    Who's interested in a free set of upgraded N54 turbos as a gift for the holidays?

    Gentlemen, this has been a very good year for BimmerBoost and the GermanBoost network in general. I wish to express my gratitude by giving back to the community. Do I have to do this? No, but I want to. So for Christmas this year I'm going to give one of you a free set of turbos, no catch.

    I'm thinking about going about this in a couple different ways. I think the best thing likely to do will be to do give away a set of Stage I Vargas Turbos and allow anyone who wins to apply that credit if they wish toward a Stage II or even Stage III.

    Vargas has said they are willing to work with me on this. Not to bring up drama, but I attempted to do this two years before with another turbo upgrade but that builder never got back to me regarding this.

    Anyway, I just want to express my appreciation to the community and mainly the N54 community which is the heart of the network as of right now. Also keep in mind, several other forums are much larger and make much more money and yet they never take anything out of their own pockets to thank the people who made it possible for their pockets to have anything in them in the first place.

    So happy holidays and I'll be announcing further details after Thanksgiving. I think we'll have this contest so to speak go until after New Year's and then the results will be tallied and a random winner will be drawn.

    All the best to all of you and thank you for your support. And thanks to those who also haven't offered their support. Either way BimmerBoost and GermanBoost are grateful.

    Simply awesome. Can there be some component to this that factors in why you should get the turbos? For instance what you plan to do innovation wise, or how the community benefits by you specifically receiving these turbos? I didn't think it all the way through, but the best gift is the gift that keeps on giving.

    That would make it too complex. It will simply be based on rep points as previously so the more you contribute and work towards it the better your odds.

    Could you elaborate on the rep points thing? I assume it means whoever earns the most rep between now and the contests end wins, correct?

    1 entry for a random drawing per rep point earned from the time of entry to the end.

    I'm sure that would be appreciated but I can easily disable rep in OT or the NWS section. Keep your ideas coming though.

    As a majority-time lurker, I approve of this. I'm here to learn and the people who contribute most deserve this opportunity more.

    We've got a really great community here and you're a big reason it's continuing to be successful, Sticky. Keep it up!

    I think that is a good idea, at least for the period of time the window is open to earn rep points for the turbo giveaway if rep points are used to determine the number of times your username is entered into the drawing.

    Instead of rep points, would you be able to send an email to each member and have them vote for the most valuable member of the community? It would need to be set up so you could only vote once per username, or IP or something.
