I took a little Saturday afternoon drive today and had a Toyota Supra tailgaiting me for a good portion of the drive. I was weaving in and out of traffic to get away. We finally met at a red light and I looked over to see who the A#$hole was. At this point I was a little irritated with this chump. So, I thought maybe this was a good time to push my z3 to the max. I knew that I would probably get blown away but I was just a little curious to see how much juice my BMW had. The light turned green and we were head to head for about 3 seconds until he blew my 1.9 away. Next, I see another Z3 turning into our direction. It was a silver one. As he kept up with my car I looked over and the guy driving gave a quick "thumbs-up". As he past me, I discovered it was an ///M. As I was behind the silver ///M at the red light, the Supra started to giving the engine some high revs. At this point I was excited. I wonder what would happen. The Supra 'reving' his engine while the silver ///M is quietly waiting for the green light. As soon as the light turned...the ///M was way ahead of the Supra!! NO MATCH for the BMW!!! I was laughing and smiling as if this was one of greatest moments I had seen. Kinda like the BIG Brother helping out the little brother.
I had only been driving my 1.9 for roughly 5 1/2 months now. It drives great, handles great, and I love it. I had put a windscreen, AutoLoc alarm, Nakamichi stereo/cd changer, and a wood trim kit in it. Now, what to do now?? I think I gotta another itch again. Except this "ITCH" is a real big one, ///M.
Has anyone upgraded their 1.9 to an ///M. Wonder what I would get for a trading up. Any comments or suggestions.
