Encounter another M3 driver at 405 off ramp (Westminster, CA)

As another M3 driver, Iíd like to say a few words.
I know M3 can handle corners. On top of that, it can accelerate. Most importantly, itís gorgeous, looking car. Especially white E92 with carbon fiber roof. I am pretty sure the driveer i saw today is one of M3post member. Very nice looking car.

so this is what happened.
I was driving SUV today. (high center of gravity and bulky) not sure anyone knows 405S off ramp @ Westminster. It curves about 270 degree. One lane. No passing lane. Narrow shoulder.

And of course being a driver of a SUV, I had to slow down for that curve. The M3 driver seems in a hurry since I could see his face thru my rear view mirror. Thatís pretty close. I am not sure why maybe he was late for a meeting or something. He decided to pass me. One lane (not too narrow but curvy).

I think itís very dangerous. Put him in a dangerous situation as well as the other driver (in this case, me).
If you are reading this thread, please forgive slow SUV drivers and slow down a little. Or pass when itís safe. People are not as skilled and their cars are not as capable of M3.
Thank you for reading my post.

i thought about that a fraction of a second there
but no accident (or piss someone off when he/she is already pissed) is the best option.

I feel for you, but I mean, it happens. All the time.

Just saying that you don't hear complaints about the myrads of Priuses, Civics, Highlanders, Priuses, Camry's, tC's, Priuses, Aston Martins, A4's, Siennas, Priuses, Tauruses, IS350's, Mazda3's, Tacomas, xB's, Priuses, Corvettes, TSX's, 328i's, F360's, and Priuses which do this on a daily basis.

I work in LA btw. And no, it was not me. I don't use the 405.

This though, I concur with. That was the right thing to do. Heavens knows he'd come out of his vehicle with his stupid crowbar, and you'd have to get him with the wire tazer in your glove compartment, right?

I add Priuses on equal standing with the clunkers, but yeah, I agree.

Well the day before yesterday i was in quite an opposite situation. I was driving within the speed limit down 17th st in Santa Monica when a pretty big SUV starts blinking and honking behind me. I keep driving paying no attention. So this d*ckhead jumps on the opposite lane, squeezes all juice out of his truck and cuts me off. I took it easy: just gave him a finger and made a turn. Yeah SUVs might be slow, but if they are driven by such retards as the one i met, they ARE waaaay more dangerous than that M3 guy who passed skywalker562 the other day..

I hear these are a dime a dozen in LA. Only seen one (non-modded) in SD/North County.

Coming from NYC, which has a horrible reputation in terms of drivers, I find SoCal to be much worse. People never signal when changing lanes, getting cut off in the fast lane by someone who is doing the posted speed limit is very common. Everyone is on the phone. These people need to spend a day on the Jersey Turnpike before they are given a license...
