I think i juss got toyed around by a 745..
This happened in Garden State Parkway and i was cruising
down the road to go home with my girlfriend next to me.
All of sudden i see two cars coming mad fast with xenon lights.
One was 745 with a chick next to him also and the other one was the Maxima(old version)
As soon as 745 saw me he slowed down and stared at me
to get a race going on. I first didn't feel like racing a 7 series
knowing it'd be faster than my 330Ci. But then this guy kept
on slowing down and staring at me. so i said to myself let's
make it a one last quick race. so i start speeding up and there
it started... as soon as i hit 95 i see this 745 flying rite by me!!!
and my girlfriend's sitting there laughing her ass off.. and said
you little.. you juss got your ass kicked!! I got mad pissed so i down-shifted to 4th whilegoing 95 miles... and start pulling away from him a little.. as soon as i grinned at my baby and said how about that?? this guy flew by me again!!! Finally we got to the toll booth and had a chance to race from a complete stop. But this little ****head got a head start and left before i even got a chance to put my gear into the 1st.. so by hitting 6000rpm on each gear i caught up to him pretty fast and went past him and a mile later i had to get off so i gave him a hazardous lights and left..I never knew 7 series were that fast... it was very embarassing moment...:banghead:
I realized once again that i really need some performance mods done to my car... Anybody else here raced a 745??? and Do you think i will be able to handle 745 if i slap an intake and a chip on it?? I don't want to have to lose again!!! especially when my girlfriend's sitting rite next to me!!!:banghead: :confused:
btw my car is bone stock... as in performance wise:bawling:

745i is FAST!! My friend has a 02' 540i auto (he's a BMW sales) and he was racing this guy in a 745i on the freeway, they were kinda head to head up til' 100mph before the 745i dissappeared from his site. And man I tell you he was impressed by the product he's selling.

WHAT?! man, HELLS no!:confused: :huh:

I have raced an e65 745 twice, and I still kicked their ass, pretty much stock except for my exhaust.:confused: You guys must be running either automatic cars or just didn't know how to drive.

when the e65 745 short wheelbase version is in sport mode, I don't think a 330 can race it and win. I've driven the 745i and it is a stunner. Same with the old 7, I had a 740iL and I kicked a 328Ci's ass easy.

Ok...from a dead stop...I will romp a 745 till about 70. If you dare race a 540i or a 745/740 from a roll of around 30 mph....you better have a car that runs high 13's in the 1/4. There is no replacement for displacement. :dunno:

It's important to note in this thread that the 1 place where the 745 will absolutley SMOKE you is in the $100k - $0 race in your wallet!!
