I know what probably happen, It happened to me a couple of weeks ago, I was just cruising around about 120km/h in some curvy roads, the next day someone told me that I had raced a SEAT Leon and he was saying he was able to keep up with me and that the new M isn't really fast, It was so funny I never noticed the guy, I was just cruising enjoying my car, next thing I know some dumb guy was "racing" with me, so yeah, he probably didn't put any attention to you or your car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like your Z is a little quicker than you thought does the vert weight more than the coupe?

FYI, for the last two years, Motor Trend states the Z4 Si 0-60 5.1 sec.

"Cruise along at a lazy 2200 rpm, then tip into the power, and the ear-tickling hhhHrRrRrRrR engine note climbs melodically-and lazily. Is the tardiness due to BMW's unusual Valvetronic throttling or the long crankshaft's mechanical inertia? Hard to say, but whatever it is, it plays heck with gear changing as you constantly have to meander the shifter waiting for the revs to catch up, either up- or downshifting. Ironically, this makes for a nice match with the shift mechanism's stubborn notchiness. The Z4 was handily the quickest in a straight line, goading the flat- and V-6 cars with a 5.1-second 0-to-60 dash that bested them by a half-second or more."

0.2 of a second faster for the Z4 M is not that much for $6,000 and if you were sleeping at the light, you couldn't catch up.
