Yeah, I agree. That is the number one thing that pisses me off is the false advertising. I see it ALL the time here at our dealership.
We know the difference, and even though the average Joe who knows nothing about it is going to know nothing but a true bmw enthusiast is giong to know and ask about it. At least you have the exaust to show that you support them. And that when you get the time and money for the additional upgrades you'll do so when the time is right.
We aren't here to be mean or pick on you or your car, we just want to let you know how we feel about certain topics. And false advertising is one of them.
Yes, you are right everybody has their own opinion, and there are two sides of the story to every situation.
I think it's AWESOME that you are supporting Dinan and their products. IMO, I think you should continue to purchase their products and improve your cars performance, looks, and sounds.
But I also think that a family is more important than your car. All a car is going do is take you from point A to point B. Yeah cars are fun and cool. But you should tend to your families needs before your car, and you are right about how you are watching what you are spending for your families sake rather than your car. If you have money to spare, then great, go purchase your Dinan mods....
I understand your situation, and I'm equally on both sides of the story.
