: I guess your immaculate verbal strengths and exquisite choice of words show how well versed you are about how dialups work and your high intellectual ability can differentiate between the writing styles of two different people. My previous post was the first time I visited/posted here and I did so because one of your members Kevin Kelly (a BMW owner) is a regular visitor of, had posted with the information about the impersonator. As a result I had to come to and set the record straight.

: I was civil about the whole thing, while you on the other hand surprise me being a BMW owner (not that classy, huh) start using all sorts of words depicting your limited verbal ability.

: I did notice your IP was in DC, want to race? In the tracks of course, 1/4 mi. Or are you the sore loser that was involved in the road race?

: Just be civil about it no need to be vulgar. There are a few BMW owners that visit on a regular basis but we do not tell them not to go there, besides as a tuner there might be a few tricks that I could tell you to make your BMW faster. I will admit though that the new M5 is a very respectable car and it would be the first BMW we buy if we plan on tuning BMW's, can you imagine a supercharged M5 making 600hp, I am drooling already.

some guys did tell me to leave when I first went there and most of the advise goes from me to them. Although one member feels that tire advice from my experience on my BMW is not applicable to a Lexus. Wow, that's an interesting thought. Anyway, of course anyone can build a fast car and add AP Racing calipers (my dream but my wife would kill me--unless I can hide a $5k upgrade from her) as many of us have done to lesser BMW's than the M5.

However, we always have the benefit of knowing we have manual transmissions. A true sports sedan cannot be an automatic. It just takes the fun out of it.

I convinced those guys to listen to me sometimes because I rarely argued absolutes--as there rarely are any. You have to give the GS credit where it is due but speak up when GS owners give it more than it should have (like absolutely better than 540i). I would hope we can refrain from being guilty of the same thing here.

Many of you guys drove a GS when looking at 540i's so some discussion is warranted but there is no reason to be disrespectful. I have never mocked a GS on their site, just the ones with 20" wheels, wings and slammed to the ground--they deserve it.

91 M5--can take a stock GS :-)
