Haha, welcome man. Don't change over just because everyone else is. Give both forums a chance and make the decision yourself. So far everyone here has and they all have found this is a better place. The community is more friendly and welcoming, the functionality of the site is more advanced, the interface is cleaner, and our moderation team is dedicated. We actually care about the site and work to keep it up to date (for example on werkz, they STILL haven't changed the header banner from "BMW-Forums", and the homepage hasn't been updated in years).
This site is built around the community and is a fresh start, fixing the flaws of other forums before they start here.
So with that said, welcome to United.
