Angry Rant BMW haters/envious?

Is it just me or do people see a new BMW and decide they want to see if their car can out manuveur the e90? :mad:

3 times today, I signal to change lanes and someone decides to move to the same lane from the other side that I'm planning to move to. All 3 times I pulled back into my original lane.

Also had a new black Jetta behind me twice decide to change lanes in the same direction as me when he saw me signal.


:mad:

You're crazy, I'm in SF and I never get that behevior.

Maybe your Driving Style or the Mystic Blue incites rage.

Or it could be you just encountered straight up assholes who would have done that to any make/model.

I was at a light yesterday and a GTO pulled up in the turn lane - he was going left - I could only go forward yet he was revving and jumping forward on the clutch like an 17year old in an Integra wanting to race.

He got the green arrow and peeled rubber through the turn.

Wanker.

Signal while your changing lanes, if you have to, be more aggessive.

Without putting yourself in danger of course, I'm not usually very aggressive but sometimes were left with no choice, the E90 can certainly handle it.

Just the sight of our car will have some foaming at the mouth, thats not our falt.

People in N.C. can not drive. They rarely use indicators, ever. They do not like to be passed, anywhere, they see you trying to come past and they speed up. I end up just flooring it to get past. They all follow to closely, and dont leave enough room for braking. I once was in an accident where this old lady turned right on a red light straight into the side off my mums car (I was driving). She said it was her fault, so no problems.

I hope you were being . If signaling lane changes (my driving style) incites rage then I guess I should stop signaling.

Actually I wasn't in SF at the time. I was in Marin and the East Bay.

I'm thinking maybe it's the 3-flash signal that's throwing people off because it goes off so fast.
