+1. Completely agree. But it is nice to use that power every once in a while. Haha.


And on the topic of the G37... It's definitely quick, but not really in the same league as the 335i/is - especially when it comes to pickup in higher speeds. The 3er just has WAY more torque... Plus the turbos and MUCH better handling. IMO, the 335 is just a better car in every way, shape, or form.

Rarely. Although the other day, with no one behind me in my lane, a fellow in an S80 decides to pull up along side me in the lane that ends about a 1/4 mile down the road and has to merge. Light turns green and he reacts quickly to move ahead of me in anticipation of merging in front of me.

I don't know what kind of coffee he was drinking at 8 am, but clearly it clouded his judgement in his car's ability.

I got more people wanting to race when I had a 335 than with my M3. I'm 33 years old. I have nothing to prove to any of them so I never take the bait. It's usually some tricked out EVO or STI. I just smile and hope they enjoy their matchbox car.

In all seriousness though, never. Trying to race on Toronto streets is asking for your wheels to fall off.
Lol, brings back the old memories. I think i fluxed up my shocks on steeles before they repaired it... Its nuts how shit the roads can be in toronto.

In the "riceshine state" (Florida), I barely get queues to race. Maybe it's because they think I'm old or I just pass them before they get a chance. In Virginia I really don't care for a ticket so I don't bother at all. In Long Island everyone speeds so there's no point to race. I enjoy the fact that no one tries to race me in this car.

E550 is no slouch! haha. My mom has one, and although it doesn't handle as well as the 3 series... it PULLS!

I feel you about prep/private school tho. A friend got a 100k Range Rover and complained that his daddy didn't get him the Mercedes G55....

lol my brother is still there and one of his friends alternates between the g55, range rover supercharged, sl63, an insanely modded rubicon, and even took a dbs to my house once

all his dads of course. but he's no little bitchy rich kid. he's pretty down to earth and does a lot of good things. actually one of the best kids i've ever met

i guess another kid drives his dads bentley gtc to school every day

Ah yes, 16, when the world was at my feet and I knew nothing.

I drove my friends E550 AMG package coupe this summer. It does pull pretty good, but I didn't care for the exhaust note that much, and the handling was not nearly as good as my e90

Both her and her husband rolled up their windows to turn the a/c on (another hint). So I reved the engine just to make sure they were ready for my hellfire. This WOMAN even pulled up a little ahead of me! I shit you not..at least 1 foot...cheater..i know right? I didn't mind it at first but I got furious I started bursting out swear words almost crying out the window but she couldn't hear me. I. was. that. angry, man. So I threw it in DS, than to M1, honked the horn 3 times...the light turned green and I took off...Never saw her again (probably hiding from embarrassment). Well buddy that was my first stoplight race I won...Call me old fashion, Otruba..but when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.



The guy sitting next to me at work gave me that look, of what's so funny.

Yet another ricer The blue accents behind the hub cap was a nice touch. If I did my math right he should be getting an extra 60hp from those stickers.

Agreed. I reviewed my moms in the General Automotive section of the forum. No exhaust and Mercedes-like floaty handling. It just has so much power haha. I killed my dad in his '09 SL550 off the line with the E + AMG sport (4MATIC sedan).

I would still rather have my 335is any day of the week though. If only for the exhaust and red interior.

Funny enough... More people were egging me on in the E class than in my 3er!! The E550 is a sleeper, and everyone thinks and old person in driving!

I felt too high up in it and I hate the controls in it, too complicated compared to the newer I-drive. The back seat was a lot smaller than I expected for an E class car
