I'll tell you what's pathetic. These headlights. WTF even is that? Are those pre-face with the corner reflector removed? Or just plain Chinese amazingness? Ditch asap.

also, what's with the dead body covered in white trash bag sitting in your passenger seat?

Previous owner put the headlight lenses on, no idea.

And that was my stock wheels/tires. Photo was taking when I got back from Discount Tire.

This board has been like this for awhile now.. itís become a group of grumpy, old, holier than thou men that play keyboard warrior over car stuff... some of the guys are VERY helpful such as sailor, peter, jerry, timmy,, etc. but they are all very tight knit group of enthusiasts here and also very defensive when it comes to certain topics. This board is slowly dying as the new comers arrive and the old guys finally sell off their M5ís. If I were the OP I might be a little frazzled too. I wouldnít come here bashing because I ALREADY KNOW the backlash I would get from the other members. The piece the OP received looked like some eBay junk. Period DOT

OP:
If one moderator makes a public suggestion to only add new information (post 70),
and then you decline to offer same (e.g. post 96),
and then a different moderator issues you a private warning/infraction for being a nuisance,
and then you bump your own thread (post 105) w/o adding any pertinent information,
then you have proven all your critics in this thread to be right about you.

I'm sure some here wanted to learn more about the subject matter than about you. Unfortunately, the reverse happened.

Future readers:
You can expect some slack when the purpose of the thread has some potential, but the freedom to aggravate members here has to be earned. Best to stick to the facts when you join, establish some credibility, then spend it on irritation.
