Okay I can't think of a proper subject since it's so late, but I'll go on with the story.
My cousin came over to give me a lift in his new E46 M3 Phoenix Yellow.
A bit later, he let me test drive his car. I'm still a newbie to driving a manual so I didn't do anything crazy, which I wouldn't anyways cause he would kick my butt
I drove around my residential area. Anyways, getting to the point...
I just exited this 90degree left turn on a residential street around 12am, and then I was on 2nd gear around 2300rpm. I gased it a bit more to feel the power since there was a mini straight. So i brought it up to about 4000-4500rpm? That's about 60km/h?? All of a sudden, as i pear up the road where the intersection was, I saw a cop car parked in the middle of that 4-way stop intersection. I panic and hit the brakes for a second and let the car coast. As I approached the cruiser, he flashed his lights at me. He pulled alongside the car and peered at us. My heart beat was racing because I never got stopped by the cops before. First thing was he asked where I live and where my cousin lives. Then he took our driver's license and backed the cruiser away. My cousin told me to calm down since I was freaking a bit, LOL. The cop car comes back and returns our driver's license. After a 10second pause, he told us that there was a break-in on the street i was driving and then he told that we could go our own way.
Man, that was a heart shaker LOL. Anyways I found it strange how the cops stopped us and let us off, telling us about a break-in. He probably thought we stole the M3, since that street has rich ppl. living on it LOL. That was the only time I opened up the car on the residential street. The whole time I wasn't speeding.
Yes, just wanted to share a STRANGE encounterment with the cops.
