nothing wrong with being a nut case.... I can just picture myself as a nut case if I have to drive in SoCal traffic on a daily basis. My friend lives near Disney and commutes on the 405. A few years ago, I was visiting and she drove me to the airport... at 105mph... in somewhat congested traffic I wasn't sure if I was fearing for my life or getting arrested as an accomplice to something. (but she did get me to LAX safely...) Now that I think about it, she was also guilty of fake-badging. She had a fake AMG badge on her E420.

that was basically what she said! everybody was doing 90mph to 100mph. I guess you guys are always training for future high speed police chases?

You want to go to a place where you need a car? Try Houston. Next to zero public transportation. Also lots of BMW's and very few fake badges. Because people don't align their personality / status to their car like they do in SoCal. At least not as much.
Yup. Gotta drive up to DFW for that.

The elusive MX6 (sounds like a Mazda).

Probably running their MX6 summer performance tires in this weather.

Funny… you’re not that far from the truth - they actually had chains on

A lot going on here… looked like he had CS-style wheels, which weren’t bad tbh. But the fart-can exhaust on a 540i was horrid (and of course the badges… and it even looked like some of the “competition” part was broken off?) Couldn’t tell
