Have fun being a mature driver taking your kids to soccer practice and be careful not to wrinkle your skirt...

I know little ladies that can probably drive
rings around you.

I'll let you know how the surgery goes.
Maybe we can meet for a drink afterwards ;-)


Seriously:

people with modified cars are not usually agressive drivers, its just that everyone else is too damn slow,

Agree with the first point. Most of them are
into it for appearance and not function.
That's why the German's think we're nuts
to need something like an M5.

As far as being too slow, if you
are the type who sits 2" off the rear bumper
of a left-lane hog, you are too aggresive.
I'm not defending left-lane hogs, I hate them.
Everytime I come back from a trip to Germany
I takes me a couple of days to get over how
stupid American drivers generally are.

Also, not everyone has your driving skills
and super car. Whenever I get pissed at
a lane hog, I just remind myself that grandma
always drives 5 under the limit (even in town).


I'll stay away from your town as long as you
stay the hell out of the left lane...

I doubt most of the people in this forum are
left lane hogs, including you. Unfortunately,
most of the visibly modified BMW's I see
tend to be among the worst left lane hogs. It's
as if owning a tarted up car gives them
the right to drive at any speed in any lane
and to execute stupid antics with no regard to
surrounding drivers. Most of them also
think their cars are about 2' shorter in
back than they really are .. when changing
lanes without using turn signals.

Cheers,
John
