I have nothing at all against 328's (I like pretty much all bimmers), but this guy would not leave me alone. He would tail me within 15 feet in the left lane. When I moved over, he would follow and continue to tail. I'd get pissed after awhile, and take off, getting up to 130-140 mph, leaving this guy behind. After getting back to normal speed (70-75), he would catch up going about 90, then tuck in behind me again. I finally said screw it, took an exit, and had a cup of coffee. I get this kind of stuff all the time, from a variety of cars. I think it's better to just relax and accept it. Or at least do a better job then I did. Maybe it's a compliment to the cars we drive.
I've noticed a similar thing in normal traffic. Now that I drive a BMW, people are less charitable in traffic and block my lane changes or cut me off more often than when I drive other cars (I rent a lot on travel).
