Honda Civic (Hatch) Funny to Me...

Never done this before but I said, why not..?

I knew the kid had some turbos and or nitro but like I said, why not. I have never in my whole BMW ownership let a undercover, I think they are called PoS..? Entice...

We start with about 30MPH and he is slow to hit whatever buttons or speed he needs, so I smash him in 2nd gear...

We get up to I think 50MPH and I change to third thinking he gave up Then I hear his Swoosh!, Swoosh!, Swoosh! by then I think I was at 90MPH switching to third and he caught up to me.

No, I was not in M mode. It was fun and we both pulled over and said nice!

End.

The former. Once I hit 90MPH on the city road where cops tend to be I could not chance it so (I wasn't giving it a hard push whatsoever), that's when the Civic caught up.

A few factors:

I was under the 1200 miles. (Not broken in)
I wasn't pulling the gear revv past 5K
I did not floor it, not once

Like I said (I think in my OP), I said let's play. It was funny because the guy was so happy, I did not have the heart to tell him I wasn't pushing it really hard. But that Whoosh, was pretty darn loud.
