Surprised by a 2010 650i

So i was on the highway with minimal traffic (three empty lanes), I was doing the speed limit and out of nowhere, a 650i pulls up and blows by then slows down to match my speed, then signals for a run. We started at about 55mph on up, and to my surprise he pulled about two car lengths. I am currently running the JB4 on map 1, everything else is stock for the time being... Wondering if my jb4 isn't giving me everything or is the 650 really that fast. Not promoting street racing, I backed off at 85... He went well over 100.

The 650 runs 360hp and weighs about 3800 lbs. The E93 weighs 4000 lbs. With the tune on map 1 you are probably 360-375 hp. So no probably not anything wrong.

Well, it IS a twin-turbo V8 he's running. And he could also be running Dinan power mods something like is available for the e9x's.

Isn't the 2010 the old 4.8L NA V8?

A 650i bone stock will slaughter a 335. Why would you even try?

That's the shortest race ever. 55mph to 85mph is like a 3 second race.

^ Had to be a little responsible even if there wasn't any traffic. I feel like after 85 is just dumb on public highways... 85 might be a bit much but with these cars 85 can happen rather quick if ur not paying attention.
