I was not trying to be caustic about UK-POLOS.NET when I made my suggestion about sticking with only one brand and model on each forum, its just that there are lots of potential "forum members" out there and if they join the wrong one then their "forum experience" is a bit jaded if no good replies pour in or the search function can not help them due to low content (low volume). I know there was a 1.2 Ibiza or Fabia owner on this site's Ibiza or Fabia sections that had a real problem but was not getting any answers quickly, I suggested that they posted on the "more brand specific" forum for quicker/better help, unfortunately they then went and posted on the site I advsed but in the wrong (in my mind) section - and got no replies - except from me who advised him to post in the general model section. By that time I seem to think that he had given up on using forums so disappeared - which was a bit of a shame really as he needed urgent help which I could not give him. So I'd say posting Ibiza 6L and Fabia ?? ie platform specific questions into the Polo 9N1 section is good as it gets proper visability and is meaningful as lots of this platform's problems are common across all three brands - That's all, remember we are all here due to our interest in these cars, I am a Polo 9N "minder" and subscribe to the Seat and Fabia specific forums also to extend my knoweledge base and to help others.

That meet looks like one of the biggest Brisky meets in this area for a long while..... Last time i can remember one as big as this was a few years ago when we took over the Meadowhall retail park car park. :lol:
