Ladies/Gents

I'm new to this site and basicaly new to my E30
I bought my first bimmer (or beemer :rolleyes: ) 2 months ago and so far I am loving it (going from a Mk3 golf 2.0)
I hope to help out and have some good times here!
Here are some pics from the first few days I picked it up.
I've been fixing some minor issues (like the tailight bolts all broken and trunk full of water)

car looks like it is 2-3 shades of white/yellow, and the valance is bent up... how is that considered a "clean car" ??

You're right about the valance... (I will get it fixed) however the paint looks much better when it's cleaned up and waxed. Those are pictures I took right after I got the car (hence the salt/dirt covered exterior) . Since then I cleaned up the inside and out and it looks much better.
The steering wheel has a small momo imprint on the bottom so I am not sure if it's stock.

What is it with you kids? Its a non stop battle with you.

First off, I'm just as blunt in real life as I come off on the forums. Make no mistakes about it. I'm glad I don't live in Canada, however on the same token... I'm not thrilled to like in USA.

Besides.. I rarely goto meets anywhere, they are normally quite boring. Lots of kids with stock cars they think are all mad modded. Then they all go on a drive, and drive like they think they know how.

Its just an accident waiting to happen, and I would rather not be part of the cluster **** of tangled cars when they all crash :)

Well I am definately not a kid... and I definately don't think my bone stock car is "mad modded" not that I really want to do that anyways. That was the reason I sold my golf in the first place. Too much $ spent not enough made (but that's another story)
Regardless... Jordan, what kind of front lip is that on the E30 in your sig? (assuming that's your car)
Seeing as how mine is missing.

Clearly you have never been to a maX cruise. Safer than driving alone. I wish I was a kid and I'm proud to post that my car is showroom stock.

Lights: Welocme to maX and enjoy the site.

Lightsandsirens: Yes it is my e30, it is a Rieger Infinity front lip. Its low :)

Here is a closeup i took at the same time as i snapped my sig pic.

Spudboy: Well if your drives are safe, more power to you! But the overall maturity (or lack of it) here wouldnt make me inclided to go to a meet. All the meets around here tend to be littered with high school kids that think they are F1 drivers.

I think everyone can relate to that, and wouldn't want to be involved.

To be honest I was really impressed with the safety considerations of my first maX cruise. I had the same concerns as you. Members often complain that we should be going faster but it's not enough to ruin a great day. I'm of the opinion that racing should be kept to the track.

Say this back to yourself 3 times and tell me if it's a stock wheel.

jordan, the problem with you is that you are "too blunt".....but you do have some good input to offer...i don't think you're stupid, i just think you're very inconsiderate to new comers that might not poses the same knowledge.....

that being said,
if you think max is so crappy, why do you frequent it ? we are quite happy here without you...

Thanks for your insight. In the future you might want to consider trying a little harder on your insult.

How bout I still be blunt, but I present it in a more "polite" manner. Would that please you?

Yes I do have alot of input to offer. Yes I can be inconsiderate.

I never said Max was crappy, only that alot of the members seem to be know-nothing kids. I wouldn't say I frequent this forum, I visit 1-2 times a day at most.
