It's nice driving a normal-looking "sleeper"

Driving back from picking up some paint at Lowe's, I stopped at a traffic signal. I was first in line, and a blue Mustang with racing stripes pulled up behind me. The light changed, and I goosed it a little bit ... then had to stop at the next light ... again with the Mustang settling in behind.

When the second light changed, I started off gently (still faster than the pickup beside me), but had no intention to race. The racing striped Mustang pulled around me, tooted his horn then took off in the left lane. I was then behind a slow car in my (right) lane, so I let the 'stang accelerate till he was 5 or 6 car-lengths ahead ... then I stomped it ... and before he knew it, I was sitting right behind him ... and he was still mashing it ... surprise, surprise!

I guess the "wing" on the trunk, the racing stripes and the nice-sounding exhaust couldn't help him get out of the way of an ordinary-looking 535i with a Cobb Access Port ... and I have no bolt-ons either (yet)!

Just thought I'd pass the story on ... love my Bimmer!

PS I don't know what model the Mustang was, of course ... and I'm sure I don't have the fastest car around ... I just got a kick out of this guy thinking he could walk away from me.

Mein Auto: 2008 550i
When I had my 530 I was driving home from work one day. I get off the freeway onto a main street and this POS Trans AM pulls up next to me, and when I say POS, I mean POS - only the roof was the original color (white), the rest of the car was a mix of blue/green/red and it sounded like crap. Anyway the light turns green and he takes off, I accelerate normally. At the next light he is laughing and saying "Ha, I beat you, car's not as fast as you thought, huh?" My reply? "2 things: 1) I wasn't racing and 2) You lost when you left your driveway in that piece of ****"
