Acronyms and abbreviations

Could someone please take the time and explain all the acronyms and abbreviatons used on this forum. I think it will help a lot of new comers. I myself have struggled to understand some of the acronyms. Just last week I learned what WOT meant and I've been a regular on this forum for over a year.

Who's up for the challenge???

Maybe the Moderators can make it a sticky when the list is completed.

I'm not talking about common Acronyms like: LOL and WTF. Everyone knows what those mean. I'm talking car BMW and car related acronyms like WOT, JB2HHR.... stuff like that.
