Sorry, but can someone tell me what "LOL" is supposed to mean? I'm new to this internet/chat board business and haven't yet gotten the lingo down. I generally enjoy the E39 forum and have learned a great deal already. Too bad that people can't be more polite here, though. As a newcomer to this board, I notice it, but you are probably all used to it by now. It's really surprising, especially for a group that owns such great cars. Perhaps those who actually own BMWs aren't necessarily the ones who are acting up. It would be better for those of you who are being "flamed" not to respond to as*%!&oles; they will just go away. Anyway, I'm waiting for my 2000 528i and can't wait to get it. And yes, I'm a nice guy, and if someone wants to flame me for this comment, I won't be surprised, and I won't respond. I'll just figure you have nothing better to do.
