Guys, i have removed the video that was posted, because of something happening to a person we know on the other site and i am just making sure it doesn't happen with the person who posted this one as well.
I only moved it as a precautionary measure. Basically its better to be safe than sorry.  :drinking:

^^^^

Perhaps it would be a good idea to make a forum 'rule' that no vids of such behaviour in cars should be posted on this site.

And also, if you haven't already, cover yourselves as the site owners as having no responsibility whatsoever for what members post.

This site (in my opinion) should not condone irresponsible/inappropriate driving and/or boasting about such behaviour. [Now I really am talking like everyone's dad!]

We don't want to be all tarred with the same brush or associated with bad driving or bring the GTI into bad repute like the Saxo etc.

Thanks Red, there are various forum rules and guidelines, this is the one one posted in members intro's.
As usual people are people and just like a Ikea flat pack people dont always read the information provided.
This is were we should just look out for each other and if someone makes a mistake we should all help sort it out. The person who posted the video has apologised and thanked us for sorting it out so subject closed happy days.  :grouphug:

What happened? Obviously I missed something over there.

The GTI isn't just a machine. It's very much a living, breathing thing.

YEah I knew about the thread here. Didn't know about the video posting on the other site or what happened.

All it was stealthwolf was a remapped ed30 struggling to put any power donn from different speeds. No such problem for both you and myself  :wink:.

Well done mods for removing :smiley:
