In Reply to: New M3 vs 330 smoked him posted by Jim M3 on September 10, 2001 at 13:13:17:
I was coming home last Friday night and I saw this new 330i on the highway coming home. I noticed him first and got behind him. He saw my xenon lights and took notice right away. I dropped it into 3rd right were the traffic shakes out and everything loosens up and passed him like a bat out of hell. Then he saw me and took off after me. It was no competition the M3 pulled away and weaved through the traffic while this guy did everthing he could to catch up. The sad part was I was being conservative I had the Valentine 1 on but this particular place a county boy sits with Laser. I peaked at about 110 and let him catch up. I don't think he liked getting smoked by an M3 but he found out why he should have held out for the M. So he passed me in a fury after I slowed down and tried to save face. Don't quit understand what the point of passing somebody is after they have soundly beat you but I hope it made him feel better. I really expected better performance from those.
