    There are loads of other build threads out there in other model sections.
    Granted most are not as fast or engine based build like you guys but are still good reading.
    The only trouble is you got to trawl through many other posts and sections to find any build threads.

    Be great if they was all in one location where you can see all build threads for ever model.

    You cause arguements and that's why posts double. The amount of threads that get edited or locked are also doubled.

    It's the massive negative response something's get.
    Questions that are read a different way to how the are ment,
    The WE know it all speeches ,
    I love the forum for help and interesting reads , just to be clear non of the people I've had help from fall into the above,
    not many of us have the time,money or enthusiasm to make such great build threads, I for one can only do it bit by bit... Hopefully a lot of the big chunks have been spent now ,
    the spring will liven this place up, people are low on time and money this time of year

    I think... We all care,
    hints and tips along the way encourage me to go the extra mile and look at new mods

    Now i'm not naming names or pointing fingers but this mod isn't too far away \/

    I really would like to see this thread... as i cant see it actually being how you say...
    Most people in here will slate the bigger companies and really respect the work of Bill and Nick,
    I for one am a bugger for trying to get my point across on a forum/website only for it to be read as argumentative...
    Do you have an 8L based car then? feels like alot of people are in this section just to voice opinions on people rather than cars.

    Sorry if that sounds bad...just that i keep reading comments like "i havent got an A3 myself but ..."

    I use this forum for knowledge and help, and the occasional blog update for my two S3's (8L and 8P).
    Don'y really have time to get involved in the politics or banter whatever its called these days.

    A lot of "banter" is not received in good spirit,
    sometimes because it's just plan over the top and dismissive of somebody's ideas or questions,
    I have only one real issue with the site...
    If your post, thread or question isn't new and cutting edge then you get dismissed or plain slatted for it,
    I like to use forums to keep in touch with other members with the same kind of cars and as such some threads are more like a " what's your take on this ? Or should I do this or ... This"
    only to be told " use the search function "

    Using the search button is not always the right option as it may bring up outdated info also a forum is no dead with nobody posting just searching imho

    I like to ask questions... I shy away from it on here for the large part...
    my love for the S3 comes and goes in waves... So if it seems I've asked before ... That may well have been 6months of, and we all know developments with this engine and tuning is fast moving,
    I've tried searching... And for the large part had no real joy with it,so I sit here with questions to ask but just end up annoying Prawn via Facebook about them...

    Searching is fine for some questions like Will these wheels fit my car or can I fit theses seats. Having a quick search to see if its been asked and answered so you understand it but if not. Ask away.

    Like MrV said, answers can be out of date cause new or better ways could have been found or a fellow member is doing the same thing so its good to share.

    Some older members can get a bit annoyed with answering or seeing the same questions over and over again but they don't have to click on the thread if it annoys them and the answer/lock with "use the search, its been done before" type of response won't do the forum as a whole any good and can stop people wanting to post or join up.

    i'm all for people being helpful, but it doesn't half make me angry when someone asks a question, and gets 10 replies, and 9 of those replies are just plain wrong. It leaves the OP struggling to sift through the bull **** and the genuine info.

    we do, but I've never seen any pictures and who wants to just read about it. A picture says a thousand words, therefore quit moaning make a build thread with pics and people might be interested. I'm sure I would be.

    I was taking the piss dude. I should have started a build thread 2 years ago but its a bit late and I hate fighting to put pics up. Might put some naked ones up to gauge interest and go from there.
