    One (1) PM allowed in Inbox?!?

    One (1) PM allowed in Inbox?!? Really? I'm looking to get back into a BMW and I get 1 whole PM allowed in my box... Ridiculous. Maybe 5 or 10. 1..
    Fail. Thanks.
    Guess I have to spout unnecessary crap (read posts) to get a higher allowance...

    It is done that way to prevent random people from signing up and sending our members spam through PMs.
    Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by hundreds of engineers that get paid thousands of dollars for something you bought at Pep Boys because your buddy who doesn't have a job told you it was 'better'?!?

    How do we get more than one? I don't own a BMW yet so I rarely post but am actively looking right now and the one PM limit makes it a bit rough...

    Meant 200 pm capacity. When I posted the open I had the 10 required posts and time but still had one pm slot, that's all I meant. Thanks!

    I fell victim to same 1 post maximum. I've been a member here for 7 years and still have this restriction.

    Should change the criteria to include a minimum member time.

    As someone getting into BMW's specifically purchasing a BMW from the classifieds section this is really detrimental to me. I have to send my message, then delete the sent message, then hope only 1 guy at a time responds. Even 5 would be good at this point.

It's not hard, get out there contribute and it only takes about an hour. Just commenting peoples cars is good too.

    Thanks guys. I've been on Bimmerforums for years, but only now finally using the forum. Had no idea why I only was able to receive 1 PM. Now I know. Thanks

    Just found the same thing while trying to purchase something via classifieds. This should be post #7 on my way to getting my inbox "released".

    This is an interesting solution to spam. Sure makes trying to purchase/sell something here difficult. :/

    I have been a member since 2007 and I only have 1 PM allowed. I guess I have to post instead of just reading. I finally have a project that I want to talk about so I am posting so others can PM me.
