I reported it after ///M-Rated comments equating convertibles to dishwashers.

I think derogatory comments about dishwashers are completely out of place on Bimmerfest and should be nipped in the bud.

I believe that I suggested that 'verts are less waterproof than dishwashers. Therefore, in the current NE weather, I would prefer to travel in a dishwasher than a 'vert...probably on a pots and pans cycle.

An E93 should not be compared to a dishwasher. Just try to name one with hydraulic open/close like a fine BMW.

Unless the dishwasher does double duty as the garage door opener.

In your case, may I suggest "extra rinse"?

I'm imagining a hydraulically operated garage door....it opens with a quiet whoosh, in one swift movement. I must have it.

Nextgen Retractable Hard Top operates in one elegant, 5 sec motion?

I say: Why not? If we can drop a pair o'SUV's on Mars....

I really wasn't offended as a vert owner, but I was offended as a comedian.

If you would just take your personal relationship issues to JDate, things here would have a chance to get interesting.

Here, let me buy you out of this thread. What's your price? I'll PayPal you.

I won't lie, I can be bought. I think the other forum members should figure out an appropriate figure to divorce me from bimmerfest. I will obviously have to be able to continue the same lifestyle as I have now....so folks, how much should BJ pay to have me leave?

Lord Help Us

Have you been wondering where D-rated Sex Machine has been?

Check this out...behind that furry countenance lies a video game hero. I think it is about a goat taking on human form to save the world in 2027, but I could be wrong.
[NB it is not a driving game.]

If I follow this correctly:

It has been suggested that wet mice aren't intelligent, especially in large groups.

If you drive a 'vert, you are likely to get wet.

Therefore, 'vert owners are as intelligent as a large group of wet mice.

I think you'll find my logic flawless.

Extending you logic, if Furby was so in lust with an M3 E93 and trying so hard to acquire one, does that make him a wet mouse wannabe?

Furballs get their own categgory. We are a suspect class and therefore I can sue you for your furbism!

@//goat boy- the cute picture of a wet mouse will allow you to slide with your spelling comments. It won't happen again, so watch yourself. Though finding a picture of a sack of wet mice would be awesome

Perfectly clear. Your new avatar is a helpful visual aid.

On another topic, this morning I passed a slightly ratty-looking, slammed, E38 7er wearing the vanity plate, "AMG LOL." Discuss.

I believe the wet mouse wannabe76 (WMW76) used "anti-bacterial" at the end of the sentence, not the beginning, so the correction (antibacterial) had the appropriate lower case for the noun. This isn't Germany where nouns have to continually announce their importance, regardless of their location. The inverted commas, sorry "quotes", were there to emphasize the correction. The period/full stop was deliberately placed outside the inverted commas/"quotes" to emphasize the end of the sentence and add weight to the following one. However, the item that required the correction was "anti-bacterial.", with the "captured" period/full stop, so I am willing to entertain your comment in this regard.

Nah. Dr. Cook has searched for worse things on his university owned, taxpayer funded computer. I'm pretty sure you're safe. Report back!

I did a Google image search for "sack of wet mice" and there were pictures of Sarah Palin and Donald Trump on the first page.



Try it yourself.
