I was on the 403 heading west to hamilton, and I saw a brand new maxima drive by with the xenons and everything. I pulled up beside it and dropped it into 3rd and he went and was pulling away! I know they have like 255bhp, they are quick.

I raced my brothers old 2000 maxima off the line and I beat him because he was doing major front wheel spin. Now he has an '02 M3, and I won't be racing his anymore.

my coworker has the older one 220hp 2000/2001 not sure but it's automatic.

we raced like hundred times and from standing start i get him by half a car cuz mine is stick. but on the highway it's dead even, he can't get away or i can't pass him. ho ever punches first stays first.

but didn't try those new ones out but by the numbers they are quicker.

i had the chance against the new altimas on the highway too. the 2.5l no problem but the 3.5 is a big problem no chance against that one

They are pretty quick especially with the 6spd. 02 6spd gets 0-60 in 6 sec flat!!. not shur about 1/4 mile , but they are fast cars. One of the best V6s in the world too. watch out for any maxima 1992 and newer w/ manual trans, you would be surprised how fast they are. what can I say, it is the "4 door sports car"

bimmer can take it in the curves though...:D

AHHHHHHHH. I miss my maxima now!!!!!!:( She was a 99ES with a ton of stuff done to her! That thing was pretty damn fast..... Oh well, she had to go, her time was up (actually the lease was up.....lol). But man I got MAD respect for maxipads!!!!!! I actually ended up selling it over maxima.org to a guy in Denver Colorado who treats it like his first born son, which is nice to know. We still keep in touch a little bit. I should post some old pics of her!

When you have a beast that can put out 210+ hp it's pretty hard to be supreme.

exactly but the X5' is sooooo fastttttttttt compared to other SUV's even the 3.0 which seems slow its not, but the 4.4 is a killer not only in a straight line but corners to, its has got such stiff suspension i was so amazed, and the 20" optional wheels with low profile tires help as well.

ofcourse i would know when the serious looking face when he look at me at 160km/hr. i guess if we were at 20km/hr that would be different. i could've race him with my 10speed with one human power. hey you didn't read the rest of the part when i ask let's race somebody when i was with him in the 323i. he always chicken out. how about that!. you can't be serious that 323i is only good to race a mini van. hallllllo!

I think it would have been a different situation on the highway versus somewhere that is more congested.
