Ugh...Bad Day

Hey guys, today I was driving and I was signaling to go in the right lane because I need to turn right. Well the guy wasn’t giving me room... the car in front of him speed up, so i took the opportunity to go in. so now i go in the right lane and this guy is fuming.... he first flipped me off, so i flipped him off back.... then he was yelling pull over. I was like WTF. So imp trying to loose him turning in random streets etc... So he doesn’t know where im going... I used BMW assist SOS, to tell them the situation..... they stayed on the line with me while I lost him... I had to pass some red light to get away! but I waited to see if it was clear before going. Well I think he wrote down my license plate number.... can he do something with that.....? Should I change it....? I think if he sees my car around for sure he is going to key it. STUPID POS pickup!...

Thumbs down

Yeah I remember seeing that guy. I cut him off in my Focus, and he gave me a love tap with his front bumper. So I flicked him off, and he sped off looking at me the whole time until he disappeared down an off-ramp.

Four days later my dog was killed. Don't mess with him.

Do you have his license number? He will likely sleep on it and smell the coffee in the morning...

Coincidence or positivity? If you know that dude did it, that's messed up.

Word of advice....err on the side of caution with pick up trucks on the road. In my experiences, the drivers are usually willing s do something crazy and stupid. A buddy of mine in is e46 M3 had a gun pulled on him by a pick up truck driver and was followed, just because the guy didn't think my buddy gave him enough space passing. Same thing happened to me a few weeks back, sans gun. BMW Assist is good, but it takes too long to connect. I can see that being a downfall in an emergency situation. In the meantime, I still use BMW Assist to find local strip clubs. God bless those operators for realizing the importance of lunch buffet.

To be honest, the dog was barking a lot a night, so it had a lot of enemies in the neighborhood.

Yes he's a menace. I hope someone gives him what he deserves someday.

That doesn’t matter, to him YOU cut him off then YOU flipped him off. If you cut someone off assume they are not going to be happy about it.

When I cut him off, I flipped him off and threw a handful of pennies out of my window.
