Wink First the "F10 M5's are always in the parking lot at Ralph's" insult and now this

Could you imagine if you have a Monte Carlo Blue M5 in a Ralph's parking lot? Then you'd be a jerk on a whole other level. Lol!

But yeah I'm a jerk when they don't get outta of the F'ing left lane, and God help them if they are in a Prius in the left lane. LOL!

hmmm, i will admit...I drove like a jerk yesterday, but I was very busy and almost an hour late being everywhere I needed to be. I usually drive fast but I don't cut others off or tailgate. Maybe that's becuz my car is gray and not blue

Drivers of BMWs and other high-status cars (including Prius hybrids) were also more likely to cheat at four-way-stop intersections, according to the research.

haha..

First of all, who thinks of this dumb shit to study. Secondly, I have a MCB M5 and I do have to agree with their results, but it's because more than half the drivers on the road are completely inept at driving. They should study why people can't understand simple concepts of driving; i.e. The left lane is for passing only.

The blogger was just pissed because an MCB M5 smoked him in his E63 AMG.

Only the idiots with bad driving habits call BMW drivers jerks. I have said this before, but if I had one woman for every minivan, Toyota, Volvo or Subaru I saw cruising in the left lane, you would swear I was Wilt Chamberlin. It's like they want to force you to slow down or go the speed limit. Then I'm forced to weave in and out b/w even slower cars just to keep it moving down the road. So yeah, I own & wear the jerk title proudly in the land of the idiot drivers a.k.a the DMV area...

Idiots on the road that do not obey traffic laws and/or common sense perceive BMW drivers as aggressive when attempting to maneuver around them. If drivers in the US behaved like German drivers, there would be no aggressive driving.

My favourite part..

The study found men between the ages of 35 and 50 driving blue BMWs were most likely to be reported as having engaged in road-rage behaviors such as aggressive driving and swearing.

Watch out MCB peeps you have been put on notice!! Hehehe
