Why would people give a 1,2,3 vote to a clean car?

My car may not be a 10 (I think it is but it's mine) but it certainly is not less than a 5 under any circumstances. So why would there be several people that have given it under 4?

e30cabrio's Ride Vote Statistics
R Votes
1 2

2 1

3 1

4 0

5 1

6 3

7 6

8 4

9 1

10 6


GRRRRRRRRRr.

I would guess it is personal preference. Maybe some people don't care for your car. Some people gave me 1,2,3s. I don't think it is ever that low, but you can't change the votes personally. So, stop the bitching, your car is ranked top 10, obvously a lot of people must like it!

Heh, even with the lower numbers your still in the top 10, which is impressive considering the number of cars in the rankings.

I have 6 votes under 5, but the system tries its best to balance it out. If the majority of your votes are high, it weighs those less than if the majority of your votes are low, via an internal logarithmic algorithm.

Congrats on having a nice car, but it's probably best to just not worry about the lower numbers.

I am such a dick. When I see attention whoring threads like this... Well, needless to say, I just gave you a one.

Jesus pal, you are #8 and there are a lot of cars I think should be higher in the rankings than yours.

Wow is this R3V? I was not bitching nor asking for attention I was asking the question I asked. billycuth & Storamin perhaps you do not think it is a 10 but do you honestly think it is a 1?

A 1 would be a total piece of junk ready for the junkyard.

Thanks

btw billycuth why not set up YOUR car? Thanks for admitting you are a dick.

I have two 1's and one 3 as well It doesnt really matter what your rank is man, if you love your car then thats all that really matters. Like the others said, being in the top 10 with a car that is 16 years old is pretty impressive.

I agree with Envy. If you could have seen the flamings I got for my e30, (when I had her), you would realize that as long as you love it, it doesn't matter what other people think.

What a lame ass thread.... What do you want a fvckin group hug??

Some people are gonna be haters no matter what. Nothing can be done about it.

But this is just a shameless attempt to get noticed.

I haven't had time to set my car up because my wheels got destroyed and I know my car is not where I would like it to be. If you want to see the back-end, check my DIY on exhaust systems...

Plus, I couldn't give two shits what anyone thinks about it. It's my baby and I love her. Don't care to have it rated.

Then what were you doing if you werent bitching? I think you were bitching.

OK, please, this is a TECH section, can we please not have an argument about how people rate others' cars? Besides...
