    • BMW test drivers are not very friendly, BimmerBoost spots the manual F10 M5 testing in Socal

      So, your typical day in Southern California. Sun shining, go out for Sushi, and spot the F10 M5 doing some testing. This is apparently the manual test car, there were no shift paddles. The test driver seemed to be agitated we were taking so many photos. We kept snapping away until we both got a red light. The test drivers window was down so we tried to ask some questions, he just ignored us. BMW, it wouldn't hurt to get some test drivers with a personality or to interact with your fans. The guy is out on public roads, he shouldn't get upset people are snapping photos of a highly anticipated car. You guys aren't that upset about the 1M critcism, are you?

        He didn't look like he was enjoying himself, he looked miserable.

        It is offered in 4x4 but that particular truck is a supercharged 4x2.

        I honestly don't think I would be able to ignore someone that well (if that makes sense). He should be an actor or something for the deaf or hard of hearing... He didn't even acknowledge your presence. Good stuff. Click here to enlarge

        Some of the comments on that post were effed up. They sounded like a typical bunch of "I'm just way too cool" guys commenting after the fact. Click here to enlarge

        TTAC posts some good info on the car industry as a whole, but the writers are often way too cynical and sarcastic to be taken seriously.

        Some of those people are idiots. I was driving and my girl in the passenger seat was recording.

        Plus, what kind of an ignorant idiot cares who is driving? OMG, woman can not drive everyone on the internet must know how ignorant I am while I try to sound cool on a blog trying to insult someone for a point I didn't even get right. Idiots.
