Ever pull up to a light and.....
Ever since I bought my SLK 230 (poor little automatic) a few months ago, I noticed that drivers in the area just seem to be a bit more aggressive towards me. I pull up to a light, any light, and all of a sudden the car next to me wants to be in a light to light race! I generally ignore it for about 20 or 30 feet, then I fricken reel them in. I'm not prone to this kind of behavior, but again, I feel I have to uphold the honor of my little SLK! If the aggressor's aren't in the lane beside me, then they're in my trunk, and we all know that with the top down, there isn't much trunk. I guess I just don't get the mentality of it all. If this keeps up I might have to by another newer and more powerful SLK and suppress all the local's until they become demoralized.
Anyone notice this kind of stuff after they got their SLK? (note: been thinking about buying an additional SLK anyway!) I recently inherited a lot of money so buying isn't an issue!
