    I just couldn't do Facebook anymore. The amount of stupidity and misinformation, on a very regular basis, was slowly killing me on the inside. I will be here, until the very cold, bitter end, when the lights are shut off and they're forcibly pushing me, out of the door. I hope that won't be for a long time. One of the few things that has helped keep my sanity, over the years.

      Not to mention - Forums are much better for reference to problems or builds then trying to dig through old Facebook posts.

      ..and yes, the PFA is annoying and lazy.

        I don't care for the Facebook group. Its literally an avenue for selling stuff and quick answers to problems which have been discussed here constantly.

        I think the core issue is the pathway to information, people are lazy, they want instant gratification, and forums are not always the best usage for that.

        R3V on the forum side is a wealth of information, a database as you will. So we have our place.

        I'd rather step on a bed of nails than search the Facebook group.. ugh

          I'm wondering if the 2002 crowd went through a lull when they were just old cars and there was not a lot of information out there (although that was probably the pre-forums era). Look at the core of enthusiasts keeping those up now. I'm thinking that as the E30 becomes more of a classic, there will always be a tech home for the info and the enthusiasts. r3v is that home.

            The '02 crowd probably experienced this during the migration from BBS's to forums while using Sendata 700 acoustic couplers. That was followed by the E21 crowd trying to make the move to discussing things real time in chatrooms over 28.8 baud modems on AOL.

              tbh i just miss that all the memes moved to FB. The regularity of legendary threads is too low now for me.

                I mean this was like the #1 thread then it’s like weeks until people reply , I think James is right people want quick answers and with my circle of friends we sort of know what we need to knew and get by ok , so the forum is sort of dying , instagram and others are where people are migrating . I don’t really get any sales from here or sell random parts . If I need a part I ask on social media , and get what I need bought or sold immediately

                    I second that. It's painful. As in....it hurts my insides how wrong some answers are, yet get up voted in a second as the right answer.

                    Example: "I drove 60 miles on without coolant, is my head warped?" - ANSWER "No, just drop a new head gasket in and ***sent it***"

                    Someone kill me. Just drop a m20 block on my noggin. It will be over fast that way.

                    It's the land of the millennials and 18-24 year olds that buys, and then thinks. So different then what I was taught. You research for 2-3 months, think about it, and confer with others, then you buy. Not FB. You buy, and then defend what you bought like it was the best, even if it wasn't. It reminds me of the atari/console wars back in the 80/90's. You had to pretend what you bought was the best, because otherwise was to admit you screwed up.

                      I’ve never been on r3v Facebook but it sounds like a terrible place.
                      I’ve had a much better life in the year or so since I turned that pos off.

                      I lurked for a few years before becoming a member and this place is great! I have spent countless hours reading. I think I’ve learned more on here then I did at school.

                      Thanks super smart r3v dudes!

                        Unless you bought this:



                        Then you knew you were screwed as soon as you started to play it.

                              I have 4 cracked dashboards and flocking for them. I bought the kit but don't have the time to use it and I don't want to just throw the dashes away. Anyone want to undertake this project for the amount I'm into it?

                                Why so busy? Let me know I'm free on weekends sometimes and flocking a dash will take about 5 hours. I know I could do one quicker, and would love to help. I love diy stuff. I'm down.
