TALE OF A BMW DRIVER

The other day I was cruising along as usual coming onto one of my motorways, which was very busy with inferior cars.

First off, I couldn't Believe that the volume of traffic DIDN'T slow down for me AT ALL as I came off the slip road! I had to squeeze into a barely big enough gap between two cars in order to get onto my motorway (the driver of the car behind me did realise his mistake though and honked an apology to me with a long blast of his horn.)!

Unbelievably, I had to do the same again before I could get to the BMW lane (why do underlings use this lane? Surely everyone knows it is for BMW drivers only?).

Anyway, once I was in the BMW lane and posing along at 176 km/h enjoying the adulation that the inferior car drivers were giving me, I noticed an inferior car ahead of me which was not only in the BMW lane of my motorway, but was driving at a ridiculous 120 km/h. Naturally, I got to within a foot or so of his rear bumper and flashed my headlights to remind him he shouldn't be in the BMW lane of my motorway and to get out of my way.

Of course, once he realised it was a BMW behind him, he did just that, but I could hardly believe it when he pulled straight back out behind me! He also tried to keep up with me and when he realised I would out-run him, he put on some blue lights in his front grill and urged me to get onto the hard shoulder so that he could congratulate me on my excellent car.

Needless to say, I was eager oblige and when we had stopped, the man gave me a piece of paper confirming what I already knew - that my car goes fast! Apparently he wants everyone to know what a superior car I have, so I had to go to court and show them. The man also said if I carried on like this they would take my drivers licence away! Can you imagine no need for a drivers licence?

See, now THAT's the sort of respect you get when you buy and drive a BMW!

I think it should be referred as the

"GOD COMPLEX"

you put someone behind the wheel of a really fast car and all of a sudden PRESTO they think they own the highway.
Changing lanes from left to right....

I know first hand I had the "GOD COMPLEX" when I first supercharged my 6.
Better now. I'm alot smarter now, no need to kill someone.

But whenever I do a large forced induced job on a customer..
most of my clinet base is old rich guys who want "sleepers" around the Aurora area..big $

Anyways when they take their cars out for a spin its either
(of course I'm sitting shot gun)
a) Wow thats scary fast need some getting used to.
or
b) WOOOO HOOOO (tach bouncing off redline)
speeds really really illegal.
I don't know how many times I've crawled out of these cars and thanked God I was able to touch the asphalt with something other than my teeth.

I've had a few angry people that come to my shop asking who and where the person lives that just left my shop doing warp speed.
