my first race on the street... almost

so this guy pulled up to me today at the light in a beautiful M5... I glanced over and thought, finally, my first stoplight race...
of course I was hoping not to run against a m5 but what the hec....

sadly, he did not go at the green, a mile up the road, I slowed for tracks and there he was, this time he got on it..... wasn't a race but... man that thing sounded good, I couldn't even hear my 335 at all, it was all roar from the M5....

I'm still waiting for someone to try me on the street one day.. and they don't .... maybe because I'm in a sedan.....

Most M5 owners just buy the car for the looks. I saw this teenage kid driving his dads M5 like a moron weaving in and out of traffic the other day during rush hour. I know it was his dads car because it had M.D. plates on it, unless the kid was doogie howser. He actually cut someone off in the left turning lane so he could switch back to the straight away lane.
