By the way, I don't know if any of you have noticed yet, but the red E36 with the ///M badge in the grill has non-///M mirrors (folded back, so it's hard to see).

Yes, he has an ///M booger on a non-///M car. Anyone want to place bets on how many Dinan parts are actually on the black E36? I doubt he has more than the Dinan badge and maybe a strut tower brace.

Stock badge is where it was placed at the factory, I followed the badge placement instructions that came with the Dinan badge (once you reach stage 4 you get a badge with placement measurements smart ass) cobbled together ehh, haters are plentiful on here I now see, I've uploaded more pics for you to hate on, I'm sure you'll have some bs to say about them too, pretty ridiculous the depths this posting has gone to.

Actually, you are wrong, and apparently don't know much about E36s. The M3 badge on your trunk is too far to the left by an inch or two. You may have bought the car that way, but it isn't how it came from the factory. Both emblems are a bit too high, and the Dinan badge is too far to the left. But whatevs.

If it was a "wholly sh!!t I got a 5 over ticket" rant, you wouldn't of mentioned that you had 300hp N/A...

Just saying bro, maybe you tried to get some attention on here and its working!!!

Yep, you put it on too high, and the letters are all crunched together and slightly crooked in relation to one another. You may have had the instructions, but you didn't execute them very well. The D and I are practically touching each other, and everything else looks cattywampus.

We see stock S50s all the time, Randy. Also, he says his car is a "full Dinan". But wouldn't a full Dinan have a SC, and thus more than the amount of power he specified?

'0' to 'temmoc' faster than his dinan //M...

whatever, dude...really, relax.

this is teh interwebz, and in case you haven't noticed, people like to stretch the truth. just a little, though...

you started this thread getting all at the officer who wrote you a ticket. it doesn't matter if it was 5 over or 100 over, you were exceeding the speed limit. period amen.

your story about the scenario is suspect to say the least, and, in all honesty, i do not really think that anyone gives a hoot. apparently you have been able to have 'daddy' take care of this little infraction. on a saturday, no less

this, along with the fact that you are a noob, bragged about how much $$ you made/make, have racebikes, and all of the go fast goodies for your now aged bmw chassis all screamm 'look at me i need attention'.

that, my fellow bmw driver, is blood in the water to this here shark infested forum. living in texas i'd have thought that you, of all people, would understand.

of course now i am beginning to think that you are a cali transplant given your whinning.

also, unless you have purchased said bmw new and done everything to if, there is always suspicion as to the claims made about said vehicle. there is a bunch of experience and knowlege on this forum, which is why we gather here. (busting balls is just for fun, unless you're canadian...) when one makes claims about thus and such, be prepared to be able to back it up with validation.

otherwise, i think i shall name thee 'temmoc 2.0'....


have a pleasant day.

Hell I have more invested in my 929 CBR than that rookie PO makes in a year not to mention my brand new R1 race bike, better get those facts straight before you come at me with some BS, my annual income surpasses yours for sure and you know what I do while you sit in your cubical? ...I live life to the fullest and don't have to worry about lil fleas like you
This is too much. I could leave it alone....or I could pick it apart. I'll go with picking it apart.

A BA in EE and CS? Is that even accredited? Who wants a BA in engineering?

Developing patents.....any R&D engineering group had better be developing patent-worthy designs for their company or they'd be fired.

I think the rest of your post speaks for yourself, and the speaking it does tells me you're full of sh!t and making things up as you go along. I'll just sit back and enjoy the train wreck.

His profile says it's a full Dinan 5. I don't see any 5's around here. And you can get the Dinan badge with some springs, an intake, exhaust, and pedals.

As a matter of fact I am going to reply to this one then leave it alone, I have two bachelor of science degrees that I studied for and graduated in 1999 from LSU, EE and Computer Science, I developed, OrCad-ed and created the complete PCB of what's called a spider comm board that's used for different modalities in Health Imaging which is cross compatible with almost every image server in PACS as its really just a multi comm PCB that fits in a PCI slot, I did this work and development with flextronics, I own all rights and patents associated with this piece of hardware that will be in use for decades to come... I sold off rights and still own the patents, so there you have it, I have to explain my income for you, but I'll leave it at that. Everything else is opinionated bs that comes after this... I'm done

I'll send picks of my engine bay but that's it, you can try to pick apart everything I say on here but I have no reason to lie,I just came on here to get advice about a Dinan short shifter that I recently had installed and then next day got a 5 over ticket and thought I would share, didn't know that there are so many haters or I wouldn't have even started a bs blog about 5 over
