Definitely expected the outcome it resulted in but was still a friendly run regardless. 2018 X5 M from a second gear roll absolutely decimated the little bimmer inspired hatch and kept pulling all the way to gapplebees. What do you expect though ;) mid 3 second range 0-60 and 11s-12s 1/4 times haha. Would like to see if the car can at least hang a little after jb4. These cars are no slouches but definitely not the fastest things on the road. The overall driving experience is what makes the n shine!

It blows my mind that cars like the X5 M have a substantial market value at all. There are more "performance" SUVs on the market than actual sports cars these days. The world is going into decay when Ford drops the Fiesta ST and Focus ST and replaces them with an Edge ST. An Edge ST; WTF?! To some extent, I can reason high powered German cars because their unrestricted autobahn can actually be used with them. Here in the US, they're just uncomfortable SUVs. You can have fun on onramps, but that's about it. The center of gravity s so out-of-whack that they're useless on backroads. These cars are just overpriced compromise. Get the right tool for the job and stop encouraging the manufacturers.
