Your talking with friends, and can relate almost anything to "something someone on the forum said"

consider the forum you're main source for porn (nws members forum)
That was really good!!! Props my friend!!!

I am guilty of just about everything listed....

-You get pissed when you look at the ugly a$$ Base Stickers that are on your windshield because it's "regulation", so you have the Military Police stick it on the windshield as low as possible

-When you're deployed to Iraq and surf this site more than you e-mail back home

-You show up to work early in Iraq so you can hurry up and do all the work that needs to be done for the day, just to spend the rest of the 7+ hours on E46Fanatics

-All of your hard earned combat pay, base pay, housing pay, food pay, uniform pay, separation pay, per diem pay, and re-enlistment bonus has already been allocated for "Mods" (to include a TS2, 6spd, and LSD).

- You extend in Iraq to save up more money to support the modding addiction

- You ask your buddy the "Network Administrator" to allow your computer to bypass the proxy so you can surf E46Fanatics for 7+ hours a day, while in a combat zone.

Oh by the way...... don't you hate it when you park your car in the middle of nowhere, like over in the parking area where there are absolutely no cars for a square block......then when you return from Starbucks with the cofffee you have NO intention of actually putting IN your E46, there are like 2 cars parked right next to you.
YES! WTF, this happens to me all the time! Like I know you would have rather parked alot closer, but for some reason you have to park right next to me.

she hates my car, she says that I pay more attention to the car then I do to her! That may be a little bit true. Also my mom drives an E46 !

I was talking to a sales person about a 135i and asked what the size difference is compared to the E46, and he assumed a was talking about a Benz, I chose not to correct him, I felt too bad, I just rephrased the question.

hahaha

Now this begs the question, how did he compare the 1 series in size to the [illustrious] "MB E46"?

Don't tell this to my fiancÚ. Though she is only 21, she appreciates the ZHP and wants one of her own. If she saw you trying to steal my bumpers she would pull out the pepper spray or the police baton in the glove box Plus she knows how to drive a stick...

When you curse any damn Japanese "fast car" and you don't need to race it, you have enough confidence in yourself, to let it go...after 10 minutes of RAGE !


(damn I need clears, damn you E46fanatics.com !!) hahahaha

My Ride: S54 325i
I think I'm a fanatic. I had $52 with me to go to Carlisle Style and Performance show and I HAD to enter my car so I could park with the other BMWs. It was $50 to enter the showfield so I went without eating or drinking for over 6 hours just so I could be with my car.

My alternative was pay $30 and park outside the showfield, wasnt gonna happen.

Trade E92 for an E46

When you trade in your E46 coupe for a new E92 328i coupe. Only to sell the 328i a year later and buy an 05 330ci 6 speed ZHP.
