Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

In order to enable users to quickly assess whether they will be able to assist posters with their queries, and to ensure that moderators can at a glance check that posters are giving the basic info necessary to avoid wasting other user's time asking basic questions, there exists a requirement for thread titles to contain the following information:

[Car Year][Car Model]: [Brief description of issue]

Sadly (and despite the great big orange box spelling it out), around 30% of members posting in the workshop are still failing to meet these basic good sense requirements.

Auditing these threads, and trying to gain compliance has proved an incredibly time intensive and generally unproductive process for the moderation team.

In response to these facts we have created an F1 style Pit Lane into which all threads with non-compliant thread titles will be moved. No replies can be made to threads in The Pit Lane, but the original poster is able to edit their thread title. Once they do that, and the thread title meets the published requirements, the thread will be moved back into the workshop forum where the rest of the membership base (freshly furnished with all the info they need to help without wasting their time) will no doubt be able to assist.

So if you're looking for your thread you posted in the workshop and has now vanished, odds are that you need to visit The Pit Lane and revise your thread title.
