I was just wondering, do BMWs come with indicators as standard? Its just very few BMW drivers use them. Also, is the wiring on them when they are installed done correctly? It seems that on the rare occasion a BMW does indicate, it bares approximately no relation to what the BMW actually does. Hope somebody can help a puzzled motorist.

I assume by indicators you mean turn signals?

Yes, we have them. Yes, they work.

some drivers don't signal enough.
some too much...

I vary between signaling like a 100 yards other times i blink it once then move over or turn. or none at all.

and signaling doesnt mean that it gives you the right away. i hate people who merge in front of you which causes you to slam on the brakes. if they gave me a second or two, id give them space to merge.

my apologies for lack of clarity, over here they are called indicators, but yes, turn signals would be the one. It is always possible that over in North America BMW drivers use their indicators - certainly in the UK they dont...maybe its just a manufacturing issue on the european models.
as for being jealous, i wonder what of? if you want to get onto a mine is quicker than yours argument or some such then fine. My mate has a bmw 325...my vehicle beats it off the line comfortably. In fact, just the other week, i had a ferrari pull up beside me at the traffic lights...a nice 460. I beat that as well. 0-60mph (100kmh) in under 4 seconds does me fine.

I dont know why, but I started laughing histarically when you said it. cuz to me it sounded like mass amount of sarcasm and "I-cant-believe-he-is-asking-if-we-have-turn-signals''

LOL.

yeah, I have a few.
