You'll probably find that alot of BMW drivers are nothing more than just that - BMW drivers. I think forum-friendly BMW owners in Australia are few and far between. BMWs are still more of a snobby car than a geeky car.... if you know what I mean. Its more of a status symbol than an enthusiast scene to most owners.

And the fact that there is so few BMW parts suppliers and aftermarket specialists in Oz would be a reason why the internet users look towards the US and Europe for advice and upgrades. I almost never expect to get an answer from an Aussie when I put a question up in the 3-series section, cos I know the rest of the world has much more experience in all of this.

It *could* work if you persist with it over time. As the members arrive and the knowledge-base increases, the forum will keep drawing more people in. But its damn hard to get the snow ball rolling.

I just think that we could all use the Australian section of this forum a bit better to exploit the publicity it already holds. Maybe put a link to the Aussie section in signatures or something aswell....
