Whoa internet tough guy. Too bad you can't "run me off" road virtually.

If you are so proud of you car, do the reveal.

The thread title is a bit dumb, but I like the question. Maybe its a Toronto thing, but there seem to be tons of asshats who like to take the inside lane when it is ending.

My bet for cars that would do well in this situation is anything with a large displacement engine and awd. Maybe even some SUVs. Jeep SRT8, Cayenne Turbo etc.

Yeah, every cab in Toronto

Title (some get it)... Jeremy Clarkson said M3 drivers are "Cocks", I blocked an M3 driver from feeding me sand + salt, I performed a Cock Block.

Any of you Canucks ever have the pleasure of taking the main road (I think it's Oak or Granville) into downtown Vancouver B.C. on a busy night? That for me is where I see the most "cock blocking". You have three northbound lanes but at intersections there is no dedicated left hand turn lane so anyone turning left can shut down that lane. In the right lane you have parked cars at seemingly random locations which shut down that lane. The only real "safe" lane is in the middle but that's where the slower traffic gravitates towards so you constantly have traffic passing on the right and left. It's very much like a game of vehicular frogger.

Yes, agree. Don't worry TB some of us got the title and the point. I'm not quite sure why you are catching all the flak. It is a very legitimate question.

Yes, I am a little confused too. Some M3 owners have no sense of humor. Then you get internet tough guys who want to run me off the road But I appreciate you running the tests....I learned something.

I am going to follow up and start a thread on Cartest 2000 cars so we can share.... Just need some time.

lol it's no biggie man, it's just that there's something annoying about a little green smiley face with M3 cock block next to it that doesn't settle right with me. i dunno.
