He simply told me, that if I try real hard, it won't accelrate so quickly and to slow down. 3 other times I have been pulled over for speeding and let go. I think the cops wanted to a) inflate his ego a bit, b) confirm that the car was not stolen c) get a closer look at the M3 d) remind me that I need to follow the rules anyway.
There is no argument against the fact that if you are speeding in an M3 you are less likely to be pulled over than if you are speeding in a ratty old car, which may also have other safety issues. The M3 is less likely to be driven by someone who is breaking any other law to be concerned about than speading.
First of all, my friend, you are very wrong in judging people based on the sallary they earn. Second of all, I didn't finish college, yet if I wanted to, I can afford a brand new m3, but it's not worth it at my age (20). Third of all, you think you drive a BMW it makes you something special? Dude, THAT is the reason the cops were picking on HIM, because he WAS driving a BMW, and because of dumbass airheads like you, who think you are better than everyone else BECAUSE they are in a BMW, that he gets such a treatment. Stop being ingorant.
"fact that the M3 accelerates so quickly"
Was that a line you fed the officer or do you actually believe it? 240HP/236lb-ft of torque is not exactly a monster difficult to tame. PLENTY of cars are about as fast or faster - straight line, anyway -- and I'm not talking only about Corvette, Porsche, Viper, etc.
