Hard to judge someones character behind a keyboard as some statements may come off differently depending on the matter (he may just be a very blunt person). You can have an opinion, but at the same time you have to respect others. Just because we are on the internet doesn't mean you can say whatever comes to mind. Forums have rules and lets just say he is not unfamiliar with the ban feature...
I have to say that after hearing his cultural background from another forum member, his "bluntness"/lack of tact made sense to me (I have a lot off people with that cultural background at my work). That's just how they are and I don't take it personally.

Agreed; at the end of the day, nobody is above the rules. It's possible to prove any point while maintaining respect. What unsettles me is the hunch that's not the real reason he's banned.

Nah, another one. Starts with a V.

The forum member does have a store of good information about the platform, but it's severely over shadowed with his consistent berating of that vendor and their customers who post here (good or bad).

I mean the forum member clearly never purchased the vendors products but he took it upon himself to be some kind of knight behind a shining keyboard whenever someone mentioned/slighted the vendor in any length. It was really weird how invested he was in transactions that had nothing to do with him, and that seemed to be resolved in a typical manner by any regular business.

Bimmerpost will survive without his weird angry posts lol.

Fair enough. I think we all can see there is a deeper issue here, though, regarding this topic.

I do wonder if @IK6SPEED will be un-bannned (like me) after a certain time frame?

I hope so considering he seemed to be pretty knowledgeable on the F30 platform.

I have noticed him "chirping" other members about meaningless shit which I dont agree with but after reading more about the situation, I doubt he meant any real harm.

With all due respect, if you do not know what you are talking about dont throw us under the bus.
We never asked for anyone to be banned.
We dont even ask for any thread against us to be closed.

FWIW... I have had (two) excellent dealings with XPH. Would recommend and do business with again.

I never purchased a pack of cigarettes or needed a Surgeon General Warning to see the number of people complaining about their quality either.

If it was up to you, Ralph Nader would have never existed and the Ford Corsair and Pinto would still be on the road because Ford complained.

I’ll take the 2500+ rep points from grateful members as opposed to the few outliers who post incorrect info and cannot even count 15 rows of fins on a FMIC correctly.

Actually had nothing to do with xph.

Someone asked about the other Product Brand in the F80 Engine thread.

I simply posted 4 words, “search the F30 forum”. The post was deleted and I was banned at the same time as the deletion. No comment as to the quality of product, just where to find more posts about his question.

https://f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1574198

I apparently remain banned in the entire F80 Engine thread as a result.

https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh...5#post24356765

And with that said, I have great respect for Mike @ Extreme

Why?

Because when problems happen, he does not duck them, making excuses, spins it and pulls excuses.....but simply takes responsibility. Nor does he ask Moderators to ban user and delete posts....unlike some others.

As a result, I have made 2 purchases from him in the last 2 weeks. And told him that was reason I was purchasing from him.

He thanked me and stated he was glad that someone noticed that.

So for those who haven’t made the connection, think about it.

Noted above

Thank you for your attitude towards freedom of speech and free flow of information....compared to some others.

CTDrifter or anyone else interested....I'm banned from posting in any engine thread because of, well, you know who, but if you or anyone else are seriously looking for a BMW MLSD as you asked about in the forum, they are available for $1700 on eBay and if eBay has another sale day, you could take $100 off that bringing the cost down to about what it was for 4 days (Black Friday-Cyber Monday 2017) after the $1000 rebate, inflation and new MSRP adjusted.

In fact, eBay had a 8% eBay Bucks Back Bonus that would have resulted in a $136 credit, but as I cannot even read the threads while logged in, I seldom read the threads any longer.

Both auto and manual were available on the links above. Appears someone purchased the MLSD for manual, perhaps CTDrifter at about 10AM this morning ET.

Ah. I asked the seller for the one I found... he said Auto only. Did not realize two ads existed.

I want this bad. Thinking hard for this spring/summer.

Do you know what additional parts would be needed for 328 install?

Stock axles work?

Driveshaft connection the same?

That's why I posted 2 links, lol.

Plug and Play.

I'd pointed you to the sticky in the N55 section. Cannot post link as I am banned from that section and cannot get to it, because of, well, you know who, as you have seen their wraith as well.
