Rep ? I just checked mine. It's only 13. With as many helpful posts as we have , I doubt this rep system is an accurate gauge for your character on the board anyways.
I don't ever look/care, except that my post has a big red "-1" on it.

y the attitude cuz i work at a dealer? makes alot of sense...i have helped alot of people on forum boards with parts, unknown issues with vehicles, and ive found several vehicles for people looking for something particular, not to mention ive made alot of friends and learned alot about cars from these boards..that is why im here...ive answered 2 emails from people asking questions about the new GS's since i posted the car on here that had nothing to do with buying one if u think im only here to try to sell cars or something...i see older GS's everyday and talk to the people who drive them and can provide a wealth of information about the cars and i have access to every part or accessory new or used for buick vehicles..not to mention i can get pretty much anything anyone is looking for in a Buick or GMC vehicle in usually 24 hours new or used and most chevys and cadillacs also...if you dont want to be friends thats fine believe me your not gonna hurt my feelings..but i assure you some people on here will find me helpful
My "attitude" has nothing to do with you being a dealer. How about having an intro thread that says something along the lines of. "Hi, I'm Mike. I work at _____ I joined your forum this morning. Obviously I sell cars and would love to talk to any of you with questions around the brand new GS. In fact, check out the for sale section where I've posted a good deal I have right now.(link). In addition, My background is w Ford and the SVT line. I was actively involved in several of those forums before I switched over to the current Buick dealership where I work now. I'm also very familiar with the W-bodiy platform and in general am a car enthusiest.. ...."
When you join a forum and the very 1st post is about your car for sale I think that takes from credibility. Certainly I think people that work at dealerships can be an asset to a community like this due to access to various tools/mechanics and being in the industry. I just think your method of introduction didn't strike the proper cord with me.
I will recant my negative statement, and say Welcome and enjoy!
