BMW X6 Drivers

Or the one who tried to push me into a ditch on the A1 last Sunday. I was doing 80 mph ish in lane 2. The BMW was behind me flashing his lights beeping his horn, there was no room in lane 1 for me to pull in. When there finally was a space I pulled over he also tried to get into lane 1 next to me and though he could push me off the road then the slowed to 50 driving on the centre line.

What a ****er! His gf/wife didn't appreciate my middle finger salute can't think why

You certainly live to the badges reputation and for the record the X6 one fugly looking car

The X6 was quoted some time ago on Top gear by JC when being put through it's paces to be "The stupidest car ever built".

You mainly find that cars like the X6 are bought by the poorly endowed (both mentally and physically) who have the social skills of a single celled animal.

Agree that X6 drivers I've come across are quite aggressive

I met an X6 driver only last week, he had all the personality of a small soap dish.

But, when others on the road want to be stupid and aggressive and risk an accident, let them go. They can have their pile up with someone else.

I know its difficult but try to maintain your cool, you are after all an Alfa driver and therefore far more superior in every way possible.

When that's happened to me and there hasn't been any obvious room in lane 1 I drop into cruise control and drop it down to about 55, still going faster than lane 1 but ****ing him off no end... Then if there is a gap, unleash the Italian ponies

Is that two thirds of an X6? Does that also mean that the buyer/driver of an X4 is 33.33% more social able and acceptable?

Worse.

But not as bad as a 2 ActiveTourer driver.
They are sub human.

I've just googled that. Wasn't BMW's corporate moniker 'ultimate driving machine'? They've clearly lobbed that in the bin with that car.

I get my revenge when I am driving the Land Rover. From the front, a bumper made of girders with a big winch on it. From the back, a big drop tow bar, and occasionally 18 foot of Ifor-Williams. I really don't understand people who aggressively tail gate when I am towing.

The comedy bit is the slightly tuned 4.6 under the bonnet, which does not sit well with the Tdi stickers on the truck....

The ponies were unleashed for a few hundred yards I was quite impressed with DNA button he wasn't so close then maybe he's trying to guess just what's under the bonnet and how many ponies I have. He was definitely shown the superior quality of Italian cars and Italian car drivers especially those who have had experience of being a b1tch in a beemer

Moral of the story for the X6 driver don't mess with the Mito especially not mine :devil:
