Dead? Hardly! As the saying goes, Quality, not Quantity.

Without trying to be antagonistic, I felt that the social scene in the North West was lacking and got annoyed to that end. Rather than accepting it, I threw out an open invitation to meet up at the start of the year. We've managed to cobble together a nice meet up point once a month with a bunch of guys that hadn't really met before getting together and discussing all things life/cars/whatever. This wasn't a regular 911uk thing from what I can tell, but it is now.
So rather than standing on the outside and questioning how quiet it is, perhaps you're asking the wrong question?

Well you southerners (actually I'm pretty sure I'm the most southerner person here bar 1 guy, Systech1 who's from Adelaide) were the driving force behind the idea. It's proven to be great move as it's given us all an opportunity to meet people we'd otherwise never meet. Thumb

From someone who's posted 19 times in 2.5 years. Floor

iirc you were going to get a 991 in 2015. What happened?



Yeah but that’s based on just two visits to the site. I obviously got bored on the first visit too Floor

Dont know why I didn’t buy in 2015 other than to start a 3 year love affair with BMW, why the interest ?

So, seems my post has ‘drummed up’ a MASSIVE 35 responses in a week which makes it one of the ‘busiest’ threads on here in the last year !!

I’ll stick by my opening post then eh ? Grin Grin

Indeed Ive changed a few times. Simple answer though is that I like cars.

Rather than "why so many?" I would ask "why not?" Thumb

Observation:

It would seem to me that after your somewhat derogatory original post ... .....forum members have attempted to look past it and engage you in polite banter designed to involve you and perhaps get you to reciprocate in the normal forum ‘chat’ .......
You , however after your ignominious start are being very defensive and not very forthcoming ....
Might I suggest to be a bit more open , and enjoy the banter , Enter into the spirit of it , you will enjoy this forum more than most out there .
....If you enjoy forum craic of course ...
