    Nope, that was just directed at our usual moderator. It's something he said in one of his YT videos. Also, in a perverse way, dislikes may help promote a YT video to some degree.

    Criticism still drives people away, just like mint84325e, who just decided to quit the forum after I voiced an opinion he did not like. Some people, no matter how old, just cannot take what they percieve as criticism for whatever reason. Although it does seem more likely that I was correct since he left the way he did.

    WHATS UP YOU TUBEEEEE!?!?!? - "Closes browser tab"...

    Many things in life have changed, lust for the e30 remains the same.

    Some of us implore others to click that dislike button but to tell them why they didn't like it.

    There will always be room for forums like this. Fb/reddit suck. The major media/publication companies always put out underwhelming content. I have been learning blacksmithing lately and I have had to swim through a sea of mediocre guide until I found one that actually answered my question about anvils. These little guys always do good work but they are harder to find.

    Facebook is pleb filtering for us, we get fewer dumbasses on forums now because most of them stick to that irredeemably garbage site.

    After the “This is Porn” thread got deleted I lost all hope in R3v (Jk). But I do miss the shit talking on the dorks (for example, the kid that “poped” his tire and crashed into that residential home, then someone found the address & delivered pizza, LOL).

    But in all seriousness, after starting my career in 2016 the e30 lifestyle faded quite a bit for me. Now that I recently obtained an e30 M3 my passion has come back quite a bit. I will eventually start a thread for both of my e30s.

    I do. Frequently. And hopefully I'll be starting another build thread soon. But it won't be a truck build thread, unfortunately. ;-)

    I've only been around for a little over 5 years, but thanks to this forum I've learned a ton, I've met some great people, and I've made some great friends.

    makes sense to me. nobody else believes me when i say that, though.

    the s50 has a flatter torque curve and an overdrive transmission with longer gears. the s14 is always in the powerband with the CR box (and 3.23 M-Coupe differential) and pulls HARD all the way to 8k. i think the m3 would be faster off the line til probably about 70 or so. the s50 car definitely feels quicker from about 70 onward, where the longer gears really come into play.

    time flies - it's even weirder when your clients have kids and then they start coming to you for service (i'm sure you can relate to that, haha)

    good lord, man, you're old!!!!! lolol. it's hard to believe how much of my life i've spent on here. i've been reading the posts here since 2009, but was a timid fella and never felt the urge to register until 2010 (didn't have anything really to add). this site, and mye28, really gave me concrete thick skin. it was a good way to be introduced to the real world, i think.

    it's funny, i went and drove my red s50 car this morning. it feels slow to me anymore. my e30m3 with a CR (dogleg) box feels faster - hard to say if it really is, but the gearing and that rev happy little engine makes all the difference in the world. time is a funny thing. hahahah

    Simon, I swear I sat down yesterday evening to finally start my cluster fuck of cars thread and I couldn't even load r3v

    I will try again tonight after work...

    I agree with us being on top of our own threads would help new people stick around.

    Truth.
    Im wrapping up the exhaust on the S52 swap. I'll actually pull everything together and start a thread. If it reads like a 5 yr olds thoughts I told you so.
