Ahhhh! Now you are starting to sound a lot like me! I knew there was a human in there somewhere! :P
I have an ongoing pogrom against Beemer owners (especially black Beemers as those drivers seem to be the worst of the lot. They must stay late for extra classes!

It's funny how things gets stereotyped esp. in Singapore. It's true that in say the UK a BMW driver might sometimes be younger/pushier/more of an a-hole than say a Merc driver etc at a similar purchase cost. I suppose the style of the driver correlates with the style of the car.

Black BMWs though, I'm wondering whether to share this with 'MrsJR8', a driver of the same, who is one of the more 'leraxed' SGn drivers I have ever met :) Then again if you can buy such a car 2nd hand for say US$20k it doesn't seem to come with license to behave like an ar*e. I wonder why the country of purchase seems to change that.
And if you live in Germany there are BMWs everywhere and the drivers are no better or worse than anyone else. [As one might expect they're 99% extremely polite and mature drivers there, what-ever the model].

In Singapore probably with the value perceived and associated nouveau riche vanity. But I am not that strong about having black BMWers as a distinctive group. There are some more distinctive.
On that subject, I observe more and more White men driving SUVs and if the next seat is occupied by a local lady, they drive like a complete AHs. Singapore worst style multiplied by 10 at least.
