Having many times read the posts on two other VW club sites, I can genuinely appreciate this site. Instead of a gaggle of "boy racers" and ego jousters, we seem to have enthusiastic, but mature owners interested in adding to the knowledge and the appreciation base of the group as a whole.

I bought my 2003 W8 Variant new, and have enjoyed it for over 60K. My only issue has been a torque converter (under warranty). Unlike the plethora of street racing complainers citing brake pad/rotor replacements in the 20K range, and other premature wear issues, I've done almost all of my own work (with my Bentley manual) including sparkplugs at 40K, rear pads at 50K, and most of the items called for on the maintenance schedule.

I particularly enjoy the mature civility diplayed on this site, and am very appreciative of the originator. Marco

I'm loving this forum! It's about time we have a forum strictly dedicated to the W8 and it's owners!!

Same here.

I caught myself (saying to myself) the other day, I like this forum, but its real slow. I then realised that if I just sit here, and read/lurk instead of joining in & participating, then Im one of the reasons for it not being a bit faster than it could be.

Although, I do get tied up at times, and can only afford a quick peek before passing out at night.
Tonights not one of them, since I seem to be rattiling off at the mouth tonight.

Since the W8 is a small ownership circle to begin with, its nice to have a more focused tight knit place, rather than searching thru pages over at PW.
