What you do when you first log on to the forum

Ok guys...
Since joining the forum last year I’ve found that i spent a comically large amount of time on here.....
and the time spent goes up every week...

After many thousands of dollars and many hours of cursing the forum on the company dime.... i know most of you do the same thing

I figured I’d try and see what section of the forum you have book marked... or visit/check out first...

For me its the

Private Sellers - For Sale / Trade / Wanted
then the general posts

what is yours....


EDIT.... i know SPONSERS is on twice..... sorry

Reedit.. i think the mod fixed this ^ thanks

Technical section, mostly the DIY parts and Engine/Transmission, etc. More often than others I check the Wash/Wax/Detail section too.

Probably... (i should preface that with "i didn't know that" )

as the poll stands now it looks like my hypothesis of "everyone's doing it" as a justification for buy stuff off the for sale section... not really working out for me

OP, I think it depends on where you are with the car. For me since I'm new and don't have the M yet I tend to look at new posts and run searches on things I'm not familiar with.

i think it depends on your status as a M3 owner.

Before I bought my M3, the first place I went was Pricing Forum
After I bought it, it was Maintenance Forum for a while
Then after a few months, I go primairly to General or Pictures or Regional to check up on how awesome my M3 measures up to others and want to meet others like myself.

For my first year or so on the site I'd head straight to the Private Sellers - Cars For sale area, but now that I've got one lined up (bank sent paperwork to seller a few days ago) I've been heading to the General area to learn some things about my new ride.

Love this forum!!

General forum
Then pricing, mid atlantic, engine, wheels, cosmetic, audio, each for sale section except suspension.
Then over to e90post for the same thing
Then home page
If I'm really bored I go to the 1 series forum, or even the X3 forum ( my wife has the new x3)

Believe it or not
My wife is sure I'm seeing someone on the forum

I am not allowed to go get on the forum at home... pisses off my real and imaginary GF...

i think, for me, the final straw was when she asked me why i can't surf for porn like normal guys... that comment forced me to take a real hard look at myself
