A lot of them are ar5e clenchingly dull and pedantic - i.e. recording mpg for EVERY SINGLE commute journey to work.

Also a few rather deluded 328ix owners on there too...

But some are okay - they do all have to put pi55 in their diesel cars though :-)

2012 E92 335d  [4.33]
Having spent some time living in the US, I think that BMW owners over there are a very different type of customer to BMW drivers in UK/europe.
Its much more of a niche brand over there - you've got to really want one to even consider buying one. Its not a mainstream brand like it is over here.

Seems to have its fair share of keyboard warriors hiding behind t'internet and copious amounts of willy waving, which is amusing sometimes I suppose but tiresome and off putting for the most part.

Alan summed things up well imo.

Definitely lacks the banter and humour.

It's a big and diverse country to be fair although one or two have posted on here who obviously understand subtlety, humour and enjoyed a good debate.

The sometimes and absolute crass modding can never be forgiven though!!
