So, which of the following questions / polls, having already been discussed at length, do you hate the most when they're brought up again as new threads?

Mine is the lease vs. buy question...

4) hey, how do I convert halogens to xenons?
4a) Can I get angel eyes with halogen headlights?
4b) what is this Lux, PIAA, BREX that you're talking about? Where do I get them

5) Blackline or no?
5) what's the best price? where can I but it?

MIne is color. Color is so personal. The other choices are up there to though (for annoyance factor). We must remember to be patient with the n00bs. After all we were n00bs too at some point.

Good point Jeff...I'm not trying to pick on the nOObs, I just find it funny that these things always keep coming up. Made me think about which ones I hated the most! Canucklion reminded me of a few others that I hate too!

I chose color too - only because "all of the above" wasn't an option.

Most of the others (except for the silly age polls and such) can at least contain some informative and interesting comments, albeit subjective in nature. But the "pick my color for me" threads are a waste of packets across the Internet.

+1 I agree, although my attitude towards noobs totally depend on if they're lazy or not. Noobs that clearly have done their research and still have unanswered questions, I'm very glad to help out if I can, on the other hand, I hate noobs that come in here and say "yo, I just gotz my new 335 yo, name me all the power upgrades I can do, give me the link and price"

I agree but I still try to politely suggest a search. In fact more often that not, I spend 30 sec doing it for them just to show how easly it is.

I agree

Although, I must say, the topic that is sure to fire up even the most hardened poster is the rebadging / M-badging question/discussion As well as, 'I'm 16 and my daddy just bought me a fully optioned 335i coupe, what can I do to rub it in peoples face' threads.

Yeah that is a good one. Read the brochure or the BMW car configurator to find out.

My pet peeve are all the questions regarding drag racing on the street -

Will a 335i/330i/325i out run a (insert every car made here)? If you're obsessed with drag racing, buy a freakin Mustang!

I feel much better now.

For me it's the colour question. The other questions are just lazy ones (eg not checking BMW's website). If you can't pick a colour by yourself, you've got issues.
