I don't like the people who drive BMWs round my end. They tail gate me all the time and drive like theres a women in labour inside.

But they do make nice engines...

I think theyre wonderful. The Germans make the best cars in the world. As well as the Italians. Hands down. Theres nothing that can compare to the quality of those cars. BMW is one of my favorite car companies.

If anyone is behind you wanting to pass...the proper thing to do is to move over. If you don't, then you're just being an A-hole.

Especially when I'm already going 20 over the limit. I'm definitely being an A-hole. Happens to me a lot, but I live in a young neighborhood, so it's always soccer moms tailgating.

If a BMW (or any other motorist for that matter) does that to me, and I'm overtaking at the correct speed limit at the time, I just stay where I am coz I don't like intimidating drivers! GRRRR


By the way, FordFromHell, I have to disagree with you about the Italians making good cars lol

Im starting to like JediMario more and more every day!

BMW's, simply put, are the shizzle.

The reason I love them so much is because they are the perfect mix of luxury, performance and beauty. You can look at it one minute and it looks like a classy business man's car. Then look at it again and notice how unbelievably aggresive it is. Its the same way with the performance side, you can be cruising happily in comfort with the air conditioner blasting, listening to your favorite CD on the Harmon Kardon sound system on the way to the track, then when you get there, turn off the ASC and tear up a boxter or two, then cruise back home.

To me, BMW's are so amazing, because they are so well balanced.

I think theres something wrong with you With the exception of their air conditioning being shitty, theyre wonderful cars. Who else can make a 3.2 liter V8 huh?
