Agree absolutely, the forum for my old car was good, was very happy to find this one, it's true, a good forum and therefore community of other owners does make ownership so much better.

And +1 for the resurrecting old threads, I'd much rather find old the info in one thread than read 50 threads and find duplicate information in each, only to find the 51st actually contains the nugget I was after.

"I look at it like this. Owning an M5 is kind of like dating a slamming hot big-t...ed blonde, who is a pain in the *****, drains your cash, but screws like there's no tomorrow. Owning a Honda Civic or the like, is akin to dating a girl who is fat, ugly, smells a bit where she shouldn't, is a cheap date and doesn't screw at all (you don't mind). So yeah, I'll take the blonde." (Courtsey of Jetpilot718)

I think the "thank you" responses on the DIY threads are a real time waster. We all appreciate the help on our projects, but when researching a DIY, it takes for ever to sift through the "thank you"s to get to valuable feedback, or other ideas.

I am new to this forum, but I have found the search function almost unusable. I get either hundreds of matches, or none at all. Try searching for a thread on weather on not my CD changer will play CD +/- R's.

Maybe I am just a crummy searcher!

I'd like to have my username changed to HassanM5. I've tried sending a message to a mod but have gotten no reply. Don't know why we aren't allowed to just change usernames in the settings or something.
