Oh, and you can call me angry all you want. I just generally don't mince words (That's usually called being direct). I also don't have patience for stereotypers, question dodgers, and hypocrites (Why the latter, you ask? Well, you sounded awfully ... well ...

... in the post that started this thread ... )

Keep hatin'. It's what makes the world go 'round, right? ::rolls eyes::

I will apologise - I SWEAR I answered it last night. I remember typing the post, and the at the end (after saying "because I was about to turn left") but on searching the thread - I cannot find it either. Bizarre.

No - did not have my turn signal on 200 yards before turning. Little excessive for me. But then, as also clearly stated - he was never in the left lane, and there were 2 other lanes to choose from.

I don't mince words either - I call a spade a spade. But seems everyone is determined to attack me for describing what someone else did - as if it was all my fault.

So I guess you're right. The problem was me, and he was just being a completely normal Porsche driver. And that's another reason why I would never want one - I don't ever want to be like him

But no - maybe you could point out to me in my original post where the was? All I can see is ? If you want to see look at the posts from the Porsche drivers where I've offended their sacred idol...

Left lane because you were going to "turn" but no turning signal. So he downshifted next to you, played some muffler music, and it got to you for some reason.

Do you get upset when people alternate merge in traffic into a space "in front" of you?

You really need to learn to multi-quote. It's amazing feature on the forums.

I pulled away at normal pace not making any attempt to race, and as expected he swerves to the right lane, passes at full noise (I was driving with the windows down to enjoy the cool air here in Texas) and then swerves back in front of me.

I guess they showed me!
Also, it appears you were in the left lane twice? No wonder they buzzed passed you.

Dude this is a forum. What do you expect? Anyone can say whatever they want on an open forum whether those things make sense or not in real life. No like then no post. Right?

Oh and btw, I am really butt hurt because I have been working my ass off toward one of these fine cars

You should learn to based responses on facts, not figments of your imagination. It's an amazing feature of being a decent human being.

You forgot to multi-quote again...
And I never based any of my responses on figments of my imagination. I asked for facts before I came to any conclusion. I can't speak for everyone else though...

But your conclusions ARE figments of your imagination. Were you there? Did you see it happen? Do you know every fact?

No - so your conclusion is a figment of your imagination, and that's why your opinion isn't worth a knob of goat shit, even if you think it's gold.

No. I won't. Ever. And there's a good reason why...

When you multi-quote, some of the posters (if not all) that you quote don't get notified - I have noticed this when people have included quotes from my posts in multi-quotes.

So to repeat, no. Never.

Oh please. I've never had P-Car envy. Over-hyped VWs have never excited me ever.

Seems your theory on car ownership is this:

1. Buy a BMW
2. Because you now have a BMW, drive like a cunt.
3. Because you now drive like a cunt, get a Porsche.

See, I don't buy that shit. I got a BMW, and still drive with courtesy and respect for others - it's called being human. You should try it some time.

But yes - close this thread before any more Porsche drivers get butthurt

Can I ask - is it simply the header where I said this is why I won't drive a P-Car? Or was there something in my original post that has got you so upset and angered? Or was it my continuing to defend myself against the tirade of angry attacks?

I find this quite frankly amazing and rather staggering - I posted a short description of what happened to me, and wondered (at the end of the original post) why the driver might have felt the need to drive that way.

I've been attacked left right and center, had people desperately searching for a reason to blame me and make his behavior my fault... why? Do people care that much?

I never said all Porsches sounded like shit - just that one. I actually agree with others - Porsche and Nissan 6 cylinder engines generally sound better than BMW, especially in the latter years - I think over the past 20 years BMW have muted the sound of their cars more and more, and then turbos don't help the exhaust note which they're just discovering now. But OMG - you'd think people had been butt-impaled with a hot poker - went off ranting and raving.

I expect online forums to have their quirky people, but holy shit... this place is un-fucking-believable...

Last post since you asked a somewhat reasonable question. Your title would hold some weight but here's where it opens up like a strainer. You complain about a particular brand driver and state you would never buy that car because of the way said person was driving the car. Now stay with me on this part.......you drive a BMW and it's a known fact that the general populous believes BMW drivers are the biggest ass hats on the road. Yet you own one......you see where your statement is one big ball of contradiction. So people draw the conclusion that you have P-Car envy, or you are full of yourself. Now you can act like this is your first BMW and you didn't know the stigma associated with owning one. If it's the latter then I'm still waiting for you to start your FS thread. Last word.....if you buy a car based on the way you see people drive them, I hope Uber is large in Austin cause you'll be walking. And based on your title......you buy based on how you see it driven. Now, do you understand why people have launched a "Your thread makes no sense" campaign.....peace.........Phil
