Spoken truly and good job.
That said (no flame here) everyone who comes here needs to keep in mind that this is a public forum and we are not proffesional mechanics. Like any information that you come accross in life, you need to try and find out for yourself if it is true or not. Anybody can write anything and you have no way of knowing if it is legit or not with out checking out the information. Also since this is a public forum some people do want to show off their cars and have their name all over the internet. That is fine. But if the new posters do any back ground checking on who posted what and actually check out the information in the replies to their questions, there should be no problems of the new guys getting bad info.
There are only a few people on this forum that I actually pay attention to when they post and trust what they say, I read most of the posts that come through this forum, so I have a pretty good idea of who provides reliable info. However, I always call my friend/mechanic (bmw god) after posting a question here to see what he says about it. Granted not everyone can have friend who is also a bmw master tech and owns his own repair shop. But everyone can by a $25 dollar chiltons from Barnes and Noble and read a little bit to find out if what the are being told makes any sense.
Yes people should make the effort to distinquish between what they know to be fact and what they think that they have heard or what they think that it might be. However, they don't have to and usually those poeople fall into the category of wanting their post counts higher and want to be all over the interent or at least this forum.
But the question I have for you nycbmw325is is what should be done? You are great at pointing out problems, but realistic solutions are a little lacking...
