First big boy kill in the M240i

After a full month of ownership, I finally got chased down by a worthy opponent. I was out running around earlier tonight and spotted a grey C6 Vette way back, zigging and zagging through traffic. I was cruising along around 60-65 and got a little excited when I saw the potential run. I knew something was going to go down. He caught up quickly, then slowed a bit in my blind spot. I had my driver's side window cracked and as soon as I heard him hit it, I followed suit. After a split second of turbo lag, he was fully in my left peripheral, but not for long. We went from 60-65 to 100-105 (traffic ahead) and I pulled an easy car length. We caught the light a quarter mile ahead and he wouldn't even look over. Think he was a little upset he got smashed by a Baby Bimmer, lol. Pretty sure he was stock, but they still trap 113 all day, so I'm pretty confident I'll trap 115 mph when we finally get a dry track day. Plan to dyno, too. Burger's test 340i with just a JB4 put down 380/380 (Dynojet STD) wheel on a 320/332 stock crank rating. The M240i is rated 335/369 crank stock, so I'm guessing I'm around 395 whp (more like 380-385 SAE) with JB4/intake and not sure on the torque.

Yeah, I'll have to start a thread on it! Fun car for sure. I'll always love the TL though. As awesome as the ZF 8 speed is, I still miss driving manual.
