    Absolutely, and that's just as bad as middle-lane hogging. NO lane on a motorway should be hogged - the whole point is to use the full width of the motorway (all the lanes), if necessary, depending on traffic conditions and how fast you wish to go, not sit there, rigidly, in the one lane for the entire duration of your journey!

    You need to be willing to MOVE and REACT/ADJUST to the prevailing conditions, and also respect the fact that you're sharing the space with other road users, and who may wish to drive at a different speed from you, especially in the 'fast lane', and allow them to do that.

    It's not your job to impede their progress, just because you don't think they should be going faster than you!

    It's not only BMWs but Audis and Mercs, as well as lesser marques.

    I had in mind 'boy racers' in their tarted up Ford Fiestas or even some 'white van' drivers.

    Lol - shows you how different we are... Those are quality cars, no doubt, and super-reliable, but also BORING as hell!

    The only Japanese cars I'd own is a Honda Civic Type R, or a Nissan GT-R. The rest are for pee-soaked pensioners Although I'd concede that Grant's jalopy is quite cool...

    Give me a nice BMW M3/M4, or preferably an Audi RS [whatever - they're all superb] any day!

    Don't rate modern Mercs....

    Any reason why?
    Shame you're not closer to me as i'd take you out in a C63S, E63S or when we get one in, a GT R.
    But, i will say that the build quality was a country mile better on the old Mercs than it is now.
    Getting into bed with Renault was never going to work well.
    Funnily enough i've never heard one of our sales people mentioning that a lot of the range have French engines and share rather a lot of other parts.
