Default Do you think Saxp is as much of a community anymore?

As above.

It seems now theres just like a small group of about 10 members that banter between them selfs. Then the rest is just random contributions from random members.

Where as before everyone was one big happy family ha

Also can someone find the bunbun family pics thread for me please

Probably got too many idiots like me who can't resist the urge to put down those that post shit and stupid stuff, but never actually go to meets or car shows, or really care about cars or even own a saxo for that matter... So no is my answer, but there are probably small groups who do get on, but don't post much

Sax-p always used to have groups of people that got on well and there was always banter between them all.

A lot of the decent people have moved on now and have been replaced by what I can only describe as retards.

I can only comment on my experience over the past year since been a memeber but comes across as a good place for a bit of banter, general natter about things and some good bits of car advise knocking around too. You do have to put up with Viper at times but I've got use to that by now lol.

I went to my first Sax-p meet last week. Only took 2 years haha.

But even then, out of the 20 odd that said they were definitely coming, only 5 of us turned up. I'll try to help out people in the tech sections if they're stuck with something but I'd much prefer to make an idiotic, racist, corsa driving newbie look a retard.

Doesn't help that I don't own a Saxo anymore and will never own another. But the banter keeps me coming back.

Get to summer and things will be fine again. Winter means fuck all meets, get the meets rolling and Saxp becomes one huge happy family again

You always will have people form groups.

People go to meets and make friends. Share hotel rooms, or bodily fluids.

Most threads are full of people trying to be witty regardless of topic, followed by fanboys offering praise and applause.

It was probably around back in the day but I didnt notice it as much as I do now.

We still had a cracking saxp meet up north last week with old members and friends,it will be getting built upon again through the year.

Having never owned a saxo in all my days, I still feel welcome- even more so at meets like bolton abbey which is pretty much my favourite one of the year
