Silver Z3 big mistake!

Okay, so it's not quite a race story, but I was in my friends car, Casablanca A4. Anyhow we're just driving around on lesile and sheppard going south on lesile.
All of a sudden, as we get rolling, this silver Z3 1.9L revs his engine pretty high for 1st gear and he passsed us.
Then I thought, this guy probably thought his car is faster than my friend's A4. So my A4 friend starts driving closer to the guy.
One thing I noticed is the PURPLE COLORED rear turning indicators, YUCK! The plate is EYES ONME
So my friend was bored and he wanted to play around w/this guy who probably thought his car is faster.
We drive through traffic and follow his tail, then he makes a rigth hander into a residential road and we followed him all the way to his house. From there we just turned back, but my friend had to the urge to show this guy a lesson if he didn't turn into the residential roads.

Anyways, Anyone recognize the owner of this car? Just a warning to that owner that he shouldn't act all cocky around my A4 friend, b/c his car isn't a stock 180hp car.

He might have had Downing Atlanta Supercharger under the hood.

Nope, Now downing Atlanta supercharger. I have a good ear on engine sounds, turbos, superchargers, etc, and I can imitate the sounds too with my voice

Obviously no supercharger

So what did this guy do to deserve a threat like that? "Just a warning" What the $#@ is that about?

The 4 banger BMW motors NEED to be revved up to get much of anything about them; maybe he just drives like that.

Geesh. First you stalk the guy to his house, and then post threats about him acting cocky on the internet....

I'm just curious as to what *lesson* your friend was going to teach him? About what an idiot he is for racing on city streets?....

Take the racing to the track guys....it's where it belongs.

You guys are starting to sound like Rob....

ANYHOW...
I was waiting for Pat or the track junkies to say this to my thread

Anyways, besides about the stupidity of what happened today, I know for a fact that he was trying to show off. Not only from reving up the engine to his body language, but blarring the music, having the left hand at the 12'o clock position on the steering wheel and changing lanes cutting through traffic, trying to run away and taking the corners quick.
Hmm now isn't that daily NORMAL DRIVING!!!!

I'm not here to say we should punish those who try to show off, but it was a typical action that teenagers do. Personally I don't take my agressive driving out on other drivers, as a teenager myself.

And I think you should cool it on ROB, because I'm sure there are many more idiotic drivers out there w/BMW's and Mercedes who drive like fools and pricks!

Plus, I'm sure any driver has gone through the stage of F**kin' around w/other drivers due to egotism and feel for power. I'm sure you "track'ers" have yourself before you guys started tracking seriously!!

Hey Mike,

I understand there are idiot drivers out there; you just didn't say fully what this guy was doing.

What I hate, are threats made over the internet, specifically when it involves 3000+ lb cars; nobody wins a battle of road rage...and I must admit, if it was me that somebody followed home, I'd be looking for *solutions* of other than a vehicular nature, that's all.

It just seemed a little extreme to me to offer *just a warning* to some guy who thinks he has a fast car but doesn't....that's all.

Remember, there is ALWAYS a faster car out there.

From my own, OLD perspective, I look at the guys who weave back and forth through traffic and hope to heck those guys AREN'T going where I am....rather than following them.

Guys like that give EVERY driver a bad name, and not just the BMW crowd.

As to Rob, well, I know more about Rob that he thinks; I had an interesting conversation with the guy who owned Rob's car before he did (and an even more interesting conversation ABOUT that guy afterward...).

Needless to say, I'm not surprised the motor died shortly after Rob bought it...

Pat

Let's not get into who's dumb and who's not Rob; it's a battle you'll quickly lose. What are you going to do Rob? Beat me up over the internet? I really don't think my credibility is the one at stake here....I have better things to do that posting 2000+ posts on various sites around the 'net.

Shall I go dig up all your posts on DTMpower, Maxbimmer et al about your "240 kph stunts" on various highways, weaving through traffic etc? Yup, that really shows what a genius you are.

I'm glad you're an enthusiast Rob, but you're more extreme than most kids I've ever met; you automatically think that you're a better driver than everyone else, simply because you bought that M3. As I've said before; one of these days you're going to have a serious incident, and I can only pray that nobody I know is on the road while you're losing it...

It's your attitude Rob, and until that changes, I'm not going to *cool it*. If you can't take the heat, then I'd suggest you zip it.

Pat

Well, it's not so much about Allan tracking the car, but more the matter that he street raced the thing endlessly, and was often attempting to out-run the cops.

He now has an E36 Euro M3 which was his brother's car before. He borrowed it one night to go street racing, and ended up getting chased by the police. Being the bright weed that he is, he tried to out-run the cops on city streets, and finally ended up parking his brother's Euro M3 into a concrete wall sideways, doing about $12,000 damage. About the only reason the insurance company fixed the car was because of it being a Euro.

His brother made him buy the car off him then (probably with Mom and Dad's money anyway...).

Seeing as how he treated that car, I can't imagine he treated the E30 M3 too well...so I wasn't surprised when your motor was toast.

Pat
