recently purchased my first bmw, not great but will change them for better
ones once i find out how to use the new digital camera:banghead:
Very nice, I love the color!:clap:
Damn she's beautiful :smoke::drool:
That's like my favorite car...:drool:
Why's the top pic mirrored?
cheers for the comments :thumbs:
the top pic was mirrored because it would have looked too similar to the other one - no memory card so could only take 6 pics
off to the nurburgring in 2 weeks with a memory card so will get some action shots then
I know this guy. He doesn't own this car. Who nurburgring's their car as soon as they get it? Don't you care about your car? Are you a millionaire? No, you aren't, because I know you.
This is an interesting development.
Is it Tech_N9ne?
I say we get a picture with a piece of paper that says "chris_knows is a pimp"...or something :laughing:
no you dont :doh:
yes i do :doh:
i thought you said i didnt own it? :screwy:
very much so, cant you see how clean i keep it :banghead:
i never divulge my finacial status, but i let you into a secret...........no! :mrgreen:
i just said that (see comment above :screwy: )
you still dont :screwy:
but thanks for you comments!
I believe you own that car, because you show wit, and inteligence in your response....true to Brit style lol (I know you're living in Irland, but I seem to remember you saying you are from UK?)....Nice motor!
I believe you own that car, because you show wit, and inteligence in your response....true to Brit style lol (I know you're living in Irland, but I seem to remember you saying you are from UK?)....Nice motor!...Oh, I love white cars too...dnno why, most people think it's boring, I think they look more upmarket.
:laughing: cheers, i do have the direct debot mandate to prove i pay for
it, or perhaps the receipt?
perhaps that is going too (far too) far!
anyway, white and phoenix yellow were the only two options available within my price range and beside i like white too
there be crazy people out there:screwy: but it all makes for interesting threads
I wish i could touch it. :drool: :hi: :mrgreen: :thumbs:
Looking good man! What are your plans with it?
P.S. if you didnt notice im a fellow M3 owner. I went for the e36 though. For how much I paid for my e36 I could have bought an e46, but in my eyes the e36 is more of a race car, less luxorious more coneccted to the road, etc. The e46 is more of a "bmw"
If I paid for a BMW, I'd expect to get a BMW...:laughing:
nothing major at the moment, 19" to replace the standard 18"'s which see a
little lost in the flared arches
considering a 3 stage re-map with thorney motorsport in the uk
nice car yourself, i like the e36, but actually found the handling a little soft. the e46 seems much stiffer and taut and comparatively speaking (e36 vs e46) is much more 'race car' - then again i could have just drove a dud
Nice car! I'm sure you can understand the skepticism, because we do get a lot of posers around here.
No, you don't get it do you? There is no skepticism, this is FACT. He
does not own this car. I KNOW this.
I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't own it, but can you prove it? i.e. Who is it? lol
We'll just see if he shows up with pics from Nurburgring in a couple of weeks.
Listen you plumb, this bloke shows more in his posts to prove that he
actually owns this car than say a twelve year old would do. I mean, he's
gone into great detail about how he owns it and seems to know what he's
talking about. Lets face it, the alternative is the likes of you, What. And
I for one think you are said twelve year old....
*Hopes he does own an M3 lol*
i find it quite interesting that i join a forum, post a introduction then
post some pics of my car, which by the way i have every right to be proud
of, then have individuals from half way across the world
1) claim to know me
2) claim i dont own the car
3) seem to require conclusive proof of ownership
what exactly is the problem? do you require every new member to provide catagoric proof of ownership? perhaps if id have joined owning a yellow 86 datsun then i wouldnt be questioned?! that is very probably a certainty.
half of me thinks why should i be put in a position whereby i have to prove to individuals i have never met and never will that my car is infact MY CAR the other half thinks even if i do post pics of me at the alfa romeo nurburgring trip then how does that prove i actually went when no one here has ever met me, seen me, knows what i look like
certainly not a very welcoming forum is it
It's because it's such a nice car that some of us have troubles believing you :ohcrap:
wow i have a stalker! maybe a fan? bunny boiler!?
well your right, im not really me, im someone else! :clap: congratulations there :thumbs:
perhaps if you'd be so kind to let me know exactly who i am as i will need to change bank and passport details etc....
many, many thanks in advance
First off, I don't know where you're getting that the forum as a whole has
been calling you a liar. Only What has done so, and he's been nothing but
trouble since the day he joined, as far as I know.
By the way What, if we're so idiotic why don't you stop making unsubstantiated claims of your own and prove that what you say is true? Your word isn't particularly persuasive. Produce substantial proof or stuff it, ok?
Now, back to the M3 owner. You seem to take things rather poorly. Certainly not a very welcoming forum? Have you actually read all of the people complementing your car?
Now seriously, if you can't understand why proof is necessary for cars like this, allow me to explain it to you. Had you been a little kid bragging on the internet about his brand new uber-exclusive sports car, you most certainly would not have been the first. Want to see an excellent example? Look up some of "Solar"'s posts. People make false claims about themselves on the internet all the time. Want to see another great example? Take a look at another member, "newyorker"'s posts, especially some of the threads he has started.
This is why we are skeptical when we see a member claim to have a car that most of us would not have.
I find it funny how you reconise the negative comments that some members are practicing, and yet ignor the possitive ones, that the rest of us are posting....
Why doesnt born to drive just post a picture of his car with a sign on it that says "StiMan is a pimpdaddy"? That would destroy What's claim of his not owning the car, and help convincing the rest of us that maybe slightly skeptical. It also isnt that much work. :thumbs:
cliffy / hondaman
i had thanked those for their initial comments yesterday, on the pervious page before 'mr what' posted his / her own views
i apologise to you if my post seem rather sweeping as a statement, it wasn't intended and upon re-reading it i can understand both your comments :oops:
it certainly wasnt my intention to go tarnishing everyone with the same brush so hopefully this post will rectify that
i understand what you say about children posting claiming to be someone they are not and driving the next super or ultra car and appreciate your comments as to why there is some skepticism as to whether i own the car or not
i am a member of a couple of forums, mainly an alfa one as a previous owner, but also a couple of bmw and m3 forum in the uk and never experienced the skepticism shown - perhaps this is my own ignorance and expecting all forums to be the same
to both of you i apologise
Then he'd be lying, because Chris_Knows is the pimp :laughing:
It's ok, I understand your frustration, but most members here have seen this scenario soooo many times before that it gets rather tedious lol. As I said though, due to what you've said so far, it seems that you do own that car. Just ignor 'What' as he's just a bored school boy...
I think that part of it is a location difference. In North America, an M3 carries a lot more weight than I feel it does in Europe. Obviously it isnt like a Focus or something over there, but I just feel like BMWs arent quite as lofty a car there as they are here. Someone having a M3 here catches attention more than if they had one in Europe. Of course I could be wrong because I have never been to UK, but when I was in Paris I saw tons of MBs and BMWs many as cabs--something that could never happen here because of the general large amount of respect for these vehicles and the fact that many of them are imported across that big blue wet thing that separates the US from Europe. :2cents:
Oh, no problems. Your frustration can certainly be understood when it
comes to members such as What.
In any case let's start over. Nice car! Looks like you take excellent care of it.
Alright, now I believe it :clap::drool: lol
Lol, nice air freshner. :thumbs:
Ok, we good.
lol, I think you drove a dud, either that or the euro versions are
COMPLETLEY different. I test drove an e46 and had the exact opposite
impressions as you. the e46 seemed more luxurious, not as connected to the
road, slower steering response, softer suspension. It was DAMN fast in the
straights compared to my car though. The e36 is more of a race car IMO,
more of a drivers car.
I dunno, different strokes for different folks. E46's are by no means slouches.:thumbs:
Sounds like you should have driven a CSL instead!...
I'm not entirely sure we got those over here....=*(
Just a stripped out M3 really, alot lighter!
Has a bit different body kit too, looks slighty better imo.
Sorry, I misread your post....I thought you hadn't heard of it lol. Yes, they do look a bit nicer.....I like my luxuries too much though....although the CSL still has A/C so that's all good I guess lol!
Well, I didn't really know anything about it cept that it looked a little different, and had to be faster. Why would it be a different trim level if it wasn't?
CSL= Coupe Sport Light
aka, its lighter, the trunk floor is literally made of cardboard.
I'm wondering where "What?" went now after he posted that pic to prove it is his car.
back to class? the asylum? maybe planning a witty retort
In my experience with the likes of him.....I fear he'll be back and still insisting that you dont own the M3 lol
what car did what? say he owned?
I didnt see him post
Yeah in like a week or two.
Man I hate his name....posts containing it are so bloody hard to read lol. He didn't I dont think, I was refering to born to drive's M3!
ahh everytime i post i confuse myself :laughing:
its definitely born to drive's car though:clap:
sorry peoples, should have introducced myself properly - its matt
welcome to CF Matt :thumbs:
Are you stupid? I have completed grad school. I have a job. You DON'T
know me. Stop trying to ruin my image.
Many cars have cardboard trunks, Zalight. Let go of TopGear.
Cliffy, you were right...
I'm still going to insist that this isn't his car. I know this for a FACT. You bitches may believe but I know the truth. There is no point in proving myself to you all. Go ahead and live in ignorance. This is what separates a bitch from a "What". Ignorance.
Can you prove it in some other way rather than just saying you know him? lol
im intrigued by what image your feel you have and how it is actually
insist away! go crazy and fill your boots
conclusive proof would be great!!
wasnt aware that mans best friend was here? is that the four legged variety with a wet nose!?? amazing how they write so elequently!!
no, no please feel free!
im sure everyone here will take heed of your advice amd mow live out the rest of their lives in ignorance! do you charge for this professional advice?
ignorance seperates you from a dog.......... really doesnt say much does it
Why do you have to seperate everyone of my sentences? They're meant to be together. They work as a unit.
Haha, you guys have to admit that was damn funny!
it means i can reply to each comment you make and give them the time and
effort they so very, very much deserve!
then stop using paragraphs
of course they do.........in your opinion
zalight what have the mod's you have made to your car done in respect of
throttle response, power, torque etc??
did you use beemer specialists?
whats are your plans for the future?
I have a Jim Conforti cold air intake, a UUC twin silencer exhaust, Active
Autowerke track pipe and a Jim conforti Shark injector.
What do you mean by "beemer specialists"? Are they a company in the UK? Or do you mean did I use people who specialize in bimmers to install them?
Answer to both questions:
I haven't used them if they are a company, I ordered my parts through www.eurosporthighperformance.com and www.KOperformance.com
As far as who I had install it, I did it all myself.
I'm still a little skeptical, born to drive. Can you please do the same
thing again, except this time, take a piece of paper and write "CF rules"
or something along the lines of this:
I'm skeptical, but I've been shown up before. Perhaps you can prove me wrong?
I think I'm going to do that gearshift thing on my truck just for shits and giggles :laughing:
what member had a diablo?????:drool:
DiabloSV, wonder where he went :ohcrap:
Probably to a Lamborghini forum or something :laughing:
His wife was hot too :laughing:
I still check out his site from time to time lol...Still no videos :ohcrap: lol
lol, I didn't know he did that. Cept Matt, you need to put something like
Or post a picture of a naked girl :laughing:
:laughing: so what your really after is a naked girl lying across my
bonnet holding a sign (covering her modesty of course) declaring that Car
i shall just go :banghead:
Comon, don't let Golaus spoil your fun! :laughing:
No, I am not stupid.....I do not like being called stupid by some spotty
teenager whom hides behind his computer screen either. Also, it might be in
your benefit to take note that in every post you make, you are infact, a
post closer to a Ban.....again :banghead:
It's ok, we got your name in your intro I believe, I was refering to WHAT's name being anoying when I said about it being confusing....I assume that's what you're refering to?....
Which what? WHAT the person or what word? What?:laughing:
I agree, he said he wrote the picture out and put it on the car and took the photo, why not take 1 extra step and put "Car-Forums" ?
And What? hasn't shown his face in here since...wonder why.
I didn't call you stupid, I asked you if you were stupid. And I don't know
of any other way to communicate to you people but "behind a computer
screen". If I'm hiding, we all are. If you want, I'll give you a number
or a P.O. Box if you want to communicate to me in some other form. I have
no reason to hide.
Haven't shown my face? I responded like, yesterday.
Which is why I wrote the following...
And yet, What? has still shown absolutely no conclusive proof that he knows
this person or that this person is lying. Matter of fact, he seems to be
avoiding the issue.
Very nice! I just sold my 2003 BMW 325i...it was fast and alot of fun to drive! I hope that you enjoy your new wheels...:clap:
He's busy with his brand new baby daughter and new Ferrari. We talk often.
Ooh, by new Ferrari, do you mean new to him, or new fromt he factory? What kind? :drool:lol
I honestly couldnt say. All I remember from the photos is that it's red and he sold the Lambo for like 145k or something like that. I'll have to ask him next time we talk.
I still don't believe it's yours, if you really want to prove it is write greekwarrior on the ownership papers. :laughing:
:laughing: nice try!!
Damn hehe, nah man i f*cken love m3's, looks hot in white. :thumbs:
I agree, I love white cars :drool:....unless it's a Citroen Saxo or something, then I just thik they forgot to paint it lol!
So umm.. when is he going to take another picture that says car-forums on it?
I think he left:
no, not left been away for a week then went to the nurburgring over the
bank holiday here
waiting for the digital photos to be sent through but these were taken for me
these are from the journey down with the alfa romeo club im still part of
nice! Looks like a lot of fun man!
Did you do the full 'ring?
Uhhh, are you smoking in your M3?
Whats wrong, I do it all the time ;)
Only I do it with the windows and sunroof open....
Uhh, you do it enough, and it smells like smoke inside your car....it's a BMW, it's not supposed to smell like smoke....:laughing:
Nice pics, looks like fun!
where were you driving to?
looks exactly like the highways here, and I mean identical....
edit, just noticed its the nurburgring....ill be damned :laughing:
What if it's tire smoke :wink2:
I obsessivly clean my car, so it usually smells like leather protectant.
BMW's are amazing especially the m3. congrats!:clap:
damn what a beauty, congrats and try not to get it dirty. :mrgreen:
That's not as foul as cigarette smoke... :puke:
Nice sig Phantom100. Heh...
Once again, born to drive nice car.
Lol, I only just noticed that one....*tries to stay on topic*...yes, nice car, again...lol
Pee Pee.. or that's what it looks like that guy is doing.
:laughing: :laughing: :laughing: no not pee-pee-ing, he was checking the
bus timetable as we couldnt believe on a barren road in the middle of what
resembled a ploughed field they had buses running
i appreciate here that this might sound daft to the americans here but your country is so vast and you do have a solid, reliable, modern infrastructure, most of europe doesnt!!
That bmw looks "sexy" in that photo.. God, what I would do for an M3....
You should be greatfull for what you have just received! :wink2:
Which? The 06 Accord I got May 22 or the 01 525 I got two weeks ago? lol
Now ya mention it...the Accord more so than the beemer lol...jk, I prefer the European Accord to the US specced version....(If memory serves me, the styling's different on the two?)
That is correct, your Euro spec Accord is our Acura TSX if I'm not mistaken
(which I absolutely love)...
You are such a copy cat.
