I will say that new model cars get more negative attention than older model cars.
I can verify this claim, if Iím out on my E30 or 2002 I get more thumbs up and love and compliments towards the car than if I were out with my 2er. Older the car, bigger the love

I don't think it's BMW as much as it's any nice car and the perception of other drivers. I am a courteous driver. Always signal, not as an invitation, but only when I have my opening then click twice. More times than not, the driver I'm getting in front of speeds up as soon as he sees the blinker. And of course there's the merge during rush hour. They teach chance a piece in kindergarten but some people just don't get it. I'll be ready to merge with a nice opening and the jerk in the right lane that is 2 car lengths behind doesn't want me getting in front of him.

Haters are going to hate. I get lots of thumbs up mostly from BMWs or other "drivers" cars, but also get the finger for no reason. I was the first car sitting at a light a few months ago and a driver of some POS car made a left in front of me from the cross street, he actually stopped, took both hands off the wheel and gave me the finger with both hands! No reason other than jealously I guess.

I live in the New Orleans area. Drivers will cut into lanes here to avoid waiting an extra minute in the correct lane. Apparently some feel like their time is more important. Doesnít matter what youíre driving, some people are just horrible drivers.

I was behind someone 2 days ago in the left lane of a 2 lane hwy, speed limit is 70 they are driving 58-60 along side of the car next to them. After about a mile and a dozen cars now behind them they slowly move past the car in the right lane. I passed stayed in the right lane but see them speed up to come and pass me. Now Iím going almost 80 so this person went from 60 to over 80 and I had already passed them to get into the right lane to exit. Anyway my opinion is that some people just drive like the road was built for them only and have no thought of anyone else on the road.

Unfortunately some unconsciously base their speed on the car next to them. I find if I jump on it to get away from them, they back down and keep up with the next car. I don't know what is worse; the pack mentality or drivers' inability to grasp the concept of keeping right except to pass. Drives me CRAZY.

Ha, it's funny you mention that. I 100% agree and that's why I was like wtf about it. My 3 series is not that big of a deal, it's not like I pulled up in an S class or something. Even then, who are other people to judge.

As for the first guy, you may be right but I didn't get that vibe from him. He didn't start the conversation by saying, "hey, nice car" or something along those lines and then proceed to ask me questions... He just asked if I bought it and how much I paid.

I tend to get pulled over a lot. 28 times now but I've never been pulled over in my 4runner even though I drive it the most and I have dark tint on the whole car + full windshield. Maybe it's the BMW after all that always gets me stopped lol

I drove the same way in my Saturn as I do now. Just so happens the marquee falls into a bucket that assumes I'm only like that because of the marquee.

Couldn't be farther from the truth. As a shock, I use turn signals all the time.

I drive like a stereotypical BMW douche.

I know it's wrong, but subconsciously my mind starts giving no fks because my car looks cooler and drives better than everybody else's. That's what such a capable car does to you!

The standard excuse:

Buddy, turn signals are an expensive optional extra on these cars. I'm not made of money!

On the road people, generally, are dicks. I try not to act like a pussy or an asshole because I don't want to get fucked and i try not to suck either because i i don't want to take the chance of eating shit in case i run into a dick that just got done with an asshole.

Not sure if these people are this way bc i have a BMW but I'd assume it's more likely just an excuse people use to justify their general hate and rottenness they hold on the inside.

Not even! She had a 14 yrs old son; no pets. She was quite the gal; hence why I went over the caravan pretty quick ahah. But she also parked on the street; and when I asked why, she said that she didnt want to take a chance so I dont get mad at her for parking besides my car .

Oh well!

They do.



On a related note, I think all of the "prejudice" I receive is because I'm 28 (and look younger). It's always from people old enough to be my dad or older giving me shit for my car, which makes me laugh because neither of my cars are worth more than probably 5-6 grand on a good day. It's more the ignorance that annoys me over anything else.
