I remember back about 15 - 20 years cruisin' the strip cutting people off, getting cut off, chasing, passing stupidly, etc. That's what you two sound like, a couple of 19 year olds, in BMW's (that part I can't figure out), racing through traffic. These days, I see the 15 to 20 yr. old kids in there Honda Civic's and Mitsubishi Eclipse's, a far cry from Nova's, Chevelle's, Mustang's, etc. but they act just like I did at that age, and like the you two sound in your correspondence.
Sorry for the critisicm, having lived all over, including the midwest, I know there are some good roads you guys could leave some tread on and not accomplish it in city traffic. Don't get me wrong, I still get from stop light to stop light as fast as allowable, but not at the risk of lowering myself to the teen level again.
Don't get hot about the advice, just let people see enough of our cars to want them, and keep the resale value up. Don't make them curse you and wonder why anyone would drive like that etc., and associate that behavior with a car like a BMW. I guess I'm saying seperate behavior (attitude) from driving enjoyment.

Hey, if you don't like the advice, ignore it, but you won't get anywhere in life without recognizing feedback of any type can be positive.
