As I said before if I was washing my relatively new car and anything falls off without any particular event precipitating it I would certainly be curious to find out whether it was a common problem myself regardless of cost. I did not find a thread on this in a search which would leave you with asking the question. Thats what forums are good for and this section subtitled "Come discuss everything" would seem the place to do it.
Some people deem certain questions 'beneath' them and for some reason it annoys and/or baffles them that anyone would ask such a question. It's funny because (1) not everyone is born a genius and I'd love to see some of those people's first questions before they became 'experts', and (2) no one is compelling them to read the thread nor especially comment in any such thread. In fact by commenting it bumps it up to the top and makes it more visible. Then you have the people that like to throw emotional temper-tantrums when something on an internet forum doesn't go their way...always an entertaining!

This seems to be a reaction to the number of threads like this one, rather than this one in particular. I probably shouldn't have started name calling, but that just shows my immaturity. My immaturity doesn't detract from the overall sentiment that this forum has become very trivial. Very trivial.

Because the car is generally awesome and has turned out thus far to be more reliable than a Civic, there is not that much to talk about. That leaves the following topics:

1) 1200 mile service, how much should I agonize and research it before just taking it to the dealer?
2) My bad experience at the dealership today, they washed my car and I did not want them to
3) My bad experience at the dealership today, they gave me a loaner and I do not like it
4) My bad experience at the dealership today, I am convinced that every person that works there wants to street race in my car
5) My bad experience at the dealership today, they did not treat me better than a 328 owner
6) I am contemplating crashing my car into a concrete barrier because it did not come with a dipstick and BMW will not listen to me, even though I call them everyday
7) Polls about what timezone you drive your M3 in and/or what brand of jeans you wear whilst driving
8) Help, my wheel badge fell off
9) How I have individualized my car and expressed myself by changing my chrome grille to black
LMAO!!! Good summary...

We appreciate your ability to laugh at us instead of becoming defensive.

Why isn't this a legitimate subject? Guy owns an M3, something happened, and he's wondering if he should use a different product...?

The nail in the tire was awesome. I was going to reply to it, but just left it alone.

Wasn't hard to post up where to get replacements - some members would rather spend 10 minutes thinking up a facetious comment to show everyone how knowledgeable and above such 'trivia' they are.

To answer your question OP - i have never had a sticker come off my M3 however i did have one come off my old 335i

I was happy to help you out my friend after all that should be the purpose of this forum to help one another out. IMHO

... not to trow stones and insults at each other ... what say you?
