My M3 vs. G37 coupe

I've had my M3 sedan for over a year and surprisingly the first time I've been directly challenged at a stoplight wasn't until last night. Guy pulled up next to me in a G37 coupe pumping cheezy techno and started revving his engine and inching like in he's in Fast & The Furious. So I looked over at my girlfriend, said "I hope you don't mind?", and she said "By all means..."

Not sure what he was thinking, but the poor li'l guy never stood a chance. I had a perfect launch and smoked the chump within the first 50 yds. Then he just faded into the rearview.

I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often with this car.

I guess that guy did not get "The Memo"...... You can mess with a regular 3 series But don't "F%k with a "M" from the looks of this story his Memo had just got served to him

Sweet story guy

Congrats, nice kill, I've seen more G37s pull up and attempt egg you on into a race, it gets silly if they swing 3 lanes to mess with you.

You made me show one he couldn't stay ahead of me today. I blame you and if I was seen I'm sticking to that story. It was a light grey one just over the skyway heading to Niagara on the lake.

He was weaving in and out of the traffic on the highway so when we got off at the same exit I couldn't resist. He was ahead of me and went for it. I just yo-yo'd up behind him until he gave up. I felt like a child and cursed you briefly through my grin.

My first little race and it was all you're fault
