  1. ON-TOPIC
    Posts must be on-topic, relating to discussion of MINI's or other NAM discussion areas. Posts in the wrong discussion areas will be moved without notice and posts that are not on topic for any NAM discussion area will be deleted without notice.

  2. RESPECT
    When posting, both members and vendors must ALWAYS be respectful of fellow members and vendors. Personal attacks and flames will not be tolerated. If you feel you are being attacked, report the post or private message rather than replying or flaming back.

  3. SEARCH
    Before posting, use the Search function to see if there has already been a thread on the same subject. Do not start identical threads or cross-post the same thread in different forums.

  4. CLEAN
    Do not post explicit, obscene or vulgar language and do not solicit or offer explicit, X-rated, or similar content. Use of the private messaging system in this way is also prohibited.

  5. LEGAL
    Posts relating to street racing, excessive speeding, or violations of other laws are prohibited. If you want to race, take it to a legal venue.

  6. VENDOR
    If you wish to advertise and/or perform market research on NAM, or communicate in any way with our members you must be a paying Vendor. Click on Contact Us found in the Main Menu block to learn more. Group buys must be arranged through NAM vendors.

  7. DISCUSS
    If you are a vendor selling a product, and you make a quantitative claim about its function or performance, you should expect to be questioned for data to back up that claim. Since this is a discussion forum, posts in areas other than Vendor announcements will result in questions, scrutiny and discussions.

  8. RESPONSIBILITY
    It is the responsibility of vendors and members to address inquiries however they see fit as long as it falls within the Site Guidelines. The moderation team will not respond on the behalf of vendors or other members.

  9. NO OTHER SITES
    Advertising of products or solicitation of traffic for other websites is forbidden without prior express written permission from NAM staff.

  10. POLITICS & BANNING
    Discussions related to politics and banning are not permitted. Comments or questions regarding banning should be sent in through the Contact Us link found in the Main Menu block.

  11. SIGNATURES
    A maximum of 300 characters OR an image with dimensions of 500 pixels wide by 100 pixels and filesize of 40k or less is allowed.

  12. ACCOUNTS
    Each member may have only one NAM user account.

  13. TWO STRIKES POLICY
    Violation of any of the above rules can result in the offender being issued a "First Strike". Additional violations will result in the offender being permanently banned from the site.

  14. DISCIPLINE
    Violation of any of the above rules will result in a warning and/or "1st Strike" by the moderation team via email or PM. Interpretation and enforcement of these guidelines is done by the moderators and staff of NAM and all judgments are final. It is not possible to list every possible contingency and variation on each rule, hence the need for human interpretation by the above parties for each specific case.

Before proceeding you must also agree to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.
