In Praise of the MR2.ie Members 6 Years, 1 Month ago  
I've read through some of the responses in this forum. This place has a fantastic mentality not often seen in the car community. Where as most people are 'it's your car, do what the hell you want with it, but don't come crying to me if it blows up.', this place bucks the trend with 'everyone has a different opinion' and you guys are respectful and mature about acknowledging this. I see no signs of elitism or status symbols here.

You guys are great!

[Edit] I can only hope this mentality will rub off on me. From now on I leave my humility at the mercy of this forum.

The forum is a credit to the senior members and those who created it!

They know who they are and I couldn't possibly thank them enough for their wealth of knowledge, sound advice and willingness to help.

I think you got it in one. And its not just the Senior members - some people make more posts than others but every positive post/attitude, no matter how small helps. So, well done to all

It is very true that the forum is a nice place and very helpful. Other forums have rubbed off on me in a bad way and that became quickly evident when i came here with my shoot from the hip attitude glady i think i have become more accepting and realsised again that we are all just peeps looking to talk about cars and have a good time enjoying our hobby

Go MR2.ie!

Totally agree with everything said, great banter between regulars, many of whom have never met in person and only the very odd user going off on a serious rant

KC's allround

Same as the above, I wouldn't have an MR2 if it was not for this site. Easily the best car forum I have found.
