As we have all seen there are two Doug Thom's (actually I know of about 10), one is a BMW owner (and a former A4 owner), and the other (me) that is an A4 owner (and former BMW owner). Note that we both like German cars!
My original message was in response to Doug A. Thom's post that was made (apparently not by him) to the A4.org board. Many user's on that board let me know about the postings and wanted to know what was going on.
I have owned 4 BMW's in the Past, and loved them dearly. I will not buy another, not because of the cars qualities, but because of the poor support and treatment I received from BMWNA and the local dealers. - I said this in my original post. I DID NOT SAY BMW's are bad. Some people just did not read carefully enough and jumped off the handle.
I now own a new A4 Quattro, which I enjoy, as much if not more than my BMW's. This is not to say that it is a better or worse car than any other car. It is my personal feeling.
If I have hurt someones feeling, my appologies.
To the Doug A. Thom - Please email me direclty (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your email address so that we may meet and chat.
To the rest of the BMW owner's on this board, be cool, polite, and wave when you see a German Car.
