this rarely ever happens

this happened to me once...

i was driving a 335i loaner from the dealership. some black '92 / '93 accord (lowered, rims, and probably no muffler as it was so noisy) goes beside me at the stoplight, revving the engine, obviously daring me to race. fairly empty stretch of road, made sure things were 'safe', so i thought, ok lets do this. the light goes green, and we're off!

i wasn't even at WOT (prob 3/4), and this dude was furiously trying to keep up. all this time i was laughing my ass off in disbelief. i even let off the gas to let him feel like he beat me.

then, at the next stoplight, i smoked him.

While he's behind me, he decides to turn on his PA loud speaker on his truck and tried to talk to me then he started talking shit about my car how it sucks and his is better. So after that, he started harassing me about the car, then was right on my ass when we started moving and would floor it then slam on the brakes, then he cut someone off and pulled up next to me. He asked me to race and I gladly said f**k off you prepneck- "rich kids that want to be rednecks and have shotgun racks, lifted trucks, CB radio, Mudgrips, Flowmasters". So then his buddy pulled up next to him in his ford ranger, again, covered in mud also and they stopped and held up the traffic to talk, and as I got into the turning lane into my neighborhood, They raced in the middle of god damn traffic and almost hit the person in front of them. F**king morons. I tried to get their plates but couldn't get them fast enough. How often do you get asked to race?
Yup...not surprise, it's high school stuff .

But really, no one ever really tries to race me. There's a couple of times people would look at me then floor it from light to light every damn block down. I don't do anything but just relax and cruise, I actually find it hilarious lol.

An occasional spirited friendly romp followed by a thumbs up by both parties- that's about it.
I find most people won't mess with 335's for one reason or the other - probably think we're a bunch of dirty pricks
Another good point is how shitty these tri-state area roads are- you could be cruising along in town and if you're not careful BAM!
Not worth it man, not to mention the fact that there is so much damn traffic you can barely move half the time, let alone race

Me personally I have those big ol' decals on the left and right of my rear bumper like those 18 wheelers:

While we're on the topic, I have never had somebody roll down their window to ask me to race.
I have, however, had them roll their window down to ask me if I had any Grey Poupon.
Frikkin weirdos!

First of all you're 16 and you have a 328i? Damnn...

Two weeks ago I was driving at night and out of no where an Audi B6 1.8t just pulled out beside me out of nowhere and started flooring it. He thought I was going to race him, I just smiled

This was a rare occasion btw

This. A month ago, some kid in a riced out civic pulled up next to me at a light and was tailgating me before. He started revving his engine and I did also to get him all hyped up and he thought we were going to race. I watched him fly off to the next light which happend to be red and laughed my ass off as I made a u-trun

Don't get me started on ricers. Where I live (Vancouver), all the kids either have really expensive cars or crap cars that are riced out to the max. I just can't imagine the effort that people take to transform a family sedan to a full out track car look-a-like. Here in Vancouver, modding civics seem like a religion. Huge exhaust tips, type "R" badges everywhere, cheap xenon conversions, blacked out everything just to name a few. The funny thing is, it is not even remotely CLOSE to fast.

My own opinion anyways, everyone's different

Unless your modded i can't think anyone would try to race a bmw. before I had one i had the stigma that it was only wealthy or old.people driving them. I think most people feel the same that dont have one around

Never asked to race. Just people at stop lights or on the freeway pull up next to me, match my speed then gun it. I don't like street racing. But everyone here has done it at least once. I had an A6 next to me about 2-3 stop lights in a row that hit red. We were at the front and there wasn't any traffic. He gunned it every single time an looked over with his buddy like they smoked me everytime. Well, I wasn't racing. Then I just got fed up and gunned it to about 60-70 then backed off back down real slow to about 30 so they would catch up and I could look over at them with the same face. They didn't even pull up. They made a right turn in embarrassment.

my only experience with racing was a cute ass girl in an SS Camaro (new body 2011 - 2012).

we had a little fun but nothing drastic. as I pulled away and let off, she kept going and zoomed by, with a wave.

but i initiated it.

Same here. The multi-tone paint jobs and weird body kits with stock wheels always get me.

Same here. While I am not in school a lot of my customers have kids that are "prepnecks" and it annoys the shit out of me. To each is their own though, if they want to look stupid more power to them!
