Default I wonder what kind of Bimmer this was?

I was on my way back from seeing The Grudge(decent movie) earlier in my C5, toying around with some chick in a 4.7L GT, looked like a 1997ish model, when to the left of me some piece of **** rice rocket passes. So I drop it to 5th while going 70ish to walk on him, when a Bimmer in the far right lane flies by. After seeing this, I drop it into 3rd and hammer it, etc. etc. Anyways, I had a hard time reeling him in which wasn't expected, so to my delight he slows down to about 50 mph. We hit it and I pull him, but not too hard to about 100 and that was that. So yeah, anyone have a clue what it might be? It looked like a very new model, but it was dark so I didn't see any badges or anything.

Is your Vette stock? If so, I would guess M3.

Yeah, bone stock minus the Corsa exhaust the dealership installed.

Bimmer was a two door or 4 door?

If it was a stock BMW then I would assume an M3 or M5.. Was it a smaller car or more sedan looking?

Even the newer 3series trap about 95mph don't they? Then again so do Acura TLs and v6 Accords. LOL

I am pretty sure it was a sedan, but I may be wrong, that strip of road just conveniently doesn't have any lighting whatsoever.
