On a recent road trip, EW explained that Chinese people have a very dim view of BMW drivers.
In addition to BMWs, he also suggested that Honda Accord drivers were held in low esteem. And I can understand why.
How people are attracted to a car in such a way that they drive in the same, shocking, way I can't quite imagine. I think the only similar view people have of a single vehicle in the UK would be that of the 'White Van Man'.
Honda Accord Man in China is definitely an observable phenomenon. Taxis aside (definitely a few blog entries there) Honda Accords make up a very large proportion of people performing dangerous, aggressive maneouvres.
Incidentally, the VW Bora is, apparently, considered to be a girls car over here. Is that true in the UK?
