We thank and praise lot of people here but we always for get these guys!

Did you guys ever thought how freindly this forum is? This has created us a good platform where we are able to share our information with ease! I have been member of many forums from different lines and never been this active in any forum....

I give all the credit to the Admins/Moderators in our forum for making us comfortable.....

And i dont know if you guys noticed it or not the main intension of this forum mainly create a platform for poeple while most of the other forums it always monetary !

There are many things we take it for granted and wouldn't know the value until we miss those!.

May be atleast for once we should show our gratitude towards them!

Join me to thank these good fellas! They deserve it! we owe it!

I never saw Admins here intervening any of the threads unnesscarily...

In other forums admins keep on moving threads! sending IM's you cannot do this you cannot do that !...they just try to find a reason to use their power!

This board and specifically the F10 site is a lot more diplomatic than some other forums.

I have been on many forum, this one of the best one out there. The site is very active and everyone is very civil. The site is full of information and the mods are low key. Great forum.

I think this forum is best described as run, moderated and participated in by ADULTS!
Respectful and kund in the tone. Giving and enthusiaatic to say the least.
5 series guys and members on this forum are to say the least
gentleman, hard working and not micro managers and resentful people.
basically we all seem to be very grateful that the universe has given this gift of driving such a wonderful
Car and being healthy!
All the best
love peace and harmony everyones way
Rob

I think its good that the mods here are low key and not heavy handed. I was a member of a Lexus forum that had mod and managers and owner who are very heavy handed. They would team up against the members if one of the mod have a different opinion from a member. We are taking about a civilized debate here, not something that gets out of hand where I think a mod should step in. In some forum, one cannot express any negative opinion against the brand. Here in Bimmerfest, all subjects are open as long as we act like adults, which is the way it should be.

+1. There is a certain MB forum that was like this, tons of useful information. The mods went on a power trip, and the whole thing went downhill. Glad that information is free flowing here.
