Exactly, a few people might question why I am resurrecting a 5 year old thread but the consequences of asking a too-common question are much harsher haha It is the greater good and the right thing to do.

Thats the one that drives me nuts. If I act like a good boy and do my searches and find a relevant thread but it doesnt quite answer my question... I post in it and some one says... geeze this is an old thread..

Whereas if I wouldve started a new thread someone would say "bet if you searched you would find that answer"

I HATE double standards.

Cant have it both ways yanno?

I don't disagree with you.

But I have to say that I never had anybody gave me a hard time for resurrecting old threads. In fact I dont remember if anyone else ever gotten a hard time for resurrecting old topic on this forum.

So post away. Dont' be afraid to say "who likes Eisenmann exhaus?" or whatever. Some jerk will tell you to look for the last thread, but ignore him and make new friends.

Good luck!
Actually look at this way. It also for your benefit. For a member who just joined the forum they might not feel this way, since they always seems in a hurry try to find the answer.

For the other who are researching certain topic, how do you think they will feel when they search for a particular topic. i.e "Eisenman exhaust" and it come back with 100+ threads...

I would rather keep less number of threads as minimum as possible and you just have to go throught those thread to find the answer you're looking for.



The chances that the question a newbie has, it has already been asked before. So I myself, always search first.
After all the E39 M5 has been around for a while.

I am forever trying to figure out how everyone is posting large full-size pics without doing it as an attachment?? I tried to copy and paste, but that does not work...

Yes, this is the best board I have encountered in my whole life and I am positive that I will never find a better one. It completes the M5 ownership experience.

The M5board was actually part of the deciding factor when buying my car just because I knew if i had an issue or a question there would be a reliable place to look and not many people are as devoted to a car as the beast owners.

+1 to that. I bought my first bimmer last fall, the WIP 95 318ti that currently serves as my daily commuter, largely on the quality of the compact's US forum base at 318ti.org, since I knew if I had any problems there was likely someone else who'd had the same problem and found a solution.

As I'll hopefully be finding an M5 this year to either replace it or complement it in my garage, I'm excited to find just as active a community here.
