    R3v has definitely slowed. But it is still one of my favorite places.

      R3V slowed down since that P...O was introduced. Thank God that is now gone!

      It seems to pick up slightly, and is definitely my favourite too!!^

      Funny, it is the busiest forum for the spammers though. B@s!@rds.

        Sometimes I worry about this place turning into a ghost town.

        It's really hard for me to understand why FB would be a threat to the forum, because its a terrible platform to keep anything organized, or archive loads of info.

          I think forums will be around for a long time due to the technical information saved there. Facebook is killing off the Off Topic sections on most forums, which I think is what keeps most long time forum members on forums even after they sell their cars and move on. Facebook is good for the BS talk, you get instant notifications on a platform most people between 10-35 spend a lot of time on anyway.

          The BFC OT section kept me around for years when I sold my BMWs and moved into my new F150 and old beat-to-shit 911. I used Rennlist to get technical info, but posted my 911 horror stories on BFC with the people I'd grown to know over the years.

            OT section is definitely what keeps a forum together. I was BFC for years before I got my E30 (signed up in 2005, got my E30 in 2011), and posted pretty much exclusively in OT. Also, the OT section is generally how you get to know the other members. Another forum I'm on has/had a pretty weak and strictly regulated "OT" section, and that forum has always felt pretty sterile to me. Very much a tech only forum. That forum is very slow now, and the OT section is just dead.

              Kids want a quick answer without researching for 10's or 100's of hours. FB gives them an answer, and attention at the same time. It's win win for them. They get to both boast they want to do a mod, and tell the world they are going to do it.

              I can tell you that 90% of the answers on a tech-related FB post are wrong. It would be almost comical if I didn't hate misinformation so much. But oh well. Weld your diff, chop your springs, do a "muffler delete"and cheese grate your air box. It's all good - and documented for you to cringe at later in life.

                R3V isnt as bad as some forums. I use both tapatalk and a regular browser for all my r3v activities.

                as long as we dont die like e30tech there will be activity. some of us are "too old" for facebook.

                      Wise words.

                      With the exception of the 911, I've never enjoyed selling a car(s) more than I have when getting rid of my e36s. Only the 98 M3 did I vaguely regret, the rest were all turds that I couldn't wait to pass on to some other unlucky shmuck that thought they could live with it.

                        They're not that bad. If you replace interior clips and use a bit of glue on the door cards, what's the issue with them?

                          Cooling system is made of toilet paper, everything creaks/rattles, and window regulators were my favorite e36 issues.

                              I'm not trying to be an ass, but it's kinda of a caveat emptor thing when you buy an e36.

                                Yes they do.

                                My last e30 was t-boned 3 years ago and still the only forum I frequent is R3V. Not many forums are as good as here.
