When posting a car for sale...
  1. Post a specific price for your car. No BEST OFFERS accepted. This is not an auction site, eBay listings are prohibited.
  2. 'Bumping' your own thread more than once every 48 hours is prohibited, doing so will get your thread dumped. Bumping someone else's thread to increase your post count will land you in time out or banned. The extra bandwidth and space required for that eventually does bog down the board
  3. Feelers ads are not acceptable forms of advertisements. Such ads will be locked (or deleted)
  4. Do not reply to a thread that has had no activity for over six months. The standard practice is to P.M. the seller and inquire on the availability of the vehicle.
  5. Under No Circumstances is anyone to reply to a post suggesting that the car can be found cheaper elsewhere. That is the responsibility of the purchaser to look for the best deal - not for forum members to point out. Members are trying to sell their cars in a safe environment without fear of others trying to undercut their sales.
  6. Sales are to be kept to BMWs only.
  7. All sales and purchases are at the risk of the individuals involved. Please be certain that you make safe and intelligent secure payment arrangements. Bimmerforums.com is not responsible/liable for any sales that go uncompensated. We are also not responsible/liable for any car advertised for sale in this area.
  8. Any member selling/trading a vehicle(s) on this board that accepts monies from another member without honoring your end of the purchase will have their membership removed from the forum immediately.
  9. Bimmerforums.com does not promote/endorse any vehicles listed for sale in this area.
  10. There is a new regulation implemented on paypal that everyone should know about. It can be found under the Terms of Use at the bottom of the paypal page.
    "No Surcharges. Under Visa and Mastercard regulations and the laws of several states, including California, merchants may not charge a fee to the buyer for accepting credit card payments (often called a "surcharge"). You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as payment. This restriction does not prevent you from imposing a handling fee in connection with the sale of goods or services, as long as the handling fee does not operate as a surcharge (in other words, the handling fee for transactions paid through PayPal may not be higher than the handling fee for transactions paid through other payment methods)."
  1. Post the two digit state code for your location in your thread title to help narrow searches.
  2. Pictures are requested and appreciated.
  3. Post contact information... preferably a phone number or email address you know that works.
  4. Keep an eye on your thread (subscribe if necessary) and respond to people replying to your post.
Our community is savvy! By and large we don't have problems...but we have added these rules in this forum to explain proper etiquette when buying, selling or trading cars.
