    Grand Prix or Grand Pricks?

    Q: What is the difference between a BMW and a Porcupine?
    A: With the Porcupine, the pricks are on the outside.

    Anyway, this is a gross generalization, but my personal experience has been rather shoddy with BMW drivers, especially those that drive the 3 series ones.

    Hey, hey, hang on ye BMW owners. Before you jump out and accuse me of being envious of your wealth - thus further reinforcing the negative stereotype about BMW drivers, understand that it is rather easy for many of us to drive out on a BMW; and personally, I know many wealthy people, like those that own Mercedes-Benz or Jaguars, or an acquaintance of mine who actually owns a Cessna-206, and yes, I do not feel any envy towards them. The reason why I find most BMW drivers to be morons is because they (1) cut you off unsafely, (2) change lanes without using indicators, (3) tailgate, (4) flash, even when I am going at the speed limit, etc..

    Here is an account that I found very funny:

    And, it's not only in the US, apparently.
    BMW drivers are angriest on road

    Here is a nice discussion on car-type stereotypes.

    So, what are your driving experiences, and what type of people, or cars, annoy you the most? Please rant, . . . , err, share. :)

    Hahaha ................... and in India these people would go crazy because everyone here drives as if it's our own road. We drive every where, over take from any place/direction possible, make sharp cuts without signals, in fact one senses the other will take a turn by the slight shift in the direction of the head of the person driving, by and large there isn't much of a concept of signal driving here, we can stop without any parking signs, we can honk endlessly, we can have slow moving traffic right in the middle of a highway, people and stray animals crossing highways ............... and if nothing works, road rage can be quite convinent ........................ that's our roads and I love driving here :D
