You dont say... another douche in an M3? NOOOOO!

Hi Guys,

normally i dont write threads like this... and normally i wouldnt even bother but yesterday i had an "interesting" experience with a M3 owner that i figured i would share.

Yesterday evening, around 4:45 pm I was crossing the San Mateo bridge towards the Peninsula. I was driving in my daily commuter car, a '03 VW GTI with about 220k miles on the clock (shes a great lil car).

Up ahead i see a black E46 M3 with tinted windows and looked lowered with wheels. My brotherinlaw has the same color/car and he works in Hayward. I was suspicious because I thought it might be him. So i pushed my lil VW all the way to about 85MPH (everyone was doing about 75mph) to catch up to my "bro in law."

As i began to catch up, i pulled into the #2 lane (the e46 was in the #1 lane). I pulled up next to the car and peered in, expecting to see my bro. Instead I see some bald headed teen with a sh*t grin staring back at me.

So... I gave him the 'head nod' of approval since he owns a nice car. even though in my mind i was thinking he is kinda ghetto. instead of getting a thumbs up or any sort of 'thank you' acknowledgment he starts gesturing to race me.

yes... race me. In my old, high mileage, little GTi. At first i was like ugh... teens! but then i started to get annoyed cause he started getting aggressive... swerving in his lane next to me to show how dominate he is.

THAT PISSED ME OFF! and i pushed my little car a bit harder than shes used to just to get away and moved over a lane. On cue, the E46 zipped off at 100+

eventually I ended up catching up since he slowed... my thoughts were, "please just go away..." as i pulled next to him (me in the #2 lane and him in the #1) he was giving me a look... the type of look that makes him feel like hes better than me. you know the look i am talking about...

Even still... i decided to be civil and potentially make a friend. so i gestured to have him roll down his window. so he does as do I. I yelled in to his car, "nice car!" (while giving him a thumbs up)....

Much to my surprise, he starts to give me the "F-U face" while giving me the jerking off motion.

REALLY???????? WTF?

Then he takes off.

OK, so moral of the story, guys like this give us ALL bad names. PLEASE dont be that guy.

Here are pics of his car incase any locals run into this guy out and about... My advice: if you end up pulling next to him, just flash a gang sign. He relates to that.

p/s doubt he would have acted that way if i was in my E92 at the time... makes you think

Man, I don't really understand why people act that way. Especially when you even said nice car while stopped. Makes me sick. I would understand (but still not encourage) if he was driving a Bugatti or a Lambo, but an e46?

Sorry for your extremely annoying experience. Screw em.

I sure hope that douchebag is on the forum and sees this thread. So in an open note to the misguided lad in question:

Sonny boy:

I have three cars. All of them are nicer than yours. I have never, nor will I ever, behave like you. Other people's cars are just that: cars. Not measures of their personal worth.

Furthermore, I've known and raced with BlackMist personally for the better part of 7 years. If you want to measure how much of a bad ass you are, let's meet on the track - Laguna Seca, Infineon, or Thunderhill. Anyone can do 100+ on the freeway - that's bush league. Shoot, we'll even agree to drop down to beginner level just to be on the track as the same time as you.

Sincerely,

One of your elders

Ive been in a situation like this in my s2000 it was a teenager in a E92 M3 ( parents bought it). He actually flipped me off for unknown reason and kept cutting me off and swerving on the freeway. I think it's just new generation of teenagers and there parents spoiling them the wrong way.

Hes probably posting on a different forum how this gti tried to race him and got smoked LOL. I always just let the idiots be idiots. As long as they're not doing anything to make me uncomfortable (tailgating, swerving, etc) I don't pay them any attention.

After completely wasting my time reading this, I have come to a single conclusion. Both you and the 'ghetto' kid are giving us M3 drivers a bad name.

*Currently giving my screen the F-U face and jerking off motion.

Despite the fact that he behaved like a complete immature ass (the FU face and the jerk off motioning), perhaps he thought you were trying to be a jerk and that you were being sarcastic (you know saying "Nice Car" and giving a "thumbs up" can be perceived the exact opposite way, especially coming from a guy he doesnt know driving a VW who in his mind was trying to race or "keep up" or however he saw it.

Im not condoning his behavior at all but sometimes its difficult to tell when people are being genuine or a jerk at 80 mph plus on the highway.

That is fair. Perception is reality. Though in that case, one should not jump to the negative conclusion first. IMO

Ugh... you are right. I feel like 911 owners dont have that issue as much. Maybe the next car will be a Porsche. When i can afford it that is.
