I have to say, having been to the Mainland on countless occasions, the bimmer drivers there are much much worse then in the States, Canada or UK.
In Hong Kong it's a different matter, every other car is a BMW here, so no stereotypes...at least not to the degree you get in Mainland China.
+1 This is true, pretty often you will see an entire traffic jam in Hong Kong full of nothing but BMW, Audi and Mercedes and then there are the never ending river of red taxis.
