What does eveyone think to the 'letters' pages in the last 2 editions of the BMW car club magazine?

A load of self-serving bollocks. I shan't be renewing my membership. :evil:

do you actually like driving at all or are cars to you just a manifestation of some sort of pathological mother complex ?

Subtle as ever spokey --------- :lol: :lol: :lol:

The letters and responses dont do the club any favours.

I struggled to see value in the Carclub membership. Especially for the family membership that I took out the first year.

I was contemplating not renewing my membership when the whole forum, thing blew up. That sealed it for me. Sure there was fault on both sides, but IMO the club were not really looking for a solution that kept the existing forum in place. When a club has their own interests ahead of the members then its time to go. :(

It a shame really as they could do so much good if they tried.

I rejoined this year - but not for the magazine or anything other than access to the discounted warranty rates for PN's roadster - the whole thing has struck me as completely ineffective for a number of years

could not care less to be honest either

have not really followed the whole forum issue, logged on once ages ago and did not find it particularly interesting, usefull etc.

am not really a "club" person anyway, much prefer the individual character of e.g. this board, even though it is in an way "the un/official board" of the z register of the BMWCCGB.

have only renewed because of the discounts and the occasional interesting article in the magazine, but in terms of club life, I never really got/wanted to get anything out of it.

I am sure it serves a purpose for those show & shine enthousiast, personally am more of a drive-dine-drive enthousiasts.

Renewal is not due until May next year, and my guess is I will be renewing though but will stay away from any of the forums officially linked to the BMWCCGB or the spin-off that caused all the mayhem

Well I was asked to run the local BMW Car Club by Jeff Heywood & Howard Walker, who seem to be the two main protagonists in the current 'battle'.

It seems Howard, a stalwart of the club, has been asked to leave (see bimmer-board.co.uk) the club!

I'm totally gobsmacked by it and an considering my position. I wondered if I was alone in being 'unhappy' with things in the club. Seems I'm not!

If you amble over to www.bavarian-board.co.uk (the old car club forum) you will see that you DEFINTELY aren't alone. :wink:

Spokey, I think there are a few who are too - 'emotional' about it all over there and I know the opinions on here are a little more considered (mostly :wink: ), so wanted to know what we all thought.

BTW, Mozilla doesn't crash when I log on there, even though IE6 and BT Yahoo explorers do (which is probably nothing to do with me also registering on the 'new' & very exclusive BMW Car Club forum).
