I was pulling out of a side road and a Fiat 500 Abarth went past. I pulled out behind him, and as we entered a deristricted road, he floored it. Now l am not into this kind of thing normally (honest) but l soon caught up with the guy, and absolutely wiped the floor with him. Never had the Z3 flat out in third before, but l can say this, removing the CDV stopped the clutch slip when changing up from second, and the Fiat didn't stand a chance. Damn, this car is fast. And l just came from a Lotus Elise 111s. The BMW 3.0 engine is an absolute gem.
