surprised myself today

had a go against a hard driven 550m or 575m (debadged) and managed to stay with him upto a decent lick - 3 figure speed on my private highway
he was going for it and i loved the look on his face when we had slowed and i passed and he realised I was JUST a 335 and NOT an M3
as the advert says PRICELESS.....
he had been showing off earlier but it did sound gorgeous!!

I was down your neck of the woods today Charlie, I'd heard rumours of a private highway, d'you think I could find it!

I saw some nice 3er's in the Quays.
