I have to admit too, that as both a Saab driver and a BMW driver, my BMW brings out a rather bad side of me - I drive it more aggressively than any car I have had bar an 84 Jetta GLI I had in college. I was young and stupid then, I have no such excuse now. The thing just begs to be grabbed by the scruff of the neck and wrung out.
