Now that's just bullying! ;) The Gran Prix is just a snack, the 328i & the A6 should be lunch. Boxsters too. //M's deserve a bit more respect. It's easy to humiliate wanker BMW and Porsche owners who don't understand their cars' capabilities and weaknesses, assuming you know yours. Have you been to the "Viggen Flight Academy" yet? But beware on the Mass Pike, they have some very stealthy unmarked cars, like a Lincoln (Mark V?), Camaros, SUVs. Look sharp and use a V1. > My other Viggen moment: getting completely smoked by a Toyota Supra. > You can't win them all. I've annoyed a couple of 911 drivers by being able to mostly keep up with them in my Abbottized '97 SETC (w/BFP, Trionic & springs). I've also been hammered by a Nissan 300ZX twin turbo at speed, at the end of the Merrit Turnpike in CT. Wow is that a fast car! And only some brake cooling ducts and one tiny badge on the back to distinguish it from its slower sibling. Dan
