335i coupe got shamed today

Going through a small town...light to light I could tell he was trying to get my attention just ahead of me on two lanes of one-way. At the edge of town we ended up side by side at a red light. I looked over to give a friendly gesture and was ignored by him laughing, his mouth going, and the girl in there with him likely being amused by all that. But, the light turned green and as soon as I let him know I would go if he did...he went for it and never had a chance only able to get perhaps a foot or two ahead of me initially when we were sorting out whether to run or not. I had him beyond then consistently adding distance. Next red light he still wouldn't look over...and that's fine. I was just going to flash him a V, but he was still involved with his lady friend...and I assumed he was making excuses due to viewing his mouth going again and a shoulder shrug.

Great kill, you must've enjoyed it!

And you know what their excuse is right? Although it's possible he told her that he didn't really go at it, if she has the slightest clue about how a car sounds at WOT and she isn't an idiot to not tell the difference between driving fast and racing, even by just looking at her guy, he would look very ridiculous, so their excuse has to be something safer:

Girl: "He kicked your ass honey"
Guy: "Probably heavily tuned, I could drop 30 grand in here too if I wanted"

^ That's exactly what these guys think... lol if they only knew it's just K04...

I've raced a lot of Caymans and Carreras and almost everyone had the same ego, like they're driving a 10 second car or something. When they see a humble GTI creeping away they think (or want to believe) they lost to a heavily tuned car. Few of them are cool though, I had one ask me wtf I got under the hood and I said nothing just a tune and intake and he was shocked, nodded and we parted ways.

Camaros aren't expensive, at least not when compared to bimmers.

Another possible excuse, "I didn't want to push it too hard with you in the car".

Both the vw 2.0 and the bmw n54 i6 tt have impressive tuning potential, even if the bmw driver wasn't aware haha

Good kill on a super tool.

Was about to call BS until I noticed you were K04'd. My full bolt on TSI was a little slower than my stock 335i. Now with my Tune, hot damn.

I too wondered what he was explaining to her....I thought, "I wanted to buy a GTI, but you really liked the Bimmer!"

My giac K04 HO tune gave 285whp and 363 ft*lbs...haven't dyno'd the new DM K04+ tune yet. This is my 0 to 120mph vid with the DM K04+ and is 2.5 sec's quicker than the other tune was. I've compared the vids of both tunes side by side and the time advantage was mostly from 90 to 120:

So you raced a stock 335i in your heavily modded GTi and are impressed that you won? Seems like it would be a no brainer. Now if he had any mods or more so similar mods to you it would have been a different story.

GTI guys are just as bad as Bmw guys. Cant just talk about a race that took place without ego stroking.

↑ Did I sound surprised or even state it?
I've beaten 335i's, 135's and M3's before...even modded ones...so no.

The story, Douche who needs to explain "Ego Stroking", was about his reaction and not at all my astounding accomplishment. I knew I would win...I only gave him the time because of his antics leading up to it. The story only leads to telling of his antics following...which I posted for others amusement. So if you didn't get it, then you don't get it...I get it.
Did any one else get the feeling I was impressed with my "Heavily Modded GTI" beating this 335?

Perhaps one R32 owner has more in common with Bimmer owners???

Geez...I'm too old for this vortex BS!
