Default made a bmw respect the aurora :D

so im driving down 13, turn left onto 42 (some of you may live in mn, savage/prior lake area) as im turning i pass a middle aged guy in a 5 series. i gave it a lttle gas, and at 45mph he guns it and i do the same. he got as close as my back bumper, by 75 he was still right there. by 85 he slowly started to drop back, 95 comes and part of his cars out of my blind spot, im getting scared now, 100 in a 50, 105 comes and i can see 1 of his headlights in my right rearview mirror. just when im about to let of, he does, so i do too.

between 45-105 i put about a carlength on the 5, as he slowed down i noticed it had the xenon angel eyes w/ square fogs. it was about 1130pm so i never saw the badging, but definatly a 5, maybe 528, 530?? not sure on the models, looked pretty new, but not 2003 new. id say real late 90'*.

no other cars on the road, but faster than i wanted to go. but i didn't want to back down and let him do a fly by....maybe i should have so i could have seen the badging though. oh well, im happy with the rora. a 540 would have chewed me up bad. even this one probably would have taken me from a stop, but i won so its all good
