I love these stories, they get better and better each time. I have a little trouble believing that this was a new M5. What's the bit about the supercharger? The GS400 which should be close to your SC400 in weight and power barely keeps up to a 540 6spd 1/4 mile 14.4-14.5 98-99mph (GS400) whereas the M5 is doing the quarter in 13.2 @ 107mph. The GS400does 1000m in I think 27.5 secs and the BMW is around 24.5 secs. This isn't anything against your car, but maybe his M5 wasn't running right. Is your SC400 as fast a 99 Corvette 6 spd?
