BMW drivers are jerks

I've had my M3 for 2 weeks now and according to this article, I am all of a sudden a jerk:

Your a jerk for posting this, not because you drive a BMW.

I've always been a jerk, welcome to the club.

I'm a huge "jerk" I suppose. I expect people who are in crosswalks to MOVE THEIR ASSES when there are cars coming. Remember playing in the street when you were a kid? You'd see a car and yell CAR! RUN! That sense of urgency is rarely seen among adult pedestrians, so I think they could use some 'excitement' in their lives to remind them the car is bigger/heavier (at least in some cases) than they are.

Cheating at 4-way stops? Yeah, because I don't want to get stuck behind some beater blasting thick, black smog into my grille (this is FL, no emissions) while going 30mph in a 45, call me crazy.

I hate that the article lumps BMW drivers in with 'high-status' Prius drivers. Those guys are the worst, I think it has something to do with driving a hybrid car making one enjoy the aroma of their own flatulence... But we can always remind them that Top Gear has taught us that an M3 gets better gas mileage than a Prius anyway

Whoa... maybe the article is right?

They'll never write about how big of assholes the Prius drivers are though. Probably because the writers themselves drive those POS.

I think the feeling of superiority and smugness that a Prius driver (one who bought it for status and self promotion) gets while driving their car is far more severe than that felt by a guy driving a 6000lb SUV or truck or any super high performance car, let alone a common BMW.

I always reward honesty like that. Reminds me of when I lived in NY, I'd always give the guys money when they had signs such as: "Need money for hookers and blow"

This article fails to mention that the E90 M3 Civic driver is the worst because he is trying to overcompensate for having 2 extra doors and lacking ZCP. Then again... what am I saying? The E90 isn't even a real M3!

This is true. I often see Prius drivers driving way too fast and cutting people off on the highway. So much for saving gas - the way they drive, they aren't saving any.

well...given that it costs you $5000-$10,000 to dispose a Prius battery (depending on location, laws may change over time) at the end of the car's life, I would be incentivized to wreck the car and let the insurance company take the hit!
