My heart races as he "thinks he is creeping up" 3 car lengths from me he guns it and I do instantly too. The M3 jumped (as I was in POWER) and I was immediately even and then pulled slowly in front. I went to 4th before him and lost a nose during the shift but then aggresively (noises where intoxicating) pulled hard away...for good. I cut it at 130 and then pounded the brakes and felt amazing G's. Then he caught up and paid his respect with a thumbs up. Then there was the afternoon...320 miles added today.
I guess this is a sneak preview of what is expected for new M3 owners out there
