I've noticed on my drive to work in the morning, more and more I'm saying "There goes another C**k in a BMW" or sometimes Porsche.


Anyone else have this view? Is it the people that drive these cars? I'd like to think it's just not me!

LOL... it does seem to be BMW owners who get the mentality (or in my opinion anyway) "get out of my way, Im in an expensive European car, you are beneath me in your sub $10000 Jap crap" - I just do everything I legally can to p*ss them off.

i find it with Subaru drivers. Many (not all) drive their car like it's an extension of their anatomy

Like allstarnz I've noticed far more Subaru drivers with attitude. It's always safer to let them go and have the accident somewhere else.

I had a Subaru once... didnt drive it like an idiot though... but yeah, some people (inc women) in souped up cars get arrogant on the road...

Altho, back to European car drivers... http://www.xpd.co.nz/blog/?p=36

I don't drive, so I can't really tell one car enough from another. They're all pretty confusing to me, but my bus driver seems nice. :)

Except for IPhones.  Those are always valid observations.

I always find with buses the best thing to do is curl yourself into a ball in the center isle, and wait for the fun to begin... human pinball!

And I think the Subbie problem is more related to any young idiot in a car - wait, I used to be one of them! Young I mean...
