We don't really seem to have much of the "driver syndrome" of which you speak here in the US. I have heard a lot from folks on the far side of the wet-ditch that this is the case, but cannot really say, myself. You know, I know some really great BMW people (BMW CCA), as well as SAAB'ers, Jeep'ers, and yes Ford Exploder people. In fact, I find that the propensity for being an asshole is not very closely related to what brand of car one drives. There are assholes behind the wheels of every brand. -Fred W
