Holy crap!! I still have a huge smirk on my face due to this "incident"

So i was driving back to school on I-5 after the long weekend when I see this nice lookin' bimmer get on the freeway...closer inspection revealed 4 exhaust pipes. M5
BABY!!! Needless to say I almost peed myself, but thinking i may have been imagining it I slowed down and waited for the guy to catch up. There it was, one of the
most beautiful sites i have ever seen...big 18'' wheels, fat tires, 4 meaty tailpipes, and of course the M5 emblem.

So for the next few miles i was pacing him in the other lane just checking out the car from all angles, and finally i get the guy to look over at me...i must have had the
dumbest looking smirk on my face as i gave him a big thumbs up, took over drive off and floored it.

I quickly gained about 2 car lengths on him as he was probably securing his seatbelt for take-off. Even from where i was i could hear the roar of the car as he went to
Wide Open Throttle. Next thing i know there was this black blur tearing by me...he must have hit at least 140 before he slowed down.

So...there ya have it...THAT'S how to get roadkilled. Not by a Camaro, not by a Mustang, not by an SVT Lightning....by a friggin' BMW M5...WOO!!!

Greg, same story but with a new Mustang SVT. A very unsuspecting driver he was. I creeped up on his left on the interstate. He was doing about 75 at the time. As I "inched" forward about half a car length, the race was on. I heard his "8" open up. I dropped the beast into 4th and passed him in a few seconds...I hit the brakes and got back even and he still wasn't satisfied and nailed the horse again. No match for the dragon under the 5 hood. I left his blank stare many car lengths behind. The best part was he had his girlfriend (I assume from the age)with him. I would have loved to hear "that" conversation! There's nothing like the "sleeper" M5.
