So, on my way to work this AM, I am in the mountains around Los Angeles behind a guy in a Lotus Super 7 (great license plate "EETIKET"). The car in front pulled over and he hit it...

Well, we were going up hill and through a left-right combination and he had no chance. The power of my 99 M3 just did him in. Then I felt a little guilty since the guy only had a wheezy 4 banger (althoug I realize his car weighed half as much). So, we started-off again on a down hill run. Once again, the M3 spanked the Lotus. Not only could he not pull away, I actually closed on him and moved to pass while we were going around a corner (I did NOT actually pass since it was a blind corner ... I just let him know I COULD pass).

The thing is, his car looked like a go-kart, it seemed to have no suspension at all. And yet, here I was enjoying my CD Changer in my leather lined coccoon with my automatic air conditioning and trip computer and he got toasted.

Again, the M3 proves itself to be The Ultimate Ultimate Driving Machine!

Everybody have fun.
