Great looking car. Black and red go so well together. Mind you black isn’t the easiest to keep clean. Enjoy it. :thumbsup:

Seems to be more screeching coming from here than a G29s brakes :poke:

I’m a relatively new member, I post a bit, but threads like this put me off. I’m just being honest. I think we all know by now that the OP doesn’t like the G29 and he’s told us this many, many times.

From the outside looking in, why would a G29 owner want to contribute to a forum that’s dominated by a few members who love to tell people how much they don’t like the car that they drive?

I personally do not see the value in threads like this. Forums don’t grow and survive just based on noise. There needs to be meaningful discussion.

This thread could have been ‘has anyone noticed that the seat colours have changed?’, but instead the OP is banging the same old drum to justify why he didn’t end up buying a car that many of us love and enjoy.

How about we change the tone here and be a bit more positive and inclusive? Or should I come onto the E89 forum and say how lucky I am that I no longer own one? :o
Would you just read your post again and tell me exactly where on this whole thread I have a banged a drum justifying about a car I didn’t buy...? Which in fact I HAVE bought and also could you point out in this whole thread where just once I have said I’m not buying one....In your own time....let’s get the basics right first then we can move on....

Also could you find the post where I’ve asked you to leave the forum...? If you bother to read what is written ever, I said if you don’t like being on this thread leave it and go elsewhere ON the forum....does that sound like I’m asking you leave the forum...? And why exactly would I have authority never mind the desire to ask you to leave the forum...?

What you’ve done by resurrecting this thread is make a quite unnecessary and completely factually incorrect post as you quite clearly have not read the opening post I made at the start, jumped in with zero knowledge and are now desperately trying to put some sort of spin on it making me out to be negative about seat colour, the car, and anything else your head can come up with because you’re WRONG and haven’t the decency, backbone, maturity to admit it.

The opening post was about me changing my mind from Cognac to red and my reasons for that, I see nothing more than general discussion in that which what a forum is all about no..? Why you, and Tomscott agreeing to your incorrect post have decided to say im against the G29 is beyond me....I have one remember.....as I said please find where I have done on this whole thread. By the nature of your post having an completely incorrect pop at me I responded in the same manner.....sorry you don’t like that but if you dish it out you have to expect it back.

I’ll await your evidence of me banging my drum about not liking the G29 on this thread that you’ve accused me of.

Best thing is get this stupidity locked and done with, I’m not wasting my life with such ridiculous accusations that are clearly false and too stupid for words, i really do have better things to do and worry about.
