      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  2. How Is The Internet Changing Owners Clubs?

    What ever you own a forum specific to that is vital in my opinion,no one knows the ups and downs of ownership more than owners themselves generic forums still have there place, i tend to look at it like this owners forums = your local pub,everyone know everyone generic forums = the bar you meet your mates on a Friday night,yes its a nice place to be but you limited to who you can talk to forum apps = well they are just another comunication tool take it or leave it
  3. How Is The Internet Changing Owners Clubs?

    so having never attended a car meet is it a big problem with the police,I am more into motorbikes myself and attend lots of biker meets and have never been asked to move on As for online forums i love them,what ever your problem is from vehicles to i've stubbed my big toe there is a answer on line I belong to about 10 online forums some of which i have been on for over 10 years the best thing about forums apart from knowledge is i have met lots of new friends which i believe would not have happened if the internet hadnt arrived

    tian is made by Fuchs so i wouldnt say it was unbranded slop,all oils sold in the uk will have the API logo, It will just be a supply deal with fords next year it might be some other brand depends on how long the contrat is for people get hung up on brand loyalty and pay a premium for the name I wouldnt hesitate to use Fuchs oil in my vehicles

    what an open question,its like how long is a peice of string,100's of polishes on the market first question i would ask myself is what do i want to acheive total paint protection or a nice shine for a weekend drive,if its the latter then good old Auto Glym Super Resin polish works really well if your going for protection/defect correction then i hope you have a deep wallet
