i was running SSTT w/ K&N drop in, shell 93 about half a tank left, i was alone in the car, i am AT.

it was a blue, manual of course, e92 m3, 18 inch rims, 2 people inside maybe 3, didnt really look in the back of the car windows.
was waiting at the light and actually thought it was another 335i/328i, but saw right away that the noise it made wasnt a 3 series haha. but when i saw it was a M3 i was like OMG, took traction off and put it in manual mode, i acutally got really excited esp since it has been in the mind of the forums for a while. i actually didnt think he was gonna race, by 10mph he was still in first, i was in paddle mode and was holding 1st aswell, he gave it a little and shifted in 2nd, i was aswell agressive and followed him side by side, and shifted into second, he edged forward and i did aswell, then he just blasted the engine open and i went right after him instantly, the race was on, i jumped half a car right away while he shifted and then pulled about another half and by the time we knew it, it was 90mph and there was another stoplight so we stopped. one thing i noticed, the thing is loud, i swear the sound def owns the 335i exhaust 100x and the AT def owned the manual shifter and the driver haha.
anyways i rolled down my window and began some BMW friendly talk, i wanted to give it another try from a dead stop to w.e. but the guy said, he didnt wanna beat on it too much more cuz he got less then 1k on it and he is still getting use to it. but it was such a quick race, from 2 fast cars, the AT and extra TQ from my SSTT 335i, def made up the low end jump and the AT def helped, wether or not he was experienced MT driver who knows, of course there is many factors. but it was fun while it lasted. glad i got to see what the new M3 can do. i still love the e92 m3 and my avatar will stay

anyways enjoy the read and SSTT FTW.
lol... if i was him i would have pushed my friends out of the car and said lets go again 2 extra people in my 335 with v2 makes it a totally different car imo...

I can hardly wait to run an M3, especially from a stop or 1/4 mile or corners.

I may have a chance to play with one this Saturday, if he's up for it.

Sniz, that picture made my day.

In other news, I need a tune. You'd think that for someone who's on e90post everyday, i'd have one by now, but that's probably why I don't have one by now. I guess i'm just too old school for resistors, too power hungry for sstts, too impatient for helix, too horrified by vishnu, maybe a xede? That was just a rant, pleaaase don't voice your opinion, the OP might slay me for thread jacking.

Great run, OP! Congrats!
