Default Tech Guru Thing

I've just realized that I've been promoted to a Tech Guru rank.

Thanks guys!

But... It most definitely doesn't mean that I am necessarily right. Value of any online advice depends on many things. Starting with ones perception of the problem and ability to explain it (ladies are in an all different league here ) to his willingness to follow an advice. And in the middle comes advisers personal experience, theoretical knowledge and logic. So many instances to miss.

And coincidentally, I just noticed I've been promoted out of the "Junior Member" ranks!

I noticed that the other day. I was thinking I just had not noticed it prior. Congratulations, you do possess a vast amount of knowledge about these models. Thank you for your help in the past.

Hi TECH GURU Mishar,

A well-deserved designation, you certainly know what you are talking about when comes to our D3s and always have a cool-headed approach to any problems and worked your costing up from lowest and logically.
My experience with him was, I did post in this forum with my suspension issues a while ago and he(TGM) gave some valuable advices. Although didn't manage to resolve my issue 'cheaply'(ultimately replaced the leaking strut at the Dealer), but I've actually learned from his many posts to be level-headed and certainly now more knowledgeable of my D3, instead of paranoia, in facing any 'problems' that may arise and thus concentrated more on enjoying my ride!
Keep up the good contributions, sharing of your knowledge will benefit many would-be or current D3 owners. Enjoying my ride now.
You have my sincere thanks!
