Kat, I can definitely appreciate your efforts putting this how-to guide together I think, I think (when used properly) the search function can definitely help at least 60% of the masses. The problem is the search function is very basic at best and only goes after individual keywords. So for instance i want "big wheels", it gives me all topics with the word "big" and all of the words with "wheels" not exactly "big wheels". If some kind of boolean logic can be incorporated it would be awesome - but I don't know the technical limitations of a forum like this.

Problem #2 is that I strongly believe there are people on here that wake up bright and early just to troll the threads looking for opportunities to use any of the search emoticons. I never once was personally offended by the "i just got the snowflake bong" thread - I just roll my eyes and move on. But others find the time to write a smart-ass and all to often dick-ish remark and then scream "search" when they could just say "its the car telling you its cold". It diverts the purpose of the "community" and doesn't encourage new members to post and feel welcomed to the fam.

Cy3,

I appreciate the comment. Yes, the sticky was the result of many, too many, trite questions that could have been answered by a simple seach. My intent was never to make new members uncomfortable, but to simply suggest that new members explore a bit before leaping in. Not sure about the 5er, 6er or 7 subforums, but the 3er forum gets at least 3 hits per week during the fall regarding the infamous snowflake icon.

This is amusing that after 3 months it finally gets notice only because one of our regular members resurrected it.

Mein Auto: 330xi
I have a 2006 330xi. I hate the yellow corners of the headlights. Anyone know of any good websites that have headlights with clear corners, legit sites please. I hate the hood of the car is there a way that I can change it to a 2009 hood?

The door handles of the car keep getting stuck once you open the door, so when you open the door and close it, it doesn't fully close because the handle is stuck so you have to push it in yourself. Anyone know how I can fix that?

Thanks!

I have a tested theory that has proven successful in the past re sticky door handles... have you tried spraying a little WD-40 in the door's latch? It doesn't have to completely soak it, but just enough so that the latch no longer sticks... just a suggestion, but your door issue could be a bit different from what I dealt with.

No worries, I'm glad it fixed the problem. WD-40 is my own personal good luck charm when it comes to doors.

What does this symbol mean???

Hello everyone I'm new here and bought my first ever BMW, it's a 2010 328i xdrive. Unfortunately the manual was not in the car when I got it, but the dealership is sending me one. Last night I noticed a symbol that was lit on the dash it looks like a triangle with like an exclamation point inside it. I hope I'm making sense and someone can tell me what this means. I'm not sure if it was lit the whole time it is quite small so I guess its possible it was on the whole time and I just never noticed it. Any help will be great!!! Thank You Dan

I believe you can download the manual from BMW's web site, under the owners section.

I never understand why so many people get bent out of shape at folks for supposedly not using the search. I mean, if I see a topic that I have no interest in, I dont freakin click on it..... if it has been asked before and I dont want to talk about it again, I go on to the next one and so on. I think that there is always room for questions of any kind. People come and go all the time on this and other forums, and someone might bring up a topic that I want to discuss. It may have been discussed a thousand times before, but not with me and the person posting and I may not know that is had been discussed because I dont do some random search to see if something I have interest in was talked about 5 years ago. So, if we dont want to read something, or we dont want to answer something then we dont have to. Keeping the threads fresh, with fresh perspectives and yes, fresh questions from fresh people is a good thing. When I "get tired of the same $hit posted week in and week out", I go to a different forum. But whatever, to each their own. Happy driving.

Forums are for people to have a dialogue. If I want to search for a topic I will...... If I don't then I will create a new post to ask my question. Don't like it? Don't read or respond to it.
