Hahah, and I smell hypocrisy - what were YOU doing in the Wal Mart lot? Don't be stupid enough to assert that BMW owners don't shop at Wal Mart or that they're too rich to be shopping at the chain.

But hey, people driving Ferraris will laugh at the poor BMW gatherings. How pathetic.
My thoughts exactly. I've seen E90s parking in formations during meets too. What's so funny about 4 cheap cars parking in formations?

I believe it's the idea that everyone else in the lot adheres to the spaces that were painted for cars, despite the inconvenience of parking so close to others. Parking the way these guys did screams "we're special, we're cool, look at us!"

To set the story straight, this was a HOME DEPOT parking lot, Wal-Mart just happened to be next door. I think these guys work there. What I find strange is this...I will go to great lengths to find a good spot but won't double park, especially on a Saturday at a place like Home Depot.

Really wish I had parked next to them...that is funny.

If it weren't for the greenery, I'd say it was Wiota, IA!!! They may have taken some extra spots, but at least they did it WAY out in the boonies of the lot.

Well, they're out to get noticed, and obviously they succeeded cuz you took pictures and posted it for thousands of people to see. Well maybe not thousands... how many people is on this board?

BMW owners don't park in Walmart lots, they park in a Pho plaza.

I can respect the fact that they dont want dings on their cars, no matter how crappy but those cars are [not that they are crappy]. But for 5 cars to take up 11 parking spots is just fucked up!!!! That calls for a tire slashing.....just on principle alone.

But look at the rest of the lot around the vehicles. It's pretty much vacant. The principle only applies for lots that usually become overly congested.

People that park like that are begging to have their car keyed.
There was an M3 parked in the garage today all crooked and I'd be surprised if no one touched it.
