Possibly my last encounter with a BMW driver..

Well, there was a BMW driver that cut us off just before the light, so we tailed him from the stoplight as the light turned green. I wanted to pass this BMW a-hole driver so I accelerated into the left lane. The lanes merge into one and there's a left-turner up ahead. He accelerates and tries to keep up with me. Seeing that there's really nowhere for either of us to go, and knowing the laws of physics, I cut the power and let him by. He then nearly rear-ends the left-turning car zooming by me and misses the turning car by a mere inches.


Boy, I really hope this is my last encounter with ANY BMW drivers with my SVTF. Throughout the years, they have been nothing but trouble. And each time, they're overcompensating for *something*, chasing me only because I want to go fast or they're trying to prove something.

Well, they can't prove anything as we all know that most people driving these types of BMW garbage do indeed fit the image of a poor, egotistical driver. It must be their rental rates.

With the possibility of selling the SVTF for the Infiniti G37-6MT, I'm hoping these things don't happen at all.

Though, if I *had* cut power a little later, it would've been great to see bits of BMW flying into the air.

I disagree. Owning one and working on one I found they are very well engineered cars. The suspension and braking are wonderful, and the motors are smartly designed. I once stood a nickel up on it's end on the plenum and revved the motor up to around 4K. The nickel was sitting in place spinning. It didn't fall until just above 4K RPMs. That's a wonderful balance for an inline 6.

A friend of mine that I went to high school has unfortunately turned into one of those a-holes. He bought a 97 or 98 C230 benz (maybe C320, I can't remember). The cars in decent shape, but it has alot of miles on it. He's constantly talking trash about how badass it is. Other than the fact that my car is faster, quicker, handles better, stops better, actually has a warranty, is alot cheaper to fix, has damn near as many options as the benz, is 5 years newer and cost less brand new than his did used, he's right. I've had to hand him his ass on more than one occasion, but he keeps coming back for more.

Great so everyone who drives a BMW is an and you must then show them how much of an they are by driving like an ?

If someone cutting you off makes you want to engage in dangerous driving to show your point then get the off the road. You are too immature to drive.

It takes two to tango... street racing is a a dangerous game. If you or he had been killed or injured would it have been worth it?
