I travel often in Germany on business and drive all the time. Rent BMWs whenever I can. I have found the drivers to be very polite and safe. No tailgaters (unless you are in the left lane - NOT supposed to drive there unless passing), and Almost always use a signal for turning or lane change. There is much more training to get a license in Germany, so they tend to be better drivers.

Stay in the right lane unless passing, at on ramps, it is customary to move over briefly and let the oncoming car in. Pay attention to the lights ( yellow again, then green). Stay at the posted speed where it is posted - you'll see even the fastest cars slow down when the autobahn goes from wide open to a posted speed. Know your limits and the cars limits.

Good luck and have fun! Nothing like 120 mph in a rental car!
