Why is it that some of you disparage other BMW forums? We're all enthusiasts and it would seem to me that in the persuit of knowledge, you guys would welcome any new information that may floating around out there, regardless of what board it comes from. I like this place and I hope you do not take offense to my candor, but this forum can be a bit thin on substance when it comes to new and relevant BMW information - and outside of a few mods and regulars, many comments are made based solely on speculation and personal opinion.
For instance - a comment from "powerm" in the taking delivery tomorrow thread... "PS As for competetor Forums. This one kicks ass...stick around"
Why do you see other forums as competitors, honestly? It's about enthusiasts learning and sharing, right?
As for a 2005 M3, yes, there will be one. In fact, there will be more than one... http://www.bimmerfest.org/forums/showthrea...26&page=1&pp=25
-Laguna Seca Blue no longer available
-new color: A30 (interlagos Blue)-- available with ZCS only (coupe only)
-New option package for coupe only: ZCS (Club Sport Package)
---modified suspension, more direct steering ratio
---M track mode for DSC
---cross-drilled compound brakes
---19" cross-spoke wheels
---cruise control delete"
The above is another board that I frequent, and while it may not be as technical as say, bimmerforums.com, there are several boardmembers who are either salesmen, general managers, techs or advisors - or in one case - one of the german members who actually works in the BMW Munich plant. He always has fresh info that few are privy to.
It is not my intention to attack the board or any of its members. It just strikes me that many of you are closed-minded and even threatened by outside intereference and personally, I feel it is counterproductive to the spirit of any enthusiast resource.
Just my 2¢.
