    Why no BMW M board?

    There's an AMG board so it seems like it would only make sense.

    I'm afraid the AMG forum will be removed soon and the posts/threads moved to the Sports Car Board.
    We want to concentrate on two major brands like Porsche and Ferrari because this is what we (the Rennteam.com discussion team) know best. And we don't want to make a secret of our disappointment of the lack of support we were offered from AMG. They actually refused any and we were only asking for infos and pictures. They seem to prefer 100% Mercedes forums and the official AMG Club forum because there isn't much criticism and people can't make direct comparisons to other cars. Their loss, we're happy we have less work.

    I agree RC, take the AMG down now

    Re: Why no BMW M board?

    down with AMG! brabus is better anyway.

    Re: Why no BMW M board?

    I personally would like to see a BMW M board here. I think that BMW makes a great series of cars here and if someone needs a sedan this is an excellent place to look.

    Stephen, the problem is: we would need a moderator who owns a M BMW of the current model line and at the same time also someone who is pretty knowledgable and/or very passionate about BMW cars. Right now no moderator or editor owns a BMW M car and we hardly have time to get involved with the Porsche and Ferrari forum(s).
    Same applies to the AMG forum: since I sold my E55 AMG, my passion for AMG has cooled down, especially since they never really wanted to support us with press infos/pictures and my personal experience with the AMG Owner's Club didn't help much either.

    Re: Why no BMW M board?

    I agree.

    And I don't think the X-5 3.0 that my wife drives is the sort of credentials RC is looking for.

    So Stephen, why don't you buy a new M5 or M6 and then offer your services as Moderator. This seems like the perfect solution to me.

    Re: Why no BMW M board?

    Hahahaha ... I just knew someone in the peanut gallery would pipe up and say that.

    Just read the Evo article on the M5 and it surely sounds like a fantastic car! Too bad it is so ugly though.

    I don't think a full-sized high performance sedan is the direction I would want to head in right now. I think I'm more likely to go in the opposite direction. But maybe someone here reading this is thinking this way? Of course, Christian is right that the forum would need an enthusiastic moderator. Let's hope one materialises.
