I think the pair of you should get together. Scrabble maybe?

if the cl's transmission doesn't fail during the race, and it's front wheels can get traction, i'd say it's a drivers race.

If both 6 speeds, will be a good race. The CL's trap around 98-100, 330 is 96-98.

Why bother racing? I don't bother racing anyone.

I like my car and I like taking it on twisty roads and following the limit. I pay no heed to the 'caution' (yellow) speed suggestions. Ramp may say 60kph on a yellow sign and I will still do 100-120kph! In Ontario the yellow caution signs are just that and are not the limit.

Acura CL will win of course because it has VTEC!! It might be close until VTEC kicks in then the CL is long gone!

2006 330i  [4.50]
Acura CL Type-S versus BMW E46 330Ci: http://www.caranddriver.com/comparis...ns-choice.html

BMW was slightly faster in a straight line, and a lot faster in the "lane change maneuver," though C&D noted that the Acura did well for a FWD car. E90 330i is a bit faster than the E46.

when I had my 330 i raced a TL-S once, and it was pretty much nose/nose. I'd say it's a drivers race, neither one are speed demons by any stretch.
