Haha, no need to step down. If you have a nice car, people will rate you high and you will move up.
And as for the ones, the system is developed in a way where it weighs out "far out" votes like that using a logarithmic algorithm. Basically if you have mostly 8's through 10's and you get a few 1's or 2's, it will weigh the 8s, 9s, and 10s heavier than the 1's and 2's. This is apparent by you getting a couple of low ratings, but still remaining number 3 in the rankings.
actually duduskey, its really bias sometimes, some people have m3s, and just b/c they arent active, they get a low rating, and this one dude has a sweeeet s/c 7, and i dont know what his rating is, but it should def. be in the top 10
komodo, what is the formula for the rating system? i remember it was in a thread and someone suggested it and you used it, but i dont remember the name of the thread or anything, can you tell me the formula?

The ones are back again. Two ones and two twos on mine in a fairly short span.
And I think that I found a picture of Delmarco as someones car entry.
I've had my time in the top 5 and was wondering how to remove my car from the list so someone else can move up?
Yea, it pretty sad and total bulls#!t. Some lame-a$$’s have given a “02” M3 two ones, two twos, and zero tens for a total of 6.43 and a 54 ranking. This rating system is a joke and some don't know a fine ride if it ran over them. It's just a popularity contest between members that post here everyday. I go on leave for a few months and come back to this. What a shame. I should remove my car from the list as well, because we can all see many here don’t vote on the car’s own merits….
I have always voted fair and accurately and don’t skew a vote to gain a higher ranking. Pretty sad an E46 M3 gets disrespected in such a manor. I am not saying the car is best-of-board or even should be top 10, but 54 out of 140 is total BS and those who think it is are not true BMW enthusiasts….
