Thanks for your opinions - which are obviously much more "WORTHY" than everyone elses - geez - where do you get off? Are you now the message board police? Maybe we should all contact you first before asking others for advice???

: I've been quiet long enough. This is getting to be too much. Some of the stuff that appears on this board is ridiculous:

: Should I get a stick or auto?
: Teach me how to drive a stick...
: What is "heel-toe downshifting"....
: I need an armrest for my car....
: I wish my car had rear maplights.....

: It's crap like this that makes BMW's a car for those seeking image, as opposed to being the Ultimate Driving Machine. Hell, there's guys on this board paying $34,000 for a 323i. For that money, the REAL driving enthusiast would buy a 328i MANUAL with sport package (the only necessary option). In a perfect world, the 3 series would only be available with a sport package and manual transmission, and would make potential drivers take written exams and drivers tests to see if they are BMW worthy.

: Maybe I'm going overboard, but it's embarrasing to tell people "I just bought a BMW", and instead of those people thinking "hey he must be a drving enthusiast", they think, "oh, another image seeker".

: On a positive note, Bruce and Preston are on this board, and are extremely helpful to the driving enthusiast.
