    BMW decided to tail gate me for miles just because I took the off ramp quicker then he could.
    usually most of people just see a 4 door car, just the Subaru and ST's seems to give the thumbs up when you drive by

    So far the RS seems to incite more aggression from other drivers than any of my other past cars which include an EVOVIII, M3, MCoupe, S4, RX8, WRX Bugeye, 2011 WRX (GR), Golf R32, Syclone, and Grand National. The M3 was a close second which I always chalked up to the BMW arrogant driver stigma that you tend to get even if you don't deserve it. In my opinion I would think the RS, especially a white one like mine, would get little if any attention. Maybe its my rural Midwest location playing into it as many of the aggressive actions encountered are big ram diesel trucks, and old ford ex-highway patrol cars which seem to be favorite in the rural area I live in. Its almost like they recognize the car and feel that they have to prove a point to mark their territory. So far really not much from actual performance cars though.

    The Focus doesn't, but the Abarth sure does. Especially in overcompensating dudes in trucks.

    Do you guys still experience aggressive drivers when they see your RS?

    Lately in South New Hampshire it's been the Audi guys. I'm always rolling my eyes when they get all hot and bothered.

    Of course there's the random kids in daddy's car that get all uppity.

    Mainly VW golf owners.

    They despise the RS and aggressively tail gate.
    Just let them through as with all other idiot drivers who use public roads as their F1 track.

    The brain says thank you when I do this.

    I've had occasional incitements to race from WRX STi's, but most people ignore me. Yesterday a guy in a Cayman blew by me at 30 or 40 over the limit after I showed him the way through a corner.
