I get a lot more replies there than here. It's a good 2nd resource.

There are two fb groups for the 924, i’m a member of both.
If you want to sell something like i will want to sell my sc kit, fb is a good place to be as there are loads of people there…but it all comes with a price..
The thing about fb is that you have to either mute everybody and everything or sort out trough tons of garbage.
This forum is clean, select, focused and polite, while fb is a trash mix of literally everything out there.
We are blessed with this small comunity and stable platform, so thank you guys and thank you Peter

My wife has an account so I use hers when I REALLY have to be on it. Otherwise, I'd be happy if it went away completely.

...but I also have a nephew that will update me on the FB group

I like and prefer it here too for all that Morghen mentioned

FB has it's pros and cons and there are a couple of groups that are worth watching for info, parts sales and even "entertainment".

But I also agree with many of Morghen's points, and two examples come to mind. One is a fellow from the UK I believe who was on various 924/944 groups and thinks that he's God's gift to the transaxle world. Although he sometimes is helpful, many times he's distainful and very rude. Frankly I don't see his posts anymore so I'm guessing he either blocked me or got booted from the various groups for his caustic behavior. Another is a fellow who purchased Rom's GTP recreation and named it 924-007. Again he seems like a nice guy and "friended" me as he and his mechanic needed some information, but I feel his presentation is very disingenuous and could lead to issues further down the line and I told him as much...(some who know me well understand that I'm not always politically correct when it comes to some things!!!).

On the plus side it is much easier to post photos on FB, LOL!!!
But this group is still pretty cool and members are respectful of each other and the car and that in itself keeps me coming back to check things out every morning!

I'm so glad to have been off facebook for years. I use it for marketplace occasionally when I need to sell a thing but it's been a dumpster fire for a very long time. It's a shame they basically usurped Craigslist's spot as defacto online used sales market..

I'm with the group here -- would rather interact on a forum where you know it's actually going to a) be searchable / useful for longer and b) get a more reliable and kinder set of folks..

For a car like the 924 without this forum I don't know what I'd do!
