540i/6 vs 335

I always wondered how my 97/540i/6 with Mark D chip would do against 07/335.
Today I found out.

My car had four people total weight about 520 pounds and 3/4 tank of fuel I also have 185,000km on the odometer.
The 335 had only one occupent around 200 pounds and 1/2 tank of fuel with 6,000km.

He was ahead of me by 2 car lenghts, I didnt even think of racing, I was just in a hurry.

We were both rolling about 20kmh when both of us nailed it at almost exact time. By the time we hit 180kmh we were side by side.

He was shocked that my car was pulling on him, so was I.

I was there and it did.
He was pushing hard.
I did not expect the outcome.

I dont understand why it's so hard to belive.

not that I don't believe you, but we've seen 335's keep up with E46 M3's and we know that E46 M3's are really close with E39 M5's. and we know that E39 540's can't hold a match to their counterpart M5's. SOOOOooo, I suspect that the 335 driver didn't know how to drive or wasn't shifting at redline or something along those lines.

There are just so many unknowns when you don't know the other driver.

Sorry I beat e46 M3 at higher speeds, I have done it a few times.

The problem with the 540i it loses too much time from a dead stop, since it does not have semi slip dif.

The 335 was trying and he was shifting at redline, he confirmed it.

540i/6 can run w/ E46 M3 at high speeds. There are E46 M3 owners on bf.c who will attest to this. One guy owned a 540i/6 before switching to a E46 M3 and said that up top they're equally fast.

hmmm, learn somethign everyday. So I guess M5 is a bigger beast on the highway than I assumed.

So maybe it's possible.

IMPOSSIBLE! i've seen a 04 545i vs 335i and 335i had him for about one car length, so i know that a 545i can easily beat a 540i, and im talking stock.
