E36 on the 404 northbound Friday night

I had a "run in" with an E36 on the 404 northbound Friday night.

I made an aggressive move to pass a slow moving vehicle in the left lane. I cut in front of, but did not cut off, someone in an E36. I was moving much faster than either vehicle. No harm done?

After I slow down I notice the person in the BMW is trying to catch up. After repeatedly running away from them and their car, I pulled over into the right lane and slowed down. They passed, got far enough ahead for their liking, slowed down, and exited at Green Lane.

I'm still confused. I don't understand what their motive was or what they were trying to accomplish. Maybe they were racing? There was no pulling up beside me and waiting, no thumbs up, no horn, nothing to indicate racing.

Just having fun?!

I do that all the time, when i'm bored and i see someone drive aggressive i figure they're down for some good ol' cat n mouse (save the lectures). I usually end it with a nod of the head.

I don't remember. Maybe dark blue or black? I didn't even see which model it was. It looked very stock.

It was pretty far north. Like I said, we both exited at Green Lane, which is where the 404 comes to an end.

I was accelerating from around 130 km/h to 220 km/h in 4th gear. I don't dare go faster than that on my 195/65R15 winter tires.
