Ken, no you still don't get it. There may be dozens, even hundreds of people who read this board to get or give help re E46s. Probably most of them do not even post a followup. There are a relative handful, probably less than a dozen who opine about what car can kick what other car's butt (if I want to know that sort of thing, Automobile, Car and Driver, and Road and Track do a far better job than what I find here) and think and write at the same level you do. You have chosen (Alan has asked us to refrain - and I guess I'm guilty of responding, so this will be my last on this topic) to enter into a feces throwing contest with those of your ilk but all of the other people who read this board (the majority who do not use foul language and don't knock other cars be they BMWs or OEM or, as I said, even post on this board) are subjected to it. If you want to engage in flaming, there is a flame board where you're likely welcome.
: :: Ken, it's not just that you said "nasty stuff" about 32Xi BMWs. You were crude and immature.
: Ya, like the comments some of you made on other cars are mature.
: ::While you may have intended to offend only the folks who think their BMW 32Xi is better than other cars (I don't have a problem with that, by the way, only with the way some of them express it)
: I do agree 3 series are better than Integra or Maxima, and lots of other cars. I bought a 540 cuz BMW makes beautiful cars. My problem is NOT the way some of you offend other cars, it's rather they just seem to be either stupid or blind. They actually really think a 323 can smoke a Maxima or a 170hp Integra, even a Type R. Also when they compare the 0-60 numbers, they use manual bimmer compare to auto Max.
: ::your foul language is unexcusable (same for you, Hassan).
: May I remind you that I did not started using foul language until someone called me a pimp and a drag-dealer?
: :Demonstrating a lack of civility is not likely to engender respect from anyone, regardless of what you or they own. Pretend your mother reads this board and recognizes your "handwriting."
: Agreed, tell those to your fellow 3 series owners.
: :I used to be of the opinion that cars like BMWs were driven by men but I getting the impression a lot of them are driven by foul-mouthed boys....
: True, I saw plenty of boys drive 32x. Man DO drive 5 series.
: ::or maybe you really don't own one, maybe you are really a 16-year old boy who likes to pretend. In any case, grow up!
: If you wanna a pic, I will send you one. Do you have a pic of ur 32x to show???
: Bottom line: You still don't get it. How you treat others is how you will be treated.
