And besides that, a BMW is a rear wheel driven car. Those behave (really) different when you encounter a traffic situation where drastic action is required. Front wheel driven cars are behaving more "friendly" in those situations.
Having said this, I like the driving experience that is BMW (yep, I'll admit it....BMW fanboy here).
In Neal Stephenson's book Snow Crash
, there are numerous traffic scenes where BMW drivers "immediately took evasive action."
Later on, he remarks that BMW drivers always
seem to feel the need to be taking "evasive actions" - and wonders if this is how they justify, to themselves, the high price they paid for their cars.
From my experiences on the highways around where I live (and where skittish lane-changing BMWs abound) I truly believe Stephenson was on to something.@Shades
- So since you own one...is that true?
