Have I become a bully?

I've only had my e92 for 5 days, but now:

1. I speed up behind folks in the far left lane on the interstate. Usually they change lanes when they see me coming . . . .
2. I rev the engine at stoplights . . .
3. I rev the engine at gas stations to make folks look . . . .
4. I'll pass on the right if the person in front of me is driving too slowly . . . .

You've become "that guy" that's begging to have their car keyed or vandalized. Be safe, and grow up.

Not sure you want to tail gate in your M3. Revving the engine so people pay attention to you doesn't make you a bully, it makes you narcissistic. Passing on the right is something I do no matter what car I am driving if people insist on driving in the left lane.

I'll admit that I've always been impatient when slowpokes insist on staying in the fast lane. As for the revving, I might rev it once after I put the car in gear (not like a teenager or anything like that!).

I love throttle blipping for perfect down shifts on my 6sd and could care less what anyone has to say about it. The S65 with an open exhaust is a treat for anyone within ear shot and far from a disturbance. With that said I also do not just rev for no reason unless i'm mashing the gas and disappearing into the horizon for my own personal enjoyment

Same here, i love the throttle blip and downshift pretty much but not just free revving

I've enjoyed the sound of every BMW engine that I've owned (except the N63 in the 550i, which has no sound). I like hearing engines idle but I also like hearing them with the throttle applied while the car is stationary. Maybe it's because I'm mechanically inclined, who knows. So where should I open the throttle if I want to hear the engine? I certainly can't do it in my garage . . . .

No need to rev the M3, it sounds awesome without having to show off. Save that stuff for the enthusiast's that want some.

Anywhere you want. I was just saying I do it when i'm on the road and there is load on the car.
