I did look. And it looked fine. There was a clean cut on the bottom lip that I missed. And the only reason I noticed it now is because I was driving on the highway doing 70+ and the wind caused the lip to shift out of place.

I'm not a complete retard.

My father said that either way it wouldn't have really mattered. If I had seen it there in the lot then the whole "towed at owners expense" covers them..... Talked to insurance and they were like yeah if they deny it we can't prove anything.

At least the crack is so perfect that I can clip everything back and it's practically unnoticeable....il have to reinforce it though for highway driving. I'll post a pic of it back together so you can see it was pretty hard to see in the first place.....

Ugh probably wouldn't have happened if my car was stock 4x4 xi height. then again.... It probably would have. They clearly slammed it back down or abused it somehow. Godamn. **** me

I'm going to talk to the apt manager and let him know how sleazy his towing company is so maybe they change companies. Who knows, worth a shot

Some dirtbag towed my girlfriends' camry two days ago and he tore up the whole front of her car, from the hood to the bumper. In attempt to cover his ass he later said that the car looked like it had been in a crash, thats why he towed it away. I ended up theratening the whole office and now they are paying for it.
Your car is really low, raise it a bit.

I have 1st hand experience with both the Dorman regulators and the so called "generic brakes" which I offered info on. That IS contributing.. hello? If you know anything about E46s, you know that the factory regulators have inherent problems so it should not be a matter of degradation to try another brand, which I have done and will be offering periodic updates as to their performance. If you prefer the OEM problematic ones at three times the price for elitist sake, good for you but more enlightened people such as myself will look for better options and report our findings which according to your brilliant logic, is somehow not contributing lol.

Also as I mentioned before, which you continue to ignore: I do not benefit in ANY way if anyone uses said, above mentioned products. My motives are completely altruistic. I have benefited greatly from this group and will continue to offer help in any way I can.
Wtf kind of moron are you? Why don't you peruse the first ever thread in the xi forum and pay special note to the fifth post.

http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...+our+own+forum

You're just a parts desk guy. That says everything I need to know about you. I've never met an intelligent one that was worth a damn. Actually, two of the last three BMW parts departments I've visited have offered me a job on the spot! That was before I told them I use to work for BMW. And no I didn't mention that BMW flew me to Munich in 2003 to tour the e46 assembly line. I also didn't mention my graduate degree from the fourth rated college in the world- probably because all my friends did theirs at #1 and #3.

I didn't see Pike's Peak Commmunity College or UTI ranked on there, chilone. You're just a punk behind a parts counter with shite opinions. You're not in my league.

For an alleged college grad you sure are an illogical dumbass!! You make totally unfounded and incorrect assumptions about someone you know almost nothing about. You don't know me and to suggest that you know anything about me other than the superficial details I've divulged is asinine, unintelligent, arrogant and supremely childish. I'm just waiting for you to tell me that your dad can beat up my dad.. ya cretin!! Does attempting to belittle people on the internet make you feel good? Is that how you get meaning in your life? I'm not concerned about your education or your financial status even though you seem to want to use such shallow criteria to tell yourself that you are in some way better than me (even though you haven't the vaguest concept of either in my case) and the others you insult. The question is, are you a nice person? By all I've seen that would be a resounding NO! I wouldn't cross the street to piss on you if you were on fire. You should be ashamed of yourself strutting around here like you're the be all, end all. You're not special and it's obvious.

Came across this thread on my phone, don't frequent the XI forums. Don't plan on returning after reading this.

Quite literally the most pretentious douchebaggery I've seen on e46Fanatics. Good for you and your degree. Your degree is better than mine, and likely most of the users on this forum. Hopefully you get your **** together and realize no one will care what your fancy piece of paper says if you're an asshole.

Honestly, you strike me as a 24 year old graduate who's been riding daddy's dime and bought him self a baseline BMW. You also seem like the kind of guy to put on an M3 badge and claim to have a rare AWD M3.

As a note, those of us who are well off don't need to brag about it. Whether you are, or aren't, shut your mouth and have some class and have a little respect.

I personally don't want you to feel comfortable posting here. There was no xi forum for nine years and it's doesn't take long to find an old thread where rwd-ers give bad advice to xi guys, wasting their time and money. We don't post in the 'vert or m3 forum, so don't post here.
Try adding something worthwhile or you're just mucking up a perfectly good resource.

Oh you mad!

And for the record, I'm 24 years old. Graduated college at the top of my class. Got a kick ass job. Bought my M3. All while living on my own, paying my own way (and often helping friends along the way).

My parents are well off, but they got that way by working hard (Dad's a 20 year disabled army vet). Only money I got for college was 100 bucks for groceries when I left home.

My path taught me to work hard, look a man in the eyes with integrity and never put yourself above another person. I'm in everyone's league.

Hey guys don't let one douchebag scare you away. It will be a pretty lonely forum if that happens. I find the ones who think they know it all and are better than everybody else really know very little. Be glad he is not a doctor and could really do some damage. I have been on this Earth a very long time and have seen people like him before. I hate to say he is from the same state as me. Just keep poking at him and enjoy the ride. If nobody asks questions this will no longer be a forum to help others. He thinks he already has all of the answers in life and wants to be here alone. Keep enjoying life and ignore the distractions. It's a short ride!!

Well said. I do enjoy poking people

OP, sorry for the thread jack. You clearly got a raw deal...what was the original cause of the tow? Did the landlord ever tell you?
