESS unit. How is that coming along?

After this incident, I really,really want one.

NW
