Well, good thing you're here or I'D be the noob LOL. IDK... I used to be here three times a day, then a couple of years ago got busy with the house and dropped off some. Last year, was crazy busy at work too and was not on here at all. I probably had under ten posts all of 2014.I know I'm the 'newest' member in this thread, but what constitutes an 'old' forum member these days?
The reason I ask, is that after the fallout from the Alan debacle, 3Si slid ever further into decline as it was split into followership on 3SGTO. Now, members that have only been on for a few years, basically those who showed up after the fiasco, now consider themselves to be 'older' members. I rarely see members who have been on before 2008 or so. Heck, even I walked away for a few years (but, that is mostly work related).
Man, I hear that. There is SO much that my car needs, although in my less OC moments I realize that it's in pretty nice shape for a 20 year old car. I started writing a list last week, it's about 20 things starting with fixing the AA, which has been inop for going on two years now, to little things like claybar and wax. Intermediate stuff like fixing the machine gun passenger door lock and tracking down a rattle in the hatch.Paul,
I completely understand where you're coming from. I've spent this past year fixing a number of nagging problems with my car which I've put off for years due to work. ABS, SRS, steering & alignment, etc. The list goes on. But, through the process of these repairs, I've been more active on the forums as I search for information. That, and I genuinely like to help people so when I see a thread about things I know a bit, I try and help rather than criticize. Maybe one day, this will catch on and the wealth of knowledge and friendship that was 3Si will return.
Same here, I haven't been on in a long time just check it to reminisce a bit. My VR4 has been sold, just got married and now saving for a house before I get another toy, who knows maybe another 3/S.Drop in every now and then to see who's still around. Sucked what happened when the forums split, that's when I personally stopped coming around. I had already sold the car and wasn't interested in the 2 forum drama anymore.
Congrats on the marriage! I remember meeting you way back, 2005 and 2006 I think. Get a house with a big garage... you'll want it later for sure, whether for a 3S or something else.Same here, I haven't been on in a long time just check it to reminisce a bit.

Good to see names I recognize.
