    Cool The Germans are attacking!

    So there I was, making my normal morning commute, just cruising along minding my own business and enjoying having my car back after some recent cosmetic upgrades. Then out of nowhere a pesky bright red Audi A4 (young kid eyeballing me) starts tailing me hard; I get annoyed easy with this as my front bumper just got tagged 3 weeks ago by an uninsured driver so Iím a little over-protective now. So Iím first at the stop light with the German 5 feet off my bumper, I decide to roll hard through first gear to just get rid of my tail. Accomplished, now another German sneaks up beside me on my right at the next light, I look over to see a clean 335i coupe with aftermarket black wheels, I catch the driver trying to figure out what the G is all about, certainly indicating itís on.

    Next, we lock eyes right before the light goes green, I slightly hesitate not to be the douche racing nobody as he throttles down. I roll in hard, my car grabs perfectly on nice dry asphalt and I quickly lunge past the Beemer. Second gear comes up quick with little commotion and I start pulling some more, then I feel the Beemer start inching back once he was in second gearÖinteresting. Next gear coming up and the G keeps on trucking maintaining that car to a car and a half lead but again the Beemer starts inching back to only a car lead. I pull to an already dangerous ~95mph even for a clear Mexican highway and hit the brakes, Beemer followed suit and starts to roll the window down and heís smiling. We both throw the thumbs up and start discussing mods. He asks right away if mine is superchargedÖnope! I say bolt on car, he goes on to tell me his is a twin turbo, down pipes, intake and tuned. I said that was fun, havenít got to play on my commute in over a year. So all in all that was a great way to fully wake up for work, we both said see you around and parted ways.

    Cliff notes: Annoying Audi causes me to lose tail meanwhile attracting Beemer 335i. Beemer and G8 have a nice, fair dig race to ~95, G8 pulls the win by a car minimum even giving up the light. Beemer had nice potential but possibly in need of driver mod. Thumbs up exchanged.

    G8: Full bolt ons, 3.45s/2600 stall best ET (12.46@111.37/1.72 60ft - 900DA)

    335i (N54): 06-10 model 3.0L v6 twin turbo, intake, down pipes and tune (3615lbs,300hp/300tq,stock)

    Great Job! I'd love to be a fly on the wall of our competition's forums to see how post-race they characterize their ass-stomping and what they say about our G8s. At least you got a race. I never do. Was riding in the back seat of my wife's Focus with my 3 year old granddaughter the other night as the wife drove us home from dinner. Look over while we are sitting at the light, and in five cars in the next lane there is a debadged Challenger sounding modded with only the side hemi badge remaining, a 2016 Mustang 5.0 with an aftermarket exhaust, it also sounding pretty competitive, and a Challenger R/T. NEVER when I am in my G8...

    For real, if my girl ever drives my car she always says a mustang/camaro/challenger are trying to race her...nobody while im driving. Yes it would be interesting, then again how often do you think people actually share their beatings vs kills? Like I said I rarely get a race so I've really not lost other than to buddies that you already know with modded G8's, had a C6Z HCI/100shot just freight train me after leaving the track together all in good fun.

    Reminds me of years ago when my wife took Christine* to Florida with her cousin to visit her grandfather. I told her several times, "NO RACING" and "Be careful with the power and braking" because she was driving a suburban at the time. A few months after she gets back we're running some errands and a little Neon or something with a fart can/wing combo zips around the 'burb and she says something about it reminded her of the one she had to put in its place.

    'Scuse me?

    She smirks and explains that while in Florida there was some kid on the road and revving the engine a little at lights, trying to get her to race. She finally said "screw it, I've had enough of this crap" so she punched it from the next light. The kid stayed behind her for the next mile or so and then turned off the road.

    (*Before the cam, so only about 475whp. I'm not sure I'd feel okay with her driving it currently.)

    Default The Germans are attacking

    Video will speak for its self. My 2 runs are at 1:30. The Dig run he started passing me at 120mph. I was pretty impressed. Ran the C5 heads cam intake. TA with bolt ons and heads. The z28 to the far right bolt ons. And a Evo X full bolt ons running E85.
