Default New M3 E46 owner

Hello all,

I would like to say a big hello to all fellow M3 owners

Purchased my M3 last month and could not stop smiling since then. Titan silver, manual coupe.

I am sure I will have many questions to ask in the coming days/months/years,
you all sound very nice and knowledgeable

‘Some’

The only people not having problems with it are those paying $399(?) for the ‘plus 500’ service as that’s what they’ve decided they want to charge to allow you to embed your images in a forum.

Try imgur. It’s (currently) free and others are moving their pictures there.

Surely there must be an easier way to upload images? Sorry but has this been always the case on this forum?

I'm not an expert with PC's so may have problems

Oh well, will need to attend a meet up to show off my ride........on that note when is the next gathering/event? near London?

It does seem to be rolling out slowly. My pictures were also still appearing, but vast amounts have been replaced with the ransom graphic and as this is their new policy, I don't expect you'll have long...

Welcome to the forum!

I host my photos on Facebook then copy the 'Image address' by right clicking on the picture I want to share then pasting the URL using the 'Insert picture' button. It will look something like the below until you hit 'Submit reply' then your picture will appear

[IMG]<<insert URL here>>[/IMG]

Hope that helps

I must admit that I am falling in love with the car already and only have owned it for 1.5 months, not being biased but the silver does really show off those wide arches. Just looking at her gives me pleasure

Thank you all for your kind welcome
