1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    My search for a new car started today. I won't be actually buying for another six months or so, so trying to get a picture of whats out there for around 16k.

    Took a DS5 diesel for a test drive today. The DS brand is marketed at the top end of citroens range and I must admit that I was impressed by how well it was put together and the way it drove.

    Im going to be looking at used bmw 3 or 5 series, audi a4 or 6s and merc c or e class but the citroen is a lot of car for the money for year old ex demos and I like that its so different from the norm.

    Anyone else on here own or driven one?

    I did the same kinda search as you and ended up buying a new BMW 116i Sport. Would have gone for an Audi if it wasn't for the crazy lead times!! If you want an Audi in 6 months order it now! lol (is a slight exaggeration -5months lead time back in march when I was looking).

    Yeah, thats what I thought but theres no denying that this is a quality motor with fit and finish to rival german cars. I had the feeling I was driving something a bit special and did notice it was drawing a few admiring looks.
    At the moment this is top of my list but the only thing that bothers me is that its brimming with technology and the french reputation for reliability in this department is a bit suspect.

    For those that dont know what it looks like heres a pic

    Buy the BMW. You know it makes sense. I'd suspect that the "fit and finish" of which you speak is skin deep. Dig a little deeper and I'm sure you'll find the car you know it really is under the surface.

    ^^ this. turds can be sprinkled with much glitter. they are still turds. i have a peugeot partner for work (would never part with money for one) from new. my 2000 audi a3 feels better to drive with 140k on the clock.

    my advice? buy an old german car, get it working right, then park where you like without fear of scratches etc, drive it like you stole it, stack it in the hedge when passing in lanes, care not, what's the most you could lose?

    Had a couple of citroens in the past, I loved them they are quirky but they depreciate like mad. Unless you intend to drive it till the wheels fall off steer clear as you will lose a fortune especially on the top end ones. ATB Barry
