I agree he's ignorant but throwing around phrases like "jap cars" and "jap crap" IS racist.

racism:
n.
  1. The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
  2. Discrimination or prejudice based on race.
prejudice
n.
    1. An adverse judgment or opinion formed beforehand or without knowledge or examination of the facts.
    2. A preconceived preference or idea.
  1. The act or state of holding unreasonable preconceived judgments or convictions. See synonims at predilection.
  2. Irrational suspicion or hatred of a particular group, race, or religion.
  3. Detriment or injury caused to a person by the preconceived, unfavorable conviction of another or others.
Not to threadjack but a lot of what is called racism in the US is actually just prejudice. There is a difference though some overlap.

All it does is give BMW bigger market share and allows them to make the cars YOU want better

If BMW have to make different cars that appeal to people who would previously have bought an Audi or a Merc or even a Subaru, why not?? It's more people who can enjoy BMWs

BMW hasn't lost it's core values - all the new cars still handle, sound great, have great performance and in most cases looks pretty damn good.

If I needed a "van" I'd have a BMW van above a Merc van, if I needed a small town car - I'd want a small BMW town car with BMW traits rather than a VW Polo or whatever.

Big up to BMW for giving people a bigger choice of vehicles
+1..

You don't think his posts reek of point one under the definition of racism? He believes Japanese cars are crap because they're Japanese so he believes that the race of the builders/designers is affecting their ability to manufacture a quality car.

It's also the differences in the use of words, you use the word RETARD but to me in the UK that is a slur of the highest order on both physically and mentally disable people. It often very difficult to get pass these differences in lingo and can often causes conflict because of this fact.

Sorry for moving off topic.

yeah, the 3 should be the smallest if you're referring to the e30 "3"! i think that they should build a car for those that enjoyed those early-gen 3ers.

I agree with you.

His posts reek of bitterness... he thought that my parents paid for my car when in reality everything is funded by me. Lo and behold, when this was explained he disappears...

I guess it doesn't help that Papelblown lost it for his team.
