M550i vs Charger

So tonight on my way home, we (myself and my wife) came to a stoplight next to a nice looking Dodge Charger. I could tell it had been worked on, so when the light changed, I took off a little... it took him a minute to realize we were racing... so I slowed down to about 40MPH and then waited for him to take off.

Once he started to pull, I just floored it and pulled away from him at 80 up to 100 when we came to the next light.

He and his wife rolled their windows down and said "What is that?!?!" and then "How many horsepower?? Mine has 500hp at the wheels!!"

My car is 100% stock with 1,080 miles. I sure love this car.

I am sorry but I would not brag about speeding in that fashion on a public road in an Internet forum.

People, take it to the track!

Off my proverbial soapbox

I think he was probably not honest about having 500whp, he would have definitely pulled on you with that much power

I agree with you... makes me wonder if it's a local shop (small town) with inflated dyno numbers to make everyone feel better. LOL
