Off-topic but you sure it was an M5, not an M6? M5 is the four-door sedan counterpart to the M6 (like M3 with M4 nowadays).

Either drive like an idiot weaving through traffic like you're fast, because then they feel like they have to humble you...

or sit in the right lane doing the speed limit with the cruise control on, because then they feel like they have to goad you into giving it a try so they can show how much faster they are in a straight line.

Basically, just exist, and it'll happen eventually. There's a more powerful and harassing muscle or luxury sports car out there for everyone...even you, Snake.

Was sitting at a red light with 2 lefthand turning lanes that have a fun wide turn that then goes into one lane after the turn straightens out
after about 1/8 of a mile. Nobody around but me and the car to my left in the other turning lane.
That's a C63 AMG coupe next to me and after I left the light and took the turn quickly, I think my sexy car turned him on because he then
decided to speed up around the turn and eek pass me just as the lanes converged into one I guess to show who is the boss. I learned that
his $80k/500hp car is faster than my $25k/200 hp car but not by much until it gets straight.

I've encountered STIs. Civics, Focus ST, WRXs, you know, your typical enthusiast vehicles on the road. Other Subarus flash their lights and wave saying hi, but none of the above vehicles signals a "Come at me bro". They know my car is slow so why even bother I guess. But trucks, oh man, especially those with the some sort of borla/magnaflow catback. Dodge and chevys in particular, they love to get next to me, floor their magnificent, high displacement, automatic transmission truck and speed past me. Leaving me in a cloud of diesel smoke.

I'm so done with these hyped up mega SUVs with AWD 335 width tires, 9000 hp, and a driver that looks like they shower in cologne.

Make SUVs slow again.. so I don't have to hear launch control on a fkn X5 50i //Mmmmmm Package because the douche wants to race the rice king, I'm literally just trying to get home alive and these SUVs trying to make 2g turns at 30 km because weight is risking my safety!!!!

At least where you are they drive fast. SUVS/CUVS and Priuses (Priusi?) drive slow as fuck on anything but a straight line. And even then they are lagging.

Don’t sleep on those SUVs. The M models have surprisingly amazingly good (for an SUV) handling and power. The X5 is a quite bulky; but the X3 is small enough to drive aggressively. My wife’s X3 on sports mode can almost stay with my BRZ on turns; on straights they’re the same up to 90 but then the X3 picks up; from a dig the X3 destroys my BRZ (even with a good launch).

You might change your opinion on how good they handle when you see them at a track event.. And then there are those X6 M that people seem to legitimately think is a sportscar, while they attempt at making a 10 g turn before they do a barrel roll.

SUVs are out of control.
