I don't usually do this.....but !!!

A guy at work has been badgering me ever since I got my V6, to race him in his german heap (a re-chipped 328i Sport). So yesterday I finally agreed and we set off down the road to get the engines warmed up. We got to a nice quiet stretch of dual carriageway and let it rip....all I could see in my rear view mirror was his red face getting further and further away......aaah such bliss

I was driving a 145 Cloverleaf yesterday and arriving at a set of lights I noticed a bright yellow 3 series compact come up the outside. This particular junction is 2 lanes for straight on going into one after 200 yds and in 1/4 mile is another set of lights.

So, on green I set off gently and let him pass slightly but not fully, looked at the badge, ah, 318 Ti, I'll have that!

So we roll up to the next set of lights, me on the inside again. Again you have approx 200 yds after the junction to merge. On green we set off together, BM on the outside, window down I could hear the engine screamin', I'm in second foot not full down so decide to change to 3rd and floor it.

Arrivederci BMW!!!

At the next roundabout which is well off camber he came screamin up behind me, I looked in the mirror, and there was thrusty ****** twitchin' all over the place while I screamed away.

Happiness is a Beemer beaten!
