Stop right here!
The study refers to Luxury cars in general, and even points out that Prius drivers are behaving likewise because their car is seen as a status symbol in NorCal.

Nothing in there to single out BMWs except a Google search snippet, which yields likewise results if you fill in Lexus or you-know-what.
(not with me though - Google search offers 'personalized' results to match your 'interests'...!)

If people who buy those cars behave like idiots it is their problem, or their countries. You will not see many jerk drivers in BMWs in Germany. That does not say a lot about the car, but maybe more about the country.

I am not a BMW fan, not at all even. But let stick to facts and behave nicely, and not ruin this thread about good looking cars, amongst which there are, I admit, some BMWs.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.16 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Most people are in the longest queue.
