Was driving home from work today, following a co-worker... I took the turn left as i was going Northbound as he headed East to Portsmouth and as I then pulled into the left lane some dick in a great big Chrysler 300C came right up behind me and sat on my arse with his bright great big f*cking xenon HID's right in my face so can't see.

When there was a break in the left lane I merged left to let him overtake and he does, i looked over to see what kind of person it was (expecting old man, as you do) but oh no. It was some early 30's guy, wearing hipster glasses, chewing gum and wearing what looked like the top half of a suit. What made it even better, was that he was looking right back at me with his fist slightly curled and rocking it back and forth calling me a wanker.

Why people do this, i do not know

I then decided to take advantage of my newfound power and torque from my remap last night, downshifted and just left him there. Oh, and come on, i couldn't resist but just after i pulled in front of him i had to show the finger through my rear window... That's acceptable right? 0_o

Didn't see him after that! Surprised how well a 5 can pull on a motorway after a MS install and a proper map

If i see him again on a country road he'll be going off into the trees if he even considered trying to keep up

Yep, 300C drivers tend to be wanna be gangsters. Most of them surprisingly small in such a big wanky yank tank.

Right up there with militant, Chelsea tractor drivers IMHO.

spooky coincidence .

Just got into my car after filling with petrol and a 300c drove past and pulled in front of me about 6' from pump meaning i couldnt get past it! Old dear got out and stared at me and i called out she' d blocked me in . She said she wouldnt be long filling up! Told her politely i need to go and she needs to move . The look of disgust on her face! She moved i drove past to her mouthing off but i gave her a smile, wave and a blast of noise from my exhaust!

Jimmy, please dont

Time to throw my hat in the ring because I've got a Eunos and 300 CRD.

sounds like you just came up against a Knob Head James.

I have the 300 CRD for work and most of the time its just motorway, Comfort, Power and as far as Im concerned one of the best looking cars on the road. if you disagree, tough you can kiss my Gangsta ass Mo Fo. Plus it was cheap, hasnt let me down yet (fingers crossed), and if you havnt driven one give it a go its an experience.

Im always nice to 5 drivers when im in the 300. Audi and BMW drivers though its a different matter. If anyone in a 5 gets a black 300 CRD slowing down to check them out it could be me

As to the Eunos I started to write about it here but its getting too long so Im going to put it in the Readers Rides section.

300C is one of the most aggressive looking cars ever made, and as such appeals mainly to short men with small man syndrome, who have no driving soul. I generalise, so don't take it personally. If it were a great car, people would know it was a bargain and buy them.

PT cruiser on the other hand appeals to women who see it as a Picasso with a style statement.

They are half right. The Picasso is shit, and women with no soul buy them, because they looked a bit different. The PT takes different and replaces it with mickey mouse.

A few years back I rented a car from Chicago airport for 2 weeks, and we got an auto V6 PT cruiser in cream, to attend a family wedding in Ohio.

All I can say is that ALL the women, loved it, and all the blokes Knew instinctively it was shit. Even the American blokes, who are usually well aware that their nation's automotive offerings are the piss take of the world, but will defend their god given right to build shit cars, and carry guns and try and force both of them on the rest of the world, but in this case, as one, they said "that is shit". The dash was a silver painted plastic, which reflected the summer sun into your eyes. The switches, were Clunky and crude, and often ergonically ill judged in size shape and positioning. The handling was dire, the brakes adequate, the auto box rough.

To top it all. We went to the airport in a mk3 astra, and all our luggage fitted the boot. Not so the PT cruiser. We travelled 6 hours with a suitcase in the middle of the rear seat. Which stopped the kids fighting.

The ironic thing is that my dad rented a subaru legacy V6 built near Indianapolis and they'd managed to fuck that up too.
