Apparently a majority of BMW owners in my neck of the woods don't know what a BMW Is for too. Most drive them like they're grannies cars or they think they own the and and ignore rules and common sense. My pet peeve is the buying a BMW for its performance then taking corners in ultimate driving machine at a blistering 5 mph........
Haha... I am with you 100%, but what gets me even more (and I drive an Audi A3 I might add), what gets me is when I am following a racked out 4x4 pickup truck, and they slow down to like 2 mph to go over a RR track crossing, or a parking lot speed bump. I'm not advocating doing rally car speeds over RR tracks, but come on. I'll cross the same track in my lower slung Audi at 25mph with no problem, and they are babying their big bad DIESEL POWERED DODGE 4X4 at a crawl. I shake my head, laugh, and think, "What a pu s sy. Why you even have a big truck??"

Same as a sporty car. Again, I'm not advocating F1 style driving on public roads, but if you come to a round-a-bout and you have a sporty car and there are zero or few cars in sight....aren't you SUPPOSED to hammer it and see how good the Pilot Super Sports hold?

Yeah You know what's worse...they drive big trucks yet can't handle its size for they take up 2 parking spots and took half an hour to back out of parking spot at Costco

My local Costco has big parking spaces. The ones near major metros have those small spaces that are hard to squeeze into.

If I had to choose among the 3 choices listed, I'd vote for the Camry Hybrid. My coworker has one and he loves it,
gushes over it every time we go to lunch. It's great transportation. Personally I'm ready to give up car ownership,
tired of it, give me public transit or driverless taxis, as long as it's not more expensive than car ownership, get to make use
of the garage like my neighbors, hoard crap in it for future recycling.

If I had to choose "Other", perhaps the Civic Type R or the Si. If you're ok with the styling of the Kia, then you're
prob ok w/ the Civic.
I think that his choices included the ICE Camry. One thing about the ICE version is that it gets it's performance and gasoline mileage from the 8-speed transmission and it's going to feel funny when it's looking for the right gear to be in when you want acceleration. You really have to stomp it from a start if you want acceleration. I'm not sure why they don't fix the low-end acceleration feel with a software update. The 2018 Camry handles a lot better than my older Camry but it's not a BMW. I buy these things because there are no surprises and it's really boring and maintenance is cheap.

I've had BMWs and Audis too. Great care but you pay so much for maintenance.
