Ive been a member on here for some time now. I have always posted any problems that I have had, and of course solutions that I have found. These types of Forums are VERY helpful at times.

Well recently I have decided to sell my car because i have bought a new one, some of you have most likely saw my posts for it. Well a new member to the forum named E46holic has been trying to cause some problems with me selling the car. He claims to be a parts tech at Glandale BMW in Southern California. He states that he has called BMW of Fort Myers in Florida, where I get my car serviced and the shop forman, Steve, was bad mouthing me personally and my car. Ill put the post link on the bottom so you can see what he has written for yourself. I personally could not see any BMW employee acting in this manner. What gain would he have? They would just lose a paying customer.

Well after going to the dealership and personally speaking with Steve and Aldo the service manager, they have more then proved that what he was saying was all lies. The biggest point to this is that they have told me about how people try and do this to stop potential buyers and try and get the car for a cheaper price. Maybe some of you have even came across this before, I never did.

So basically what I want you all to know, E46HOLIC has been trying to scam me. He has been saying these things about my car and my dealership and then will offer me money for the car. When I dont make a deal with him, he will come back with more lies, then offer me money for my car again.

So please dont fall for any lies that he may tell on here. I would even like to hear some feedback on this post. Im sure he will try and put me and my car down, but it deosnt matter anymore, the car is sold. He will not get it.


Thanks to all real BMW fans, for your help in the past and in the future.

E46holic never sounded like a BMW-fan, anyway. He sounded more like a low-life reseller playing dirty tricks for profit. You don't need to leave the forum for such scumbags. They are everywhere on the net. All you gotta to do is filter the responses and take into account what the MAJORITY says in (almost) unison. Some idiot once told someone to add engine oil into the brake reservoir and insisted on what he said. But the majority including me found the idea non-sensical and outright dangerous, so it's effect was completely subdued. B)

Thanks, I do remember that post about the "break" reservior. The funny thing was he was just asked to edit his post, but he insisted on being right I guess. Funny stuff, thanks for the reply.
