I was pulled over!

I was breaking the law, but for god's sake- that's not the point!

I too ALWAYS find these types of threads amusing.
Always:
1.At all times; on all occasions.
2.Throughout a long period of the past.

Repetition and consistency are implicit in the meaning of the word ALWAYS.

I USED TO find these threads amusing ... implies that they no longer occur.

I WILL find these threads amusing ... implies they have yet to occur.

Nothing wrong with my comprehension.

These window tint threads appear all of the time (..and have appeared in various capacities for YEARS; it's completely redundant). The term "always" is more than appropriate.

I USED TO find these threads amusing... implies that they still occur but I no longer find them amusing.

You really been on here since Dec 1969? Jesus! A 20 year vet would still be a noob compared to that. You only posted 1,742 comments in all that time? Wassup dude? You got nothing to say? And look at me. 848 in 6 months. A regular blabber mouth.

When do you actually stop being a noob on here? Is it purely a matter of elapsed time or is it based on some kind of comments per week multiple? If its the latter you need to shape up.

I've been here 10 years. All of us old schooler's who were here since the dawn of E46Fanatics have 1969 join dates (..think "grandfathered in"). I have 1,742 non-Off Topic forum comments, but I probably have triple that in OT comments. OT comments do not count towards your number (..if you haven't noticed smart guy). You are no longer a n00b when you begin to understand the dynamic of this forum...........which you have yet to achieve. Post count is largely irrelevant.

Yo OP,
Look, many cops suck. Accept it, and don't do anything that will attract attention or make you stand out (except for a little speeding!), & be nice to them, especially if you aren't a clean looking white guy like in the pic below. But even then....
I got pulled a couple of years ago on the TSP by a statie. He probably thought I was speeding but didn't get me on radar because I was blocked by another car. So he gave me a ticket for no license plate lights. I asked if I could look, the lights were on, & he said, "you must have just done that...." I went to court & he didn't show.
I also got pulled once for tinted windows & I have only the stock BMW tint. After he eyeballed my car thoroughly in & out, he let me go.
Don't have beer bottles rattling around in your car, don't let it smell like bacalola, and if you have a backpack or such inside the car, have it zipped or closed, otherwise they can check it.
In NYC Bloomberg has put out a directive that all cops have to appear for ticket hearings, so you won't find many cops not showing.
Upstate, if you get a speeding ticket, go to court, even by yourself. If they find you guilty of speeding under some circumstances (state road? by a statie? I forget), the fine money goes to the state. If the town judge reduces your charge to a parking ticket or whatever (like with me this fall), the money you pay might be similar, but the money will go to the town & you will get no points on your license.

So post count isn't actually post count. Its a rather pointless statistic then wouldn't you say? Why do I get the sense that the words dynamic and bulls**t are interchangeable in that last statement?

It's not a true post count no. It's also not a number that can be used to determine the amount of quality contributions any particular member adds to the forum.

Thanks Mango,
Little Bear goes canoeing with us all the time.
He also likes to ride in BMWs, especially with his BFF Carlos Santana.

Don't be a sore loser. You got to pay to play.

I've gotten 2 tint tickets before for the last 14 years. No problemo. I knew the cost going in and I'm keeping that bad boy up.
