Got nothing to do on last sunday evening.So just took my 97 850R out and driven it around.On the highway,( I was doing aroung 140Km/h .There were 3 Z3 with there top opened Passed me and cut me out. So I pressed the sport mode and see how my 850R can Play with them.I belived they were runing at around 180Km/h to 200Km/h.Since I am doing almost 215KM/h and catching up. Traffic slow us down to around 80 km/h.we are all side by side each other. And I found out that the Red Z3 was a Z3M since it got 4 shinny bright chrome exhaust pipes,and a Z3M interior,The other 2 Z3 black and silver , I belive it should be both 2.8 .When the traffic are clear we all started again.the other two were easy to out run them .But for the Z3M took me up to 180+Km/h before I can Passed It.Then I found out that there were a red WRX with a big exhaust running infront of us .So I Passed the WRX and I noticed from my rear mirror the WRX were flashing It's Headlight and join the the run with the Z3M.We were running at around 200Km/h to 220Km/h form almost 3 to 4 KM .Then when we reached the Toll gate. We all line up again .Off the line the Z3M got me 1 1/2 car and the WRX for almost 1 car lenght.The other 2 z3 were side by side beside me but by the time I reach around 90Km/h I already Passed those 2 Z3, And still catching the WRX and Z3M.By 140KM/h I am level with the WRX .And by 150 Km/h I passed it.At around 165Km/H I passed the Z3M.I Pushed My 850R up to 250KM/H++ .By then Those BMW's and WRX are Way back behind my Modified 850R <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><BR>What a Fun Night!!<BR>This is my Frist Z3M encounter .I belive that one is a US specs Car.Not the Euro versions. Otherwise I should been killed by That Z3M!<p>[This message has been edited by JWKC (edited 05-15-2001).]
