Proof That Some Benz Drivers Are Insecure

ok, so I was out cruising yesterday in my E90 and I notice this black Mercedes driving at normal speed in my rear-view mirror - at first I thought it was a standard E-class but once we are the light, it turned out it was an E55 AMG.

Anyways, so we get on to this double-lane stretch of road and I was going pretty fast, not trying to race or anything, but once I passed him, he revs his car and floors it. WTF! He was weaving in and out of the lanes like an idiot, and was pretty much gone soon thereafter.

Did he get smoked by an M5 or something that he felt the need to prove something? I don't know, maybe he was insecure about BMW's in general, otherwise why would you have the need to try and challenge a car that is obviously no match for you.

I see idiots everyday. I love the drivers trying to go 300 mph when traffic is moving at 15mph. No matter what, they don't get any further, plus the car is going through hell. I don't get it, I think, I would hate to buy that car used! :mad:

It's not that we're not sporty drivers, there is a time and place for sporty driving, and its obviously not in heavy traffic. Driving smart and driving passionate can be combined to a harmonious advantage when driving our state-of-the-art machines.

When the accelerator is depressed to its full extent, the soul is empowered with supernatural force otherwise known as the Double Vanos Vigor!

You can't touch this ride

I've seen two black ones - they are pretty damn nice. I saw the first one at Fashion Island - it was some lady on her cell phone changing lanes without signalling (which seems like an inherent trait to Mercedes drivers btw ).

The second one I saw was of the guy in question. The car was nice but he was just too much of a loser.

I remember couple months back seeing an Black E55 AMG doing the same thing. Only difference the driver was this hot MILF in a business suit driving like a maniac. I tried following her to an extent, but the 330i Straight 6 can't touch that Supercharged V8.

ah, must be another one of those trophy wives. well, you at least have a 330i with the Sports Pkg so you still stand out. I have a 325 with the stock rims (which will change in due time).

Actually, now that I think of it, the girl that I saw was pretty good-looking too from what I remember. know what you mean though - when it's a girl, esp. a hot girl, driving a car like that, you can't help but feel a little inadequate. damn, now I feel insecure, lol...

the other day i was tailed by an E55 AMG. I was turning on to the on-ramp and he was right on my a$$. I tried to go faster to get outta his way but he kept tailgating me. When we got on the freeway he was just gone. I knew it was fast so i didnt try to race it. But yeah, no need to show me it's fast. I already KNEW it was fast!!! That's why I want a 335...nice to know you have all that power under the hood (if rumors are true about the 500bhp that is)...

Well..... since it is Holiday season. I guess I would not judge him as an a..hole for just one occassion. May be he had a bad day that he have to vent, or may be he was bored and wanted to have so fun. I am sure we all have done dumb thing that we would like to forget.

Cheers.

yea, he was also tailgating me, that's why I sped up and changed lanes. An M3 could probably even give him a run.

dude, it was Christmas day - it was like dead outside. There was only one other car ahead of us (a Camry) and the guy in the Benz was driving normal up until I passed him and then once he got ahead of me, that's when he shifted into high gear. There was someone else with him, probably encouraging him I'm sure.

You are right though, drivers like that aren't confined to just MB, just sharing an experience with one.
