Official Stupid Questions Thread

Let's have some fun. Since the past few days we have been getting so many fabulous questions asked, I thought I'll start an official thread to keep all stupid questions in one place. (This is not a jab at anyone, just trying to have some fun)

I'll start.

Hey guys I was about to drive my new M3 yesterday and I noticed that there was some dirt on my front bumper.

Is this normal?

When I turn on the car, there is a screen that informs me about safety. In my old car, I had to press a button. In the new car, I don't. I want to know who is pressing the button for me.

Mine seems to have a large rectangular hole above the dashboard that seems to have been patched up with a plate of glass - is this normal ?

Also there appears to be "third pedal" just to the left of the brake - mad or what !

Also my left ear appears to be deaf on account of a man who owns a 335i going on about how his car is faster for about the last 6 months.

Also I feel compelled to post hundreds of questions on the internet about the correct driving for the running in period despite the instructions being on a sticker right in front of my face. Oddly stuck to the same piece of glass that was used to block up the hole above the dash.

Also could you possibly tell me what colour I like best ?

Also could you tell me if black is hard to keep clean ?

Also why do people from Europeland have a different shaped bum to people from California(erm - doughnuts maybe) ?

Also could you tell me if white is hard to keep clean ?

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa !!!

It's hard to even post after Ken's questions... I think there is some "natural selection" indicators in those questions, Darwin would love it! here are a few more I have noticed:

"Should I order an M3?"

"Will I like the M-DCT or should I stick with the 6MT?"

"Why can't I have front PDC and lose those reflectors?

"Why is my order delayed 2 months?"

Anything that starts with: "question about clear bra".

The following have actually been posted here a long time ago:

"Will the new M3 have a rear view camera?"

"Will the new M3 rev to redline in all gears?"

"I've never driven a manual transmission before; should I learn on the new M3?" (after asking if he should buy the new M3 to begin with)

"Are we to beilive that the lower gear ratio is some kind of tuqure multiplier? In your dreams if this is what you think" (his misspellings, not mine.)

Best thread I have seen in awhile.

Check out this little gem I saw the other day. Some of you might remember it.

Quote:
Car runs perfectly but I notice the bottom part of the exhaust pipe is blakened somewhat (not groossly). The material is dry and black and not really oily.

Normal??

I was joking about the "remember" part. Most people have seen it by now.

Also, your response = FAIL, for this thread.

To add on to the color bit;

Lots of threads about what color and options do you think I'll like and THEN they say "any pics of the different colors? Send them to me"

AGGGHHHH

Maybe this one should be asked by some Service Dealers (I hope only a few service dealers):

Should I replaced the M-DCT transmission oil during the initial 1200 miles service?
If I replace the t-fluid, should I use a special fluid made for DCT or just the normal MT t-fluid?
