A couple of cars ago I owned a BMW 523i Steptronic - 1998 S reg. Lovely car it was too and very nippy (2.5 litre 170bhp). It used to fly on kickdown of pedal. This morning I found myself sat at the lights on a fairly quiet road heading towards Manchester Airport. Next to me on the right was an S reg 523i - even was the same colour ! The lights changed and I started off at normal pace not intending to fly off from the lights. The BMW then started to boot it so I did the same. Absolutely murdered it - he had no chance and he was really trying ! That was all in the 0-60 range a well - no need to fly off breaking the speed limit. Now that I'm used to my pride and joy I sort of don't know whether it is actually that quick really but know I know for sure :bannana: They say that diesels are only quick after you've got them to 30mph but I hammered the BMW from a standing start. Easy !
