Just got messed with last night for the first time ever. Somebody in a modded BMW. Sounded like they had full exhaust. It was dark so I couldn't see the model. They came up next to me and then dropped the hammer. They were pulling pretty good considering we were doing 60 already. If there was less traffic I might have obliged.

Ehh, it's just a 5.0. I just moved here a month ago. I really haven't had anyone mess with me either other than some kid in a Acura that saw me leave a stoplight post haste so he felt the need to catch up and give me the fly by. I gave him the Shaka sign at the next stoplight and all he did was mean mug me. Shrug.

I'm sure he had fun telling all his buddies he blew my doors off.

Im sure its all over the Honda forums that you got punked. Now youre gonna have every Honda out here gunning for you because you cant drive. Lol! I went up to the car show the other night with my dad, (69 Z/28 with DZ302, M22 4-speed) and got along side him to just kinda mess around, and right as soon as I got along him, a cop pulled out right in front of us. Lol! Its like they knew something was going on. Everytime we are about to act a stupid, a cop always shows himself. Haha! Oh well...one day.

Just remember, all those kids think Honda Civics and similar are "sports cars".....
Even though they are JUST "Economy Cars"....you could smoke them and bury them in front of a hundred witnesses, and those ricers will still swear they beat you.
There is nothing wrong with those types of cars, but when you start seeing them with cobra stripes and/or imitation WRX/STI hood scoops...well uh...

Yeah, it was the little two door Accord coupe clone from a decade or so back. Not even remotely fast, I've driven them before as my buddy owned one. I would have obliged if we hadn't been in the middle of the city with a 45 mph speed limit. I have no desire to go to jail. He was easily going 20 mph faster than me.

Any thoughts.

I was in a 30mph zone, when I unexpectidly saw a 8 year old civic with a nice paint job and rims, seems he had his wheels slanted out at an angle as well.
Had a better sounding exaust than most civic's but still sounded like a fart can.
As I pulled past him, I decel'd to give him a taste of my decel pop, then accelerated to give him a taste of what a exhaust should sound like...lol...I know mean...but if you are gonna drive a car like that...
I have more respect for a guy who fixes his Civic up without all the cheese.

Too bad they dont realize those late model subies are turbo charged 2.5 litre flat four boxer engines that are very fast.
Now, woth my 1Le I ignore anyone who is "not worthy"....which is 99% of the cars out there lol.
I've got a truck that'll show you a good time.

Track pack doesnt change anything that would help with the 1/4 mile.
Not like the 1LE where they change the trans and rear gearing.

only once has someone tired to "race" me, this was a guy in a 13' shelby GT500 with a licence plate bracket that said 750hp, don't know if he had 750 horses but it would'nt have mattered. Why even waste the gas.

When I had my Rally Yellow 2010 1LT coupe it seemed like every ricer in the area was buzzing me like a swarm of bees, now that I have the 2012 1LT Convertible it seems it attracts older BMW's and older Mustang GT's. Go figure...

They make 700whp with a pulley, tune and x pipe. Those things are ridiculous.

Exactly. The new GTs are 420 hp in a lighter car.

i couldve made a commercial for camaro a few weeks ago. driving down a 3 lane city street at night chatting to my gf, i rolled up to a stop light. just as i started slowing down i noticed it was me...and 5 other built terminators around me and no other cars! i looked at my gf and said "ohhh this is soooo on!" we pulled away and drove a little before one pulled up next to me. took a look ahead, no cars in sight...he hit it....and well , the commercial wouldve been pretty good! hehehehe. when ya mess with the bull ya get the horns , in front of your 4 buddies lol.

Saw him this morning and he behaved himself.
muhaha
Notice the same thing..........do you notice that people going slow in the left lane of the highway tend to get out of the way pretty quick, too?

...I will point out it's even worse with a ZL1....people in "fast" cars wouldn't even acknowledge me...unless they wanted to compliment and talk about it.
