    I think all of this is confirmation bias. What I mean is that, for example you say a statement like "All BMW drivers are idiots" therefore when you see one driving like an idiot therefore it confirms the said bias. If you were to actually log all the instances where you saw a BMW and they were driving normally, you would probably see that they are on the whole the same as everyone else.

    Just to throw a little science in there..

    .... as a previous Citroen Dyane 600cc driver , there was an assumption that we are proceeding at 20mph , everybody sees fit to leap out in front of us ...
    by the same token . With the current 2cv fun car ,i t's neat to nip out to the outside lane downhill with tail wind at 80 and p... BMW drivers off
    ... then there is the trick of slipping through the centre lane to dicing with the lorries .. got stopped by the law who let me off 'cos they could not believe it could do 80+ .
    no problem with our anticipated New Beetle I guess !

    .. and what about those old BMWs driven by kids with no regard for anyone . I favour scrapping of all BMWs after 5 years .LOL.

    In a totally non-scientific way I can categorically state it seems to be Audi drivers who now rule the roads and are waay more arrogant from personal experience........

    Ah yes the BMW driver,Good cars but only have 2 positions on the go faster pedal,on or off.
    I remember back in the 70s when the same type of driver used to have a MK3 Cortina(Coke Bottle shape)

    Now I think when they park up the car of an evening or weekend,they don Lycra and get on the cycling equivalent of a BMW.
    They still think they own the road.

    Oh and has anyone on here been overtaken at anytime by a Toyota?
    They don`t seem to be able to get past 50 mph.

    Vauxhalls cannot go round corners at all well it seems.

    It's probably wrong to generalise, BUT, lads in white vans are a danger on the road.

    I used to be a carer for the stunt driver of the red mini and he was a tall big man. He drove like that all the time 😂 in a mondeo. Some places i mentioned with traffic lights he would go...what lights.. 😑

    have to say that all bmw drivers are bell ends. Having just swapped a Mercedes to a VW, i'll leave that there. I certainly didn't drive like a twonk in my Mercedes.
