Default BMW 7 series went down

So I was out cruising with a buddy sat night and we came up next to some guy with his girl in a brand new big *** 7 series BMW. No revs were exchanged because honestly most people look at my car and laugh (even though it looks sharp). So the light turns green and I gun it a little and let the tires burn. He gets the idea and we both floor it and I hit the nitrous. He'* right next to me for a bit then as I shift into 2nd he gets ahead by about a foot. We get into high 2nd and my car takes off, probably because I didn't purge the nitrous before launch. By 75mph he'* sitting at my back bumper and I hit my hazards to let him know he'* lost. It was great! This was the first car I've used the nitrous against. Funny thing is I'm not even running at full boost (Because of my little adventures with an intake) and the nitrous is FAR from tuned properly. Wonder what would happen when I get it all working...hmmm

Good Kill.
The 7 Series may be heavy but the 325 hp V8 pushes them to 60 in a little over 6 secs.
The 438 hp V12 might have been more of a challenge.
The must be fun.

Ya...Turtle is right, the new V12 hauls. Even the 740i sport is a monster powerful sedan. Good thing you had N20, or else it would have been a different story..

Sorry...The BMW 7 series is my fave car (after the Bonne of course )

Great kill tho...enjoy the laughing gas...

I don't mess with anything that say BMW M or anything that has V12 on it!

Nice. Take any win you can, even with the bottle.

M series! Saw a video of a M5 and 911GT3 on a track in Germany. Whoa! The M5 made the GT3 look like it was standing still. 911GT3 is a N/A race car, makes the 911GT2 twin turbo look slow!
