As the car of choice for jackwads?

It finally came to me, as a man in a Mercedes was holding up rush hour traffic to make an illegal u-turn - that over the past year or so I’ve observed the number of dillhole BMW drivers has been decreasing precipitously, while the number of mercedes being driven by total ass goblins has increased exponentially.

So it seems mercedes is now the car of choice for the expertly stupid who can’t drive well. BMW has for decades been the car of choice for those who think they know what cars are, but don’t actually. Now, apparently, the crown is being passed to another German brand.

Has anybody else observed this change occurring in the automotive universe? Or is this possibly a phenomenon located entirely within Austin, Texas?
