"WTF is a 330d? Never seen that before"

Otherwise, obviously the interminable questions/polls about which colour combination they should get!

Oh yes, I'd forgotten that one

Other spin offs include:

- when is the US going to, sorry 'gonna' get diesel?
- can we get lemon in the US?, and of course:
- how hard is lemon to keep clean? (as if there's an empirical answer, like 7.2...)

The "which color should I choose" drives me nuts. Do you mean you are smart enough and capable enough to have selected a very sophisticatedly engineered machine, but you don't know what color to get? Next thing we will be hearing is "does anyone know where I can get a larger after-market glove box?".

I read that it's actually more like 8.8, but black is an easy 4.1

what pisses me off more than stupid questions is when the original poster starts acting fresh because members are flaming him for asking a dumb question. no need for name calling, just say you're sorry, and do a search

No, when you stop asking questions where the response is "Search".

I picked color. But like some others have said, the most annoying thing is when I click on a post and have difficulty trying to read their 1st grade reading-level English (or worse, ghetto slang)

1. When you no longer post questions like that one to long time members.
2. When you have read the owners manual and don't ask "how do I get my side mirror to go down?"
3. When you readily admit that you are far from being an expert, but you have some practical knowledge and are just as willing to share it as to receive more.

It has nothing to do with post counts or join dates. Some of our best members came in the door with great knowledge and made immediate contributions. Others have been here for over a year and still ask dumb questions...

Theres a difference between the English level and the slang. I cant stand the slang but there are a lot of international owners here who dont have the language down. Lets cut them a little slack as they are trying as hard as they can to connect with us.
