    They were weaving in and out of traffic on the M4 tonight, passing me on the inside, then back behind me etc etc.  <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/crazy.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':crazy:'>

    4 young guys, with the DVD player going on the dash board, watching suspect videos.

    Anyway, they passed me on the inside slowly and had a look and stare, then raced off.

    Strangely they took the same exit on the M4 as me, and ended up sat next to them at the traffic lights, waiting to go down the dual carigeway. As they sat there, they shouted and made certain hand gestures because they noticed Katalin put her arm round me beforehand.

    Lights turned green, off they shot….. so did I 2 secs later, caught them up, indicated, slowly overtook (on the inside, to give them a taste of their own medicine) and then bye bye BMW!

    Stopped at the end of the A404 to turn left, so did they, I waved nicely to them (with an appropriate smile) and they were well annoyed!! (more hand gestures and sped off as quick as they could) I let them go this time.

    More fun for me, than it was meant to be for them!

    Not just the Beemer drivers heading for a Ban, I fear.

    I suspect you may be correct, although I don't think you have anything to fear :) lol

    Most cars with four lads/men will be driven like nobbers...

    Out of curiosity, what were you driving?

    Road rage or not, it happens all the time...

    No one died.

    Did discover today that neither a 330ci, nor an R32 can outdrag diesel C class on the motorway :)

    It may well happen all the time but it takes the cooperation of two parties (in separate vehicles) for the pre-conditions to be met which lead up to the event. There is no fun in demonstrating that you can beat the other party, when you know you can... something akin to bullying, where the big guy knows he can beat the little guy and then proceeds to do so for his own amusement. :dk:

    The thread could reasonably be re-named: tw@ts in a BMW 330ci... and a Merc because poor driving skill is not corrected by demonstrating that one can drive just as badly as the miscreants who had raised one's own ire.

    ^ Mine kept up with a Scirocco R and I was happy with that. For a diesal Bus....he wasn't :)

    No need for undertaking and that though, makes you out to be just as bad as them, no need... don't rise to it.

    As above we all have a go now and again its knowing when to stop.

    Blimey DM, you must have had to dig deep to revive a 9-year-old thread!

    Bored last night, by any chance?

    My god, somewhat sanctimonious.

    Sadly no-one ever has a go at the Volvo.

    The W203 is quite quick though and I have surprised a few people.

    The best car was the W210 E320 cdi though. Still relatively new, and not everyone realised that MB now made a quick diesel.

    Left a few boy racers behind, and one time with a caravan behind it.

    It was only two years old at the time.

    Actually you were probably right!

    If you are not a part of the solution then you are a part of the problem.

    Ha ha...

    It wasn't me revived the thread, it was the spammer that spammed this and several others.

    Oops. Didn't see Dash's previous explanation.

    If you are not part of the solution then you are part of the precipitate.
