530i kill?????

Today I THINK I raced a bmw 530i. If he was trying, I beat him. It was close but I was ahead the whole time. I have no clue whether or not they were under full throttle. If not, 530s are really fast. It was an auto bc he was steering with both hands.

Re: 530i kill?????

BMW.com suggests 0-60 in 6.4 for a manual and 6.6 for an auto. I find that hard to believe that the auto is only .2 seconds slower bc BMW manuals are such sporty trannys. I still dont know whether they were under full throttle or not. I can't imagine why someone would intentionally let someone slowly pull away from them.

No I have a regular 3 lol. A speed3 would destroy a 530. They are rated at 255/220. I'm pretty sure now that it was a 525i bc bmw.com says 7.6 0-60 for the auto in those. Like I said, I was slowly pulling away so it makes perfect since that it was one of those. Obviously, a 530i would have a lot of fun toying with me.

Re: 530i kill?????

please consolidate your street racing threads instead of bugging us with a new one every time you may or may not have been "pwned" at stoplights or what-have-you.

seriously.

you don't need a new thread every time you do this, or are generally wondering about your car vs another.

thanks.
