Suddenly I'm filled with unease at this news.  :scared:

SteveP has been a great since the beginning with this forum, keeping it free of adverts and sponsors has definitely made this site the thriving community it is today and it is a sad day that he cannot continue to run/own the site. His commitment has been unwavering, even in the adversity of constant personal peanut head attacks :signLOL:

I for one salute you MrP   :notworthy:

Golf R gone.

Only been on the this forum less than a year and frequent the others no more!  :happy2:

The spirit of community and freindship are it's greatest assets and that comes down from the top. In the time I've been here ive made some good friends, learnt invaluable things about the car and just about everything else you care to mention and in the background is steveP making everything run like clockwork without a lot of praise.

Never met you Steve but have the upmost respect for the work you have done. Hope you find a person/persons who will keep the forum going as if nothing as changed. A hard act to follow   :notworthy:

(P.S.  this would be a good time to ask for forum donations peeps)

This is really bad news.

Steve, I wish I had the skills but I don't. I have the time when I am on nights but.............

The two years has certainly cost me some money but thoroughly enjoyed it.

Please reconsider.................... :popcornsoda:
