Are Bmw Drivers Jerks?

Bmw drivers... Not so sure. But guess what, people in fast cars are more likley to be agressive. Why buy a fast car if you intend to drive it like a granny? A better study would be to look at the demographics. No surprise that men 25-40 drive more agressivly and go for a more sporty cars. Does a bear sh!t in the woods? Of course it does.

Bmw gets fingered because the logo stands out. Most other logos are a stylized crome letter on a round or square background.

Are today's BMW drivers more inclined to be "jerks"? Sure, but no more than drivers of other cars bought to project an "image" more than as a superb tool for pure driving. From my own, personal observations, today's BMW driver is apt to be pretty much clueless about actually DRIVING and more preoccupied with his/her cell phone/electronic device currently in vogue.

When our 1600s and 2002s were new, the majority of folks who bought them were ENTHUSIASTS, who bought BMWs because of the terrific performance value for the money (if you weren't there when these cars were new, you can't possibly appreciate how truly outstanding they were). Then, BMWs began to be a "yuppie" status symbol and, overnight, became "Beemers", instead of Bimmers. How sad.

You are 100% right. My car was bought new by my dad in 73. He did not know much about bmw, but was a photographer by hobby. Cruises at 100mph and built like a Leica sold him.

I have always seen them as well built cars, that have a sporty side. But then i grew up with my tii... So bmw was not an image thing for me.

 it's not that BMW drivers are jerks ....

 

It is that everyone else is jealous, and jealous people tend to often violently project their own inadequacies outward in attitudes which are less tolerant of those folks of whom they are most jealous.

p.s.  I learned that in college, so it must be true.

Both my wife and i have bmw's as daily drivers. I'd say we are pretty courteous drivers and i have found that people typically go out of their way to cut us off on a regular basis.  The typical situation is the ass hat who zoom's past you and cuts you off when there is like 100 miles of no one behind you. Ridiculous.

That and the people who speed up when you are signaling to get on the freeway. Though thats common for anyone here in San Diego, not just the bmw drivers.
