Exclamation Please read!

I hope this won't extend my temporary ban since it gets lifted in 8 hours. This post is merely intended to calm everyone down.

Maybe they can set up a group buy section on the forum to simplify things????

The admins have given a ban because I might have insulted amdeutsch... Multiple times. The group buy will come, be patient. The site for the GB is up and running and will be going live this week.

There is already a group buy forum on this site. The reason why GBs are moderated: money. People would get screwed in every hole and a lot of money would be lost. It would likely mean the end of these forums and who would want that? I wouldn't. Patience is a virtue!
Besides, after this GB nobody will need new LEDs

Please be patient, it is not the moderators or the administrators fault that there is a delay. The problem was me getting angry at amdeutsch and banned for 3 days. I am sorry for this.

Also have to consider these forums are really run and paid for through sponsor support. If we have everyone going straight to the manufacturer/distributor, undercutting the sponsor in price, you'd be losing a lot of sponsor support. That was one of the things they check to make sure what we're selling isn't offered by any of them.

lol @ getting mad at a mod and getting banned... all forums(mods) are the damn same lol...

gilles i find it very big of you to take the responsibility/blame for this... but this is a online internet forum in the end... you should be able to say what you want (within reason) without penelty... no matter who it is about... or towards.

either way i'm glad the wheels are in motion for this GB...

Thanks Gilles. If I knew you were banned then I wouldn't have bumped this thread. We're all looking forward to this GB. TIA.

so does that mean after you ban is lifted, the moderators will allow you to hold another group buy? or still waiting for moderators approval?

You really threw me for a loop and, if I were part of the GB, I would have gotten very mad at the hosts. What do you mean Mr. Vanos controls this forum? This is a Mercedes forum and Vanos is all BMW (as in M54, etc.). Please, do not start any wars. The world is mad enough as it is.

Cheers and hope you laughed, JV

?? Mr Vanos is the MBWorld founder and head admin. He has generally has final say for all intents and purposes here. And I believe he still has his E55. This forum is corporate owned by InternetBrands and they have final say in everything. And not starting any wars. Just stating that if you go closer to the top, you can't be overruled by any under that hierarchy.

All the black customization you have done looks great against the white car. Well done. Any suggestions to someone brand new to Benz World. I just bought a 2008 C350 Sport, and it's completely factory.

Start by changing the yellow marker lights.
