Is there a reason the M class is called the M class? Does the M stand for something? Or did they just think it sounded cool?

No animosity - just truly amazed that anyone who owns such a car would not know its relevance.

This is honestly the first time I have heard such a thing. You owe it to yourself to do some research - seriously.

Oh by the way...there's some people asking what E36, E46 and what not mean in another forum. You want to go make fun of them too because they don't know as much as you do, ya snob?

I wouldn't want you to miss out on an opportunity to make yourself feel better than others.

Yeah I can dig not knowing everything. Some people don't feel adequate enough with themselves so they have to try and force people to see what they know and can do. Me I never much cared about all that.

There are several things in this world I know volumes about. And every single one I learned by asking questions. And before I asked the questions, I didn't know anything about those subjects. You got to start somewhere.

Hell 2 weeks ago I didn't know how to drive a stick. Now I'm annoyed that other people are in my way on the road. You can't learn anything if you don't try. (Okay okay...so other drivers irritated me when I was driving an auto too)

By the way, Alpine, excellent use of the smiley poking the other smiley witha stick earlier. Made me laugh.
