Brabus! That's it! I checked out their website, and it looks like they modify all models of MBs, not just the one that I saw. Still not sure exactly what it was that I saw, but I'm thinking that it was a late model E class.
As far as resisting/what I drive - I was in a '96 Camaro Z28, in full drag trim, which I suspect is the reason he chose me to pick a fight with. Regardless, I have no desire to race on the street..I have nothing to prove, and aside from safety issues, when I stand on my car, every officer in a 1/2 mile radius knows it, lol.
That said, when he attempted to show off, the car did seem to pull quite a bit more than I expected, and I was impressed considering the kind of car it is, and got the wheels turning in my head again about looking at an E-class wagon for my next daily driver. I previously had a Volvo 850 turbo wagon, and I've fallen in love with the wagon as a daily driver, but often found myself longing for a RWD chassis with a few more ponies under the hood.
