In Reply to: 730d against A4 V6 TDI posted by turbovet (France) on December 26, 1999 at 11:14:44:

: Was driving on a German highway today (went in Germany for Xmas with my girlfriend) around 100miles/h and suddenly a BMW730d (184hp-300lb/ft)arrived behind me at around 130miles/h. I left him overtake me in order to see if it was a diesel 6cyl car or V8/V12 (exhausts tips are specific). Yes it was a diesel one and marked 730d. I followed him easily and went at his left side when he had to brake because of a car in front of him. Then I drove around 130 and he came to my side in a big ramp. When he was just 1/4 car ahead me, I put 100% throttle... He felt I was coming a little in front of him and came to 100% throttle too (i saw a big black cloud behind him in my mirrors). We were on the ramp. But because his car is heavier, I think, he couldn't overtake me and came behind me... and i saw him, he was farer and farer from me. At this time, I looked at the speedometer: 240km/h (around 150miles/h). Wahoooo.......
: What a pleasure it was, i know it's so childish perhaps but I wanted to see how the car performed against the top 6cyl diesel BMW...
