Hello!

Yes, you must be new. We will need the following info:

Car type, year, mods, and any service records you can scan in.

Pics of car, and yourself included if screen name implies female.

Your planned choice of oil.

Are both rear fog lights working?

Brand / offset of tires. Spacers?

Thank you for your cooperation.

I like it. This is the new application process to weed out the bots and durametric knock off pushers. And if they say anything about their macan with check engine log illuminated, auto disqualification.

Was that for me or is Sophie going to offer the board pages of Apple and Samsung products?

My reply was a joke about very over-discussed topics, and I made no mentions of 'that animal who's name must not be mentioned'. So, this person joined and we have no car talk or pic or nada?

If my attempt at light hearted humor is viewed as trolling, just say it. Sorry if some are the "hello, goodbye" type with no room for humor.

I don't think this applies to anything in this thread? What in here would cause "maximum disruption" or even an argument?

We're not all sexist on this forum, Sophie. We'd like to see pictures of your car, not necessarily of you (although that would be ok too ).

Inb4 Sophie is a self made independent woman that has bought other assets and improvements before the boxster.


As an aside, her page says she owns a cayman, so much for convertibles being "chick cars."
