Beat a Carerra!!

Coming home from work last week, I pulled up at a light in the passing lane and had a relatively new Porsche Carerra next to me in the right lane....When the light turned green I came out normally and he went to pass me.....I nailed it around 10mph and he did the same...he jumped me by half a car as he shifted, but I caught him (slowly) around 60, and let off around 100 ahead by 3/4 of a car...........yeah, I'm stupid for going so fast, but it did feel great!......About 2 weeks previously I had the Stage 2 Dinan added to the Stage1 that I had.....there's no question that made the difference.........The lease comes due on my 2010 535 msport in Oct....I'm now even more inclined to buy it out....I was leaning toward a new 550, but now I'm not sure.... I'm going to have the dealer price it out for me in August........what should I do??

You've modded it, and like it, and you have a Porsche kill flag on your door
I like my E60 way more than my wife's F10; if I were you I say keep it!
