Mein Auto: 528i
Got smoked by a Toyota Prius

On the Jersey Turnpike just past Clara Barton rest top northbound. I looked up and it was talling me so as I was moving over it cut over to the right and did a power bash on me. My 328xi 2011 had no response so no I move over for Priuses. Oh, I have the steering wheel click now so in it goes for that and two cup holders. Then moving on to Porsche 991. Just venting, but yeah going to 991 in a few months.

2011 Prius hybrid 0 - 60 = 9.7 sec. The 328 should be much better than that. Were you coming back from Home Depot with a load of paving bricks? I'm quite sure that I saw a YT video of a "modded" Trabant wasting a late model Porsche (Russia).

If I find, and post it will you change your mind?

I suggest you enter upcoming Speed channel special "Are you faster than a hipster?" Make sure you have your title in hand.

Bye. Enjoy your 991. Must say if you have this problem with your 328 I think the odds are high you'll have the same problem with your 991.

Will have Fairfax BMW take a look at her. Made no sense actually. Kick down failure? Who knows. Bright side was I followed the Prius rest of the way to the Holland tunnel exit so I made Edgewater in 3.5 hours from DC...not bad. Oh, btw, Jersey 17 surface has caused me kidney failure. 991 purchase in the works for a while though. I've enjoyed my little beemer. Kicked ass in the snow down here. Always wanted a porsche so 991 without IMS issues was the only way to go. Had no idea Priuses, or that one, could go so fast. Respect

It sounds like he had too much of a head of steam on you for you to overcome. Pruis seem to be pretty decent once they get rolling!

I always chuckle when I see aggressive Prius drivers. What a waste of Lanthanum.

I can never believe a Prius can even come close to out taking a BMW 328i. This car has more than enough power to smoke a Prius with a 10 second head start.
Does the car feel sluggish in any way? seems very weird and wonder how ?
These BMW's are quite preppy, and first off line at the lights, and passing power even in my E46 is excellent !

Doubt it, but I'm sure there was a JB-something special under the hood/battery/whatever

Sounds like the time I got smoked by a Ford Aerostar minivan circa 1994...of course, I was walking along the sidewalk at the time. But still, no less embarassing.

Just went out and redeemed the reputation of all e9x'ers. Absolutely wasted an old woman in a Prius in a good old fashioned stop light drag race. Even gave her a head start. Pulled about 47 car lengths on her. You should have seen the stunned look on her face at the next light. Mods are JB4 and DCI running map 5 with 40% E85. I think the E85 is what gave me the edge in this one.

My N54 335i is stock with JB4 on map 1. How do you think I would do against this Prius? Do I need E85 to have a shot?
