Kind of amazing to watch, but this guy actually stops his car in the middle of the road and gets out of his car to yell at the following driver. Then hits the guy's car as he drives away!

What a jerk! Also, NSFW due to the profanity the BMW driver uses...

What a complete jerk, I might've taken him up on the offer if he wanted to try and beat my a**! Unfortunately I've found quite a few BMW drivers in the Phoenix area that consistently weave in and out of lanes, cutting myself and other drivers off. Not saying it's true of all but it's definitely an unfortunate stereotype to have.

What's the difference between a porcupine and a BMW?
With the BMW...the pricks are on the inside!



AND...it's a joke...so all you BMW owners, please don't take offense! We own a Beemer too!

Actaully, as a BMW owner, I've found most of the pricks are on the outside. As soon as people spot the kidney grill on my car, They start acting like bigger asshats than most people who drive BMWs. EVERYONE wants to push you because they assume you're an ass to start with. And truth be told, sometimes it's easier just to bow to the pressure to be one in response.

As a member of the BMWCCA, and the founder of a 7 series owners association, I can say that the number of pricks in BMWs is actually pretty low. It's just that they are SOOOO visible. AND, they are usually in brand new BMWs, usually 3s or X series. But most of us are not.

I hardly recognize them, myself.

Any high-end automobile, high performance sports car, specialty car such as Hummers, will befall this trend of other drivers becoming aggressive, I don't see it exclusive to BMW's.
A vette is noticable and will get attention, a hummer is noticable and will get attention. A BMW, wellllll, come on, I seriously can't tell the difference between them and an accord....But anyways, I drive my classic vette and yeah I get the tailgaters that think I am rich and don't realize I do most of the work on my car myself, and the kids in Honda's that want to race, etc. Not a big deal nor do I make a big deal of it, comes with the territory.

The video is strange however, didn't seem like he was tailgating.

Looks staged to me.I wonder how many times the BMW and the Mazda had to rehearse it before they got it just right.

+1 vote for staged. I mean the camera angle was just-so, traffic was gauged so that it wasn't too busy, and the Mazda was going slowly to allow the BMW to get in front, etc.

And the guy in the Mazda was just too calm. Almost like he knew what to expect.
