    Have you noticed that all BMW indicators work on an MOT test, but the second they drive off the premises they pack in working??????? I think BMW should make this a recall issue and devise a field remedy.

    I just took my daughter up to her boyfriends house, and approaching a T junction I have a 1 series in front of me, and a 5 series behind me. About 80 yards from the junction I started indicating left. 1 series? Nothing. 5 series? Nothing. 1 series goes left, still no indicators and I follow. 5 series goes right, still no indication........

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH BMW DRIVERS??????? Are they a secretive bunch and take the view that its none of my damn business where they're going?

    Now the last time I sat in a BMW the indicator stalk was most definately on the steering column. Can anybody confirm for me that they are still there? They haven't for instance started fitting them in the glove box or on the rear parcel shelf? Anybody?

    Jeeez.......... rant over

    It is annoying as hell but I think its spreading to other cars as well now, unless they are ex-BMW drivers, then they can be forgiven a little bit.

    A lot of people dont bother to use indicators especially on roundabouts. I guess their lazyness is more important than my wasted time.

    No, I was paying attention. Audis have the same thing anyway. Difference is, Audi owners know how it works :yes:

    Yeah i totally agree BMW drivers are the worst drivers ever. I was driving home from work today and some twat in a 5 series decided to do a 3 point turn on a busy & constant flow of traffic road. As you can immagine lots of horns blaring but the twat seemed to think he'd done nothing wrong. What really annoys me is that top gear which is my favourite programme by the way have started labelling us audi drivers the cocks instead of the BMW tossers. Honestly i would say 75% of bad driving i witness where i stay resolves round BMW drivers. BMW drivers are the biggest dickheads around.

    A quick blink from the motorway indicators will suffice!
