: 1) It's improper to insult someone else post as "idiotic" just because it sounded "smug" to YOU. I never insulted your posts even though I disrespeced some comments the past.

***It's improper to troll for flames on a Z3 Board by making the comments that you did.

: 2) If it was either an offending or inappropiate post, let the Board Moderator delete it. If you don't have that right, it doesn't mean you can/should insult it.

***HAHA, So if I am not a Moderator, I can't disagree with eithor your tone or your content?

If my post was SO bad, a mob of posters would have criticized.

***Really? Is that in the rules somewhere?

It's just that you don't have much sense of tolerance in differences.

***I don't? I post repeatedly to the Boxster Board to get Boxster owners to join in on Z3 Drives. I don't have much tolerance for trolls...

: 3) As an "owner" of both, I can compare both in details and over a long turn, with objectivity.

***That objective comparison is welcome here.

I don't always put the Z3 down (contrary to your recollection). I complimented it on its superb safety and structural integrity after a serious accident. I still think it's way better than a lot of other cars, including the SLK.

***That is the type of objective comment that fosters a positive relationship between owners of different cars.

: 4) Lease on Z3 is running out in March '00. We're not keeping it. We're keeping our 325i though - I think sports sedan is really where BMW excels.

***Your knowledge of that subject is greater than mine...I've never owned a BMW sedan.

: 5) I sense so much anger in the inner you.

***Do you work for the Psychic Network? Is this costing me $4.95 a minute?

Make friends. Make peace. Make babies. Don't make too many enemies, esp. if you have to create them...

***Good advice for anyone. Of course, had you heeded your own advice, you could have responded by clarifying your comment instead of propagating this head-to-head nonsense.

: Best of luck in life!

***You too!
