What the heck is hoon?!

No seller's remorese. I'm keeping the E90. I do love it. I just want something that I can take a road trip in. Honestly that 'disconnected' calm quiet drive is something I enjoy....and when I feel like a little excitement, I have the 3er for that.

LOL, my post on 'the other forum' was moved... Those fanboi kids sure get insecure when someone isn't fawning over their 2nd hand baby.....lol

BTW, completing an order today for black rims fitted with contipro SSRs and TPMS for my current baby! (TireRack)

Hmm. I guess I need to go to Lowes and purchase 25 miles of extension cords. You wouldn't mind if we drew a little juice from one of your outlets?

Neat how Irene cut the tree in manageable little pieces for you.

(Glad it missed the house. Hope you're not in any imminent flooding danger.)

Yes, it was all very accommodating. I did Irene the British way, a large glass of gin and tonic, silk smoking jacket and a pipeful of Old Badger's Wet Arse Traditional. There is no better way to enjoy a natural disaster

If you can take it with a dose of humor, pardon me, humour, all must be well.

Nah, it wasn't Irene. There are some very active beavers in the area.

Ditto here ///M. Some of my family members out there were reporting sideways rain.

At least here in Ohio, nothing ever happens -- perhaps this is our calamity...

USPS Fail:

On 8/27, the USPS website reports your package is out for delivery. 'Course it never arrived. Asked the mail carrier if he was SURE he didn't have anything for me. He checked and had nothing. His reply to my comment that the package was out for delivery: "Maybe Monday!"

Later that day, the USPS website reports a delivery attempt has been made and notice left. Double checked the mail box and door; no notice. Wonderful!

Then today, the package magically does arrive in the mail, making me wonder who knows more about the whereabouts: the fancy website or the mail guy! I'm curious what the USPS website will update to later today.

Only a government grant can keep these guys in business! How can you provide a tracking number with a parcel and when the customer inquires where it is, the reply is... "Uhmm...well, it looks like we tried to deliver it, I am not sure." :Facepalm:

FedEx was not much better. Sent my ECU (on the Z4) to Active Autowerkes to be reflashed. I get notice they sent it back by FedEx overnight. FedEx tracking (the next day) says they delivered it to my house and someone signed for it. Only problem was I wasn't home and I certainly didn't sign for any delivery. FedEx says nope you got it, we got somebody's signature right here, it's your problem. Well finally the person they actually deliver it to (a business with a very similar address) realizes it's nothing they ordered and now that they look at it, nobody by my name works there, and wait, that's not even the right address. They contact FedEx who then finally contacts me and says I need to go pick up my package at the wrong address if I want it that day. Otherwise, since it's a Friday, they can't pick it up from the wrong address until Monday, then it has to go back to central distribution on Tuesday, get put on the right truck on Wednesday for delivery. Meanwhile I have a car in my garage that can't go anywhere cuz it's missing it's ECU but they could have cared less. So I take off early and go pick it up myself. I understand mistakes happen but I was very disappointed in the complete lack of concern and willingness to do anything to get the part to me as soon as possible even after it was established that it was completey their screw up.

Interesting. Only time I ever have issues is with the USPS. Only let down I've had with UPS/FedEx is when UPS once routed my package to the wrong distribution center and had it on a delivery truck for a day until they brought it back and had to re-route it to my distribution center. Lost 1 day but at least their tracking accurately reflected that! Ah well...

Having my own USPS issue. Should have known when I walked in and a customer and clerk were in a staring match because no one could explain why she hadn't gotten mail delivered in three weeks. The woman stormed away and the clerk ran into the back, then the guy who was next up went to the booth, the clerk came back and said "I just checked in the back and they still don't know why you're not getting mail." The customer had to say "That was the woman before me".

Anyway, glad I got delivery confirmation while mailing a package so I could become more aggravated.


Mailing a box from PA to California on August 15th. Selected the cheapest shipping option.

Status of your Item: Acceptance - August 15th 12:02 PM
Expected Delivery by: August 22nd

Current status of your item:
Processed through sort Facility in Jersey City, NJ

My local postal office was of the opinion that once a notice is left no second attempt would be made to deliver, but mine did get delivered yesterday anyway. They all try to be helpful but in all reality, they have no clue where your mail is. Which makes the fact that they provide tracking information even more puzzling.
