Of course not. Do you think that I am going to seriously waste my time to reply to each of them?

...especially when they are confusing reputation score with some sort of magic reply count?

Wait until they find out that they need a 500 rep to get the fix for the infected maps/coding info that bricks their cars.....

Hi,

It seems I need to post more replies in order to be abble to post or receive PMs.
Here seemed the logical place to start :-)
BTW is this not a risk to get many meaningless messages?

Not as much as the risk to get virus-infected code or map files that disable your car forever!

You're probably right.
Now, the alternative is to go to one of the 100s sellers online with prices going from a few $ to a few 100s, but where are their maps or code from? How is that safer?

I'm not trying to justify anything here, just pointing out how difficult it is when you're new to the BMW world, to find your way :-)
