Hi i am new on here and dont want to upset anyone, i just wondered what the thinking is on not letting new members sell or do deals on the sight for the first 3 months or 100 post's.
I joined the other day and received some good advice on a xenon problem i had on a car that i had just bought e46 325i sport saloon.
I decided to scrap the xenons and revert to a standard set up as i could not be doing with the warning light on the dash.
I thought i would give someone the opportunity of a free upgrade.
So i posted ilegaly ( i hadnt read the rules at the time ) and offered anyone a swap, my xenon set up for there standard set up. As you can imagine i got an instent response and arranged a meet.
When i met the other member this morning he told me that after i had gone off the addministrater had deleted the thread and gave us a warning about rule breaking.
I apologise about breaking the rules. I understand that they are there for a reason, and didnt do it on purpose.
But i thought the idea of having a forum is to put like minded petrol heads in touch with each other to make life easyer for each other. Both of us were happy with this sight for suppling the medium for us to get in touch and it was a good outcome for everyone.
Surely when you first get your car and discover teathing problems, it is then that opportunitys arise. Not letting you do any deals for 3 months is a little bit excessive.
