Tempted to switch to a debadged C63 coupe

I love my SLC despite its flaws. Loved both SLKs before that.

But I am really SICK TO DEATH. of 20-somethin idiots in Mustangs, BMW M3s, and even crappyy sedans with 4 bangers trying to cut me off just to bait me into racing.

Last night latest incident this mouth breather in an M3 swerves over to block me as I switch lanes to pass him. So I switch back and he swerves to block again. Then as I finally get alongside him to pass, he floors it and gets ahead, then taps his brakelights a few times and falls back alongside me.

Look jerk, you were going 40mph in a 60mph zone. I was trying to pass because my cruise control was set at 65mph. I dont want to race your dumb butt. I don't need you swerving to block and making me brake hard to avoid an accident.

It's not even road rage. As soon as you make it clear you aren't in the mood to embarass them, they speed off and slow down again far ahead of you. They are literally just being tools to try and bait a race.

I get the feeling it is because the SLK/C look the part of a sports car. Tempted to move on to a C63 and debadge it to reduce the interference of life like this guy. Anyone else get this much and feel the same?

Sorry JB. I expected you'd be the first to respond due to your prolific supercharged escapades, but looks like my language made the response less entertaining. Just super irritated. It happened again earlier although to a lesser extent. Maybe San Antonio drivers just have a higher jerk ratio than other places.

I would not think your location would have sooo many jerks.
I don't encounter as many as I used to (see the driving story section for videos)
maybe my reputation or the car's reputation has preceded me.
I still pick my fights and would think that you could have taken the majority of the challengers if you felt up to it or it could be done safely.


You should have just disposed of the gnats in your dust. That is what I would have done

Even if u debadge another car, there will always be those with less that want to take you on

I use the GPS app that tells you where the cops are, then bait them into taking off just before you get to the speed trap...

Oh there are TONS here. Its a wealthy area and lots of kids with mommy and daddy buying them cars faster than their common sense. And it happens all too often with my wife in the car. She doesnt like it when I smoke them because unless I maintain a high speed, they catch up and their ego bruise at losing turns into road rage more often than not.

We get it with both SLKs.
The 350 gets it more than the 55!

Fine when you want to play, but pain when you don't (like your OH, mine doesn't like me to bite).

I think the 63 will get it too.

Obvious cameras are the simplest cure.
They are less keen when filmed.
Paint the camera orange, unless you want to do a Sarge.
We had to open a new section for just his clips.

If you get the C Car add some BLING to it and nobody will mess with you. Road Rage problem solved.
