Default BMW vs. ~177hp!!!!!!!!!!! Who won?????????? READ THIS!!!!!

I was dirving home today after detailing a Dr.'* 2001 Mercedes CLK. I drove it to her office, picked up my car and drove home. On the way, I was about to turn left to go onto the main higway, but I saw a silver BMW at a red light that was going straight. I thought I'd get killed if I tried to race, but I remembered Will'* kill and decided to pull up next to it on the right. I noticed it was a four door, and it was probably a 95 at the earliest, maybe 96, to a 99 model. I thought I'd get owned. But we waited about 1 minute, and when it turned green, we both stepped on it! For the first 3-4 seconds his front end was up to my rear wheel well or close to it. I couldn't believe I started so fast! But then I had to switch lanes (was a 3 lane road) since a van was in front of me. All the while we were both flooring it. After passing the van I began to pull away from him.! In no less than 10 seconds I saw him completely in my rearview!!!! I pulled in the left lane where he was since there was another red light and it was open. I looked back and saw him go all the way to the right. I could NOT Believe I just killed a f'n BMW!!!

BUT WAIT!!! He just got creamed by me and I knew he'd try again. I saw him inch up at the red, and figured he had a bad start the last time, so if I raced again I'd could probably lose. But I said f- it. It turned green, my tires squeeled a bit off the start, but I pulled away AGAIN!!! I WAS SO F****N HAPPY AND THRILLED!!!! I couldn't believe that my 170hp engine, with basically only a 180 stat, stock replacement K&N, and Taylor wires/ACDelco plugs beat this guy!! What would a BMW of a 96-99 have? I wish I checked the back to see if it was a 300 series or 500, but I did not know I'd win and tell of it here. I used to avoid racing BMW'* before since I didn't want to get killed. But I killed this guy, TWICE!!! Damn it was fun
