    BMW M3 Killed

    Driving back from a friend's house Christmas Eve, I pull up to a Red Light next to this pretty nice M3 (clean, not riced out). The guy rolls down his window (his gf/wife/significant other was smoking hot by the way) and yells over to me (my windows were down cause it was about 60 out) and says "Is that thing fast?". I responded with, "Do you want to find out?". He then revved at me and I revved back.

    Before I go on, I want to mention that my Transmission is f***ed...3rd Gear Clutch Fork is bent and 4th & 5th Gear Syncros are shot.

    Anyway, so the light turns green and i launch from about 2k, I don't like burning my clutch for no good reason. I pull on him and rev it out to 6k, then when I try and shift, it doesn't want to go into 2nd, so I left it down to 4k and it goes to 2nd. By this time he's caught me, I then rev it to 6k again in 2nd. Once again, it doesn't want to go to 3rd right away, so I let it drop down to 4k before it goes into gear. Once again he pulls next to me and I pull away once I got it in gear. This continues up to about 150 and I'm about to shift to 6th, but decide to let off cause I've obviously won (he was about 2 car lengths behind me by this point). I expected him to be all good about it and all, but no...he flies past me and flips me off. My only conclude that he thought I was messing with him, when it was really my shitty transmission.

    Anyway...it was fun and he was officially killed...lol.

    Yeah, after this incident, I moved upgrading my tranny up the list of things to do.

    well good kill anyways. Those m3s have been quicks for a long time. My buddies 96 smoked a brand new SRT4 in a 1/4mile a couple years ago.

    Nice kill, I messed with one a few months ago. We were going up a ramp and he got on it on a tight curve which left my non cornering GTP way behind. I stayed on it a but but he got too much of a jump so I just gave up. I'm sure from an even start I could have hung with him. Then he just stayed on it coming up to a ramp. A car that didn't realize he was going 100+ pulled into his lane and he had to hit the shoulder. I would have felt bad if they would have wrecked because I kind of egged him on to race. Still he was well ahead and should have got out of it.

    How fast are those things?

    Either way they are both pretty quick. I know the 95-00 runs 14s to 15s depending on the trim, if its a 2 or 4 door or a manual/auto. The newer ones run around low 13s.

    um the difference between a 4.6 0-60 and low 13s quarter is dramatic from high 14s ....a second is huge.....i remember the 95s being a lil faster though ...i thought they were low 14s

    Oh yea a second is a lot but like I said both generations are pretty quick. I still consider a 14 second car quick and a good kill.
