    BMW 335i?

    the bmw 335 is, my brother has it. Very torquey comes 320 bhp and m performance exhaust. Only available in u.s problem is hes out of warranty and currently spending $9000 on repairs not sure what happened but older siblings tell you stuff on a need to know basis. he says he,ll run it to the ground. Liked his car though. A bit of lag, but nice and tuneable Funny story, he once put it in sport mode sounded amazing...going through the intersection in LA, steps on it as crossing, turbo doesn't kick in till we reach other side of intersection. "I asked ages ago god dammit "

    Driving like an idiot, azure blue. M5 south.

    Cool, each to their own though. I wouldnt do it without checking for a traffic cop on the overtaking or middle lane. He might be having a bad day! Live and learn.

    did that before and ended up being told off because everyone backed off and i didnt. Also threatened to stick something on me for answering back...Good old days lol....when i used to get followed for ages...intimidation tactics dont work anymore though... I remember my old man being waved on.. But that was in a different country!

    According to PC Perkins it is. If someone is in lane 3 the overtaking lane, you cannot go past him. He needs to move over if traffic is starting to creep up on him. By then someones already up his behind flashing him or tailgaiting. Put it this way if a cop was in lane 3 you wouldnt undertake him would you
