I'm taking an indefinite break from posting on that site. Not because of promos, but because I really don't fit in there. The people over there as a whole are divisive and very different from the water-cooled Beetle community here. For now, I will only go there to read stuff that stirs my interest.
Me 3! I am way too old, to be fooling around with a bunch of haters. This place is perfectly fine for me. Negativity breeds negativity. And this place makes me happy! You guys are great, thanks for being here.
I have about a total of 15 posts there. I got a connection for ecu tuning and monitor deletes there and overall not a bad experience. Had a few questions answered and a few ignored. IMO, anything to do with cars and modding them is a pissing contest. It just gets magnified with the anonymity of the internet. You think vortex is bad, try a wrx forum! The only reason I signed up at clubwrx is for the classifieds
I guess I'm in a minority around here. I don't have much of an issue with the Tex. I've been a member for a number of years there and have found it helpful quite often. But we also have diesels and a mk1. I tend to stay out of the mk4 forums though :lol: I'm also an all around car nerd so I love The Car Lounge.
I'm with Jess on this one. A visit to the Lounge is a everyday thing for me. I also stay out of the MK4 forums. I venture in the NB sections looking for info and parts,the classified sections for wheels and tires. I have bought and sold stuff on the Tex. I look at like this, in any group of people you will have some people wearing azzhats. The bigger the group, the higher number of people wearing their azzhats.
the beetle does have a decent following, it is a "respected" vehicle in the modern crowd. I used to go on the new beetle section but I realized it's all the same people that are already here on the .org.
I have had good luck on the tex but that's mainly because I don't leave the regional forums.
