Why are BMW owners so widely loathed?


#1

It’s a mystery to me


#2

be good bants if you shipped them out with the bmw logo on the box but when they installed them they actually projected a crudely drawn penis and an arrow

Probably posted this before but my crowning moment was fucking a BMW wanker over.

I was driving through a small village on my way to the football, and noticed a speed camera van stationed at the side of the road. The mph limit was 30.

On my way back through the village after the match a BMW was RIGHT up my arse, ridiculously aggressive as they normally are. The opposite lane wasn’t too busy but it was quite a windy road so he didn’t dare overtake. I knew a straight bit of road was coming up, and I knew that there was a chance the police were still waiting there.

I slowed down to just under 30 and made him be patient, and sure enough as soon as the road opened up a bit he sped past me… right into the speed trap :fu:

No idea if he got fined or whatever, but I hope he did.

One of the pool cars at work is a 1 series and it’s a truly horrible car. Gearbox is the clunkiest thing on earth, feels like you’re stirring Lego.


#5

Oh shit when the dubstep kicks in :joy:

Actual tears at my desk


#6

Saab drivers are worse, in my experience.


#7

Anyone who drives knows that all BMW and Audi drivers are, without discrimination, self-entitled scum of the earth tories.


#8

people in new cars are worse than people in old cars, no matter the make.


#9

My last two cars were BMWs and I currently drive an Audi. I don’t speed, tailgate, or drive aggressively in any way.

In the many years I’ve been driving I’ve found very little correlation between driving manner and make/model of car being driven.

Except Range Rover Sports with private plates. They are always, always driven by cunts.


#10

aren’t new cars insanely expensive too?

What do you actually get for buying a new car? Is it just that it’s a bit shinier?


#11

yeah. you get a number plate with the current year on it, which is very important for some reason.


#12

No one really needs to own a car, obviously.


#13

New cars tend to be cheaper to run. They don’t need an MOT for 36 months and if anything does break they’re likely to still be under manufacturers warranty. Plus they’re more efficient.


#14

Manufacturer’s warranty, more of a guarantee that things haven’t gone wrong with it in the past, no wear and tear, more customisation options (colour of cup holder etc).

You pay a HUGE premium for that over the same car that’s only a little bit older though.


#15

as a dedicated pedestrian I get looked down on by all other transport users so this wouldn’t bother me at all


#16

No MOT for 3 years. Servicing packages often included. Ability to spec it yourself.

None of that is worth the cost, though.


#17

#18

i want to fit this to my kitchen cupboards. all of them


#19

Yeah, but someone who is one of those drivers would say exactly this


#20

as a 30+ white man, i for one think that there’s no specific gender, age and race demographic that i’ve noticed to be particularly arrogant!
