Why o why do they do it?
Driving along my usual commute A509 from MK to Kettering - twisty road with about four overtaking places - I was the last in a queue of 10 cars behind an artic lorry. I look in my rear view mirror and see a 5 series touring roar up to my bumper and stick there about 6" away GRRRRRRR THEN at the next overtaking spot he goes past me and the next two cars and forces his way in between the next cars in the queue causing them to brake hard and everyone else to do the same (except me cos I saw this coming and dropped back a bit).
Net result - he gains about 50 yards p****s off at least three drivers (plus the one coming the other way - who thought he was going to be wearing a BMW) and STILL has to follow the SAME queue behind the lorry for another 8 miles where the traffic splits into four different routes.
My solution to BMW drivers/fuel shortages/carbon footprints all in one go.............the government bring out an emergency law which confiscates and bans all BMWs forever, all their drivers get to wear orange jump suits with "BMW drivers are t**ts" on them and are forced to clean up all the crap beside the roads (which mainly comes out of the windows of 3 series I'm sure) AND banned from driving ANY car EVER again.
Net result less traffic - more fuel for all of us - huge carbon savings.
Car was better appreciated as it always is through the village of Shillington this morning....the kids there all have a good look....every now and again get a nice wave from a grey GT on the road that leads to Shillington....
Its those 13 toed freaks in the village of Offley - that needs to be expunged from the gene pool.
No No No - there is NO excuse for driving a BMW - even if it's been given to you by a rich uncle who's mad. Sell/swop it without ever getting in it or touching it otherwise .......................you will come out in funny blotches and smell and everybody will hate you.
BUT above all DO NOT ever go down to their level by driving like them as we are obviously more intelligent and vastly superior.
BTW - twice (not enough though) I've seen BMWs driven really badly and then seen them later down the road in a hedge with lots of dents and bits strewn around. (Luckily in both cases they didn't damage anyone else)
Liked some things about the 3 series I had but would never get another as I have taken to Alfa's big time. Much, much better to drive and better looking. Don't tailgate BMW's as I don't do it as a rule but don't going past them and watching them trying to match my bog standard 2.0 156.
Don't stone me, I have seen the light and promise never to stray again!
It really isn't the car's fault. It's the guy holding the steering wheel that's to blame......... Nothing wrong with BMW's they truly are a fantastic peice of engineering.......... I know, I've owned several over the years............... 'er indoors has one...........
...........There are pillocks driving all sorts of cars............. even Alfa's
