Why do c63 drivers feel the need to...

Pull up real close to me and rev their engines and take off?

This has happened to me 4 times in the last 10 days...so I had to post it.

The idiot did it to me today even though the light was red 300 feet ahead and he had to brake hard to catch his left turn. Just to show off to me? What do I care about a c63? If I liked that car, I would have bot it

It's not just C63 owners. Everybody looks up to the M3. They want your approval.

^Awesome


Its the fact that they are jealous and regret not buying an M3 and know the engine was the only selling point of that one--they are self conscious when they see the M's.

I create an imaginary bubble where neither site or sound can get in and just focus on enjoying my drive. People that go out of there way to prove something to you have bigger issues to deal with in their lives.

Ya, everybody seems to want some action when I am driving around in my car as well. They end up not getting any action from me because it just isn't worth it...

I have a C63 and I don't get this attention. I'd prefer to not have people do that when I get a M3.

I just orderd my first M3, and in fact, my first BMW ever. Coming from an Audi RS4, I will have to say, the M3 is wthout a doubt one of those "reference" cars. It is a benchmark by which all others are judged.

When anything evenly remotely similar comes out, it is always compard to the M3...and when all is said and done, it usually loses.

Funny similar thing happened to me today against an M5. We were pacing each other back and forth pretty quickly, then I had to make a turn. I gave him a thumbs up and he nodded and returned. All good fun I suppose lol

You're close enough to the border where you can race in Mexico

Damn that must be annoying, but funny at the same time!

I'm sure they're just insecure about the choice they made with their vehicles, or just plain douchebags.
