Another BMW bites the dust....

So I'm on my way to work this morning, kind of late and kind of pissy, when this guy in an M5 comes up behind me, flashes his high beams, tailgates me for a few blocks and then takes off around me. We are on Olymipic in W.LA, which is a 4-5 lane street heading towards Santa Monica. No traffic.

As soon as he started to pass me, I down shifted into second, go the car up 5k and shifted into third and flipped the switch!! I laid it down nice, with a bark in each gear until fourth, and I was gone! Homeboy had no idea what happened so I slowed down and he caught up and tried again. I sprayed on him again and left him behind. This time when I slowed down he didn't try to pass me.

He stayed behind me until I turned off onto my street.

I think I'll try a 100 shot and see what that gets me next.... aside from a blown engine.
