I really wish sometimes that BMW never released the 3 series. I don't know if it's just me but I seem to find that most people who drive them are aggressive, rude and have very bad manners whilst they are on the road. I have found this to be even more the case since I have been fortunate enough to be able to own a Mercedes. I am constantly getting tooting of horns, revving of engines and shaking of fists and other visual signs. Quite often after this has happened and I have been overtaken I find that I am immediately behind them at the next set of lights so what's the point I ask myself. I drive an E280 CDI Sport estate which is a very capable car but I don't feel the need to drive like a ****** lunatic as it's pointless in todays traffic conditions, apart from that it's a waste of fuel, tyres and general wear and tear on the car. I am not pointing the finger at all 3 series owners and my eldest son has one but they do seem to stand out in the crowd when it comes to prattish behaviour on the roads. Maybe it's just me or maybe there is some truth in my observations. Perhaps there should be a cull. Rant over.
