G35/37 drivers...I can't take it anymore!

What's with the stock G35/37 drivers who always want to race me? Usually I have the self-control (i.e. my wife screaming at me) to ignore most drivers who want to race. But there's something about these G35/37 drivers that makes me want to press the power button and drop it in 3rd and destroy them! Is there something wrong with me? I think they honestly think they own a GT-R or something. Serenity now...serenity now...serenity now.

Sorry for the rant. I'm going back to work now. I feel better.

The Infiniti G series sucks. Probably my most hated car. Test drove it a while back. Didn't enjoy it at all.

It's funny that you highlight that car(s)
I always thought that they were driven by ALL douchebags.

The only thing worse is a Subaru with a "Code Pink" bumper sticker.

BMW drivers usually get the label of douchebag but MAN.. I know what you're talking about. G37 with exhaust; guaranteed douchebag. There are two in my building and they driving like maniacs in the parkade too.

I used to have a G37... I never tried to race anyone. Now I have an M3... no one has tried to race me.

Maybe it's just San Antonio? Or maybe it's just you! Maybe you look really fast!

I thought it was just me that experienced G drivers wanting to race. I also have the WRX guys with big ass exhaust that want to reside also.

Just look at them and wave. No need to prove anything to anyone.

We always get a bad reputation for being the biggest D-Bags Granted there are people out there that do let it go to their heads, by no means though do I think we have the biggest crowd of them.

I had a G35 with massive exhaust sticking out try and race me a while back light to light he would rev his engine and take off, once we hit the freeway I let the S65 loose. I also have a problem with VWs that are scraping the ground with a ton of negative camber...

So true, I see some BMW M3 drivers do some ridiculous maneuver that endangers everyone around them and I just cringe. When I drive I am usually very courteous in an attempt so other people say, "hey, that M3 driver isn't a douchebag..I guess they all aren't that bad."

I have never encountered this with a G3x, the only cars that have tried to race me so far have been a new camaro and pontiac solistice...but I will agree that when it comes to the douchebag stereotype, M3 drivers are probably at the top of the list.

I think I saw the most aggressive street racer couple months ago. Audi A4 (old one, like 10-15years old). About 6am on a Saturday morning I'm driving around legal speed on I-5, on my way to a track day. This dude rolls down his window, and there I see him.... wearing a full face helmet

He looked at me couple secs, waiting for me to race I guess? No idea, since I was driving a MINI Cooper (he must know I don't have much power)... Then he gunned, flames coming from his exhaust..

Never ever in my life I saw anyone drive with a helmet on public roads

I previously had a G35 coupe and then a G37 sedan afterwards. For the price, they are quite good.

I had my fair share of M3 drivers revving their engines at me. One actually cut me off deliberately on the hwy even though I was on the middle lane! So it goes both ways.

I drove a G35 coupe before my M, never tried to race anyone, let alone a M3. I have had what happened to you happen twice to me, by the same douchebag driving his grey G37S coupe.
