So I was on The Pasadena Freeway....

So I was driving Home with my friend from school and little did I know theres a M6 and a G35 Coupe driving side by side so I decided to play around... SO I decided to join them and saw the G35 is ready to fly.... So I did the honors of punching it and he came after me and when we weere rolling on 85.... We both started going and I was surprised to see that Im actually Literally Neck to neck with him if not a 1/8 car ahead of him..... Is this Possible? I have a 325 but with a 3.0 liter but dont the old coupes have 287 horses? Beamers shit on foos

If you gunned it first you'd have a semi advantage to start off with. That could explain it.

The G35 coupes had 280 or 298 horsepower depending on year and transmission type.

My buddy had a 325i before his current 335xi, and I had a G35 before my G37.

any time we got playful it was never even close. Although in your case, if you potentially got an early start on him and the G35 was 1 or 2 gears off that would certainly help.
