    So due to a change in company policy I can no longer choose the car (within reason) of my choice I am given the choice of either a BMW 3 series or 5 series. Today I picked up my shiny new 3 series. I've done nothing but be courteous to other road users, I've given way to people, I've not tail gated and I've even used my indicators. I'm determined to single handed change that perception of BMW drivers. So if you get waved through, given plenty of room, given lots of indication of intentions give the driver a cheerie wave It is very likely to be me... It's the least I can do...:hugs:

    I tried to alter the perception of Audi drivers when I had an A5 for a couple of years - it didn't work.

    Good luck trying though.

    Of course if that really worked, it would only take a few courteous cyclists to improve the image of all cyclists. Except that doesn't work, does it? :rolleyes:

    You won me when you said you'd used your indicators.(properly?):wub:.
     
  14. BMWs are great. Buying one entitles you to around an extra million parking spaces....

    I often see BMW indicators in use. Usually all four of them at once, to indicate "I don't think parking restrictions should apply ro me"
