        So does this mean anything for us if they win this lawsuit?

        Are you insinuating that anything contained in the Complaint is incorrect?

        For diehard enthusiasts we can live with a failed pump or two. But for someone who just bought the car and wants to drive it to the store and back, and thats all hes going to do with it; a failed pump is unacceptable and I agree with them 100%.

        You're missing the entire point. Either that or your reading comprehension is off today.

        No, I just thought that the hatred was amusing. Glad to see they hated it enough to actually organize something serious.

        I doubt the attorneys hate anything. They are just doing what they do--representing their clients' interests.

        I should of replaced "they" with "the clients". But yes, the attorneys are doing a good job.

        It's a well drafted pleading. The problem is that attorneys usually have problems in drafting Complaints, because they have to translate their clients' experiences to paper. When you don't experience something first hand, it's difficult to write about.

        Not missing the point at all. I understand that BMW needs to do something about the issue and the document does a fine job of illustrating all the defects.


        All im saying is that some people are more forgiving when it comes to these types of defects, i.e. enthusiasts who will take their BMW with them to the grave. All other people will find this unacceptable. In either case, the lawyer is not hating anything; hes using the legal system to make BMW fix where they failed.

        In my opinion they should have come out with this suit 3 years ago, they waited to long.

        Does that appear to you that it was written by someone with non-enthusiast knowledge? I'm willing to bet the Plaintiffs are enthusiasts. Also, there were suits filed about 2 years ago. Info has long been posted on e90post about that. I'm not sure what the result was, but probably the Plaintiff settled with BMWNA.

        I concur that it was written with enthusiasts knowledge, or; the attorney joined BB and gained a lot of information regarding the N54.

        I need a grammar class, dammit. It's only with have/of and then/than. What is the technical English term for the part of the sentence that I failed at?
