I can see it now -- you'll hook up jumper cables to another BMW with a dead battery and both cars will show a "duplicate IP address exists on the network" message...

My Ride: 2004 BMW 530i - no mods. Pretty basic really. I mean it has tires, windows, and a sweet look, what more could a man want? Honestly, I'd like to improve the sound system mildly, and possibly find a worthy engine mod that would increase my BHP by 100 without giving an arm and a leg for. I don't think it's out there, so I'll stay stock and love driving my 530i.

Hello BMW Assist, I am 192.234.168.2, I think I have a problem with my car - I just dropped a pair of scissors in the hood.

It may get hard for SPAM filters because "Want to add 4 inchs?" may actually be talking about wheel bases or spacers.
