Hit 140 with an M3

Cruising down the freeway going 80 because I decided to go for a cruise. I see those halo lights in my rear view mirror and he passes me going 90. I catch up and cruise right next to him for a while. After the next bend the freeway is clear and he decides to go full throttle. It takes me a second to downshift into 5th gear and I chase after him. I finally catch up after he lets off at 120 but there was plenty of clear road so I decide to keep my foot down. I get to about 140 and I hit the brakes because of the traffic ahead. M3 caught up with me later and we cruised for a while until he exited. I wish I could have hit the limiter but maybe another day hehe
