I agree, it is sad that the board has received this type of posting again. Remember back a few months ago when I suggested banning someone?, boy did I hear about it. I like your idea of having to registering before posting. Also you could make it so you had to supply a VIN number, and as long as they got it with in the range..... or something.
I'm not trying to offend anyone or the board, maybe I'm just trying to explain it, and I am NOT defending the actions of others on this board,
All Right ... OK ... here goes ...
It seems to me that roadster and coupe owners are different. I know people do not like to hear this, but maybe it is time to setup a 'Z3 coupe' board and rename the Z3 to 'Z3 roadster'. I too have heard the + and - on this. Like I have heard and have been told, "Z3 board is for fun". A Z3 Roadster is a lot of fun, going for "drives", feeling the open wind and road. A Z3 coupe is not about going for "drives" and feeling the open wind and road. It's a different feeling about the car, about driving the car, how you feel inside the car, and for some of us what we plan to do with the car is different. It's hard to say this but I'm a coupe person and I'm not a roadster person. I do not picture myself inside a roadster nor do I believe I have the same mindset as a roadster owner. I hate to say it this way but maybe we are dealing with two different mindsets, roadster owners and coupe owners. I am just trying to step back and look at this at the 20,000 foot view.
