Lightly modded S4 TII vs BMW 330ci, maybe

S4 TII with catless exhaust, my own personal streetport, Rtek 2.1 ECU (although untuned), running ~12psi on stock turbo (with enlarged wg). Suspension mods, but not particularly relevant.


What I'm pretty sure was a BMW 330ci. I didn't spend much time behind him so I couldn't get a good look at the badge. Tail lights were pretty rectangular with illuminated secondaries below them (with headlights on). Very much like this:

The specs sound about right for how he did...

ANYWAY, I was in a bit of a rush to get somewhere on the interstate and I see this car come up behind me as I'm waiting for someone ahead to get out of the way. I romp on it, dingleberry follows suit. He followed me for a good 10 minutes or so, only ever catching up when I had to slow for traffic. My best guess at the time was that he was topping out around 120mph, poor guy But for apples to apples, even when we'd jump at a clearing I pulled away from him from the start. He pulled up next to me once when I was waiting again, but because of the nearly opaque window tint I couldn't tell if he was having fun or mad that my beat up 25yo Mazda was kicking his modern BMW's ***. Eventually we just went our separate ways. I was smiling all the way home

I actually raced one of these a few months ago. He was mildly modded. I had Rtek 1.7 550/720 injectors, walbro, hks cone, dp and apexi n1 exhaust running 5psi. I didnt destroy him but beat him pretty good.

Could have been a 325 or 328Ci also, which are pig slow enough that a modern mini van can beat. the 330Ci is slightly quicker, but nothing impressive with a 6.5 0-60.
