Welcome to the all RS, all Impreza, all NON-WRX forums hosted by me!

Why did I put this board together when there is such a good board at the i-club? Well, I personally think that readership at the i-club has suffered since the introduction of the WRX, and the new focus on the WRX at the i-club. I feel that a huge majority of users at the i-club were (and are) older model RS owners, not WRX owners.

Sure, there are many WRX owners out there, and the i-club board is great for them, but what about the RS owners? I felt that not enough attention is being given to the tried-and-true original RS owners was being given.

I mean, what's up the the WRX for the logo? I don't like the looks, nor would I buy a WRX, so I think it is about time to have what we all need - a RS FORUM!

Yo!

Nice site! Man, haven't visit your site for a while and WHAM! Big changes! Man WRX is taking over i-club! I can feel you! But still "FEW" knowledgable RS specialists out there. :D

Exactly!

That is exactly my feelings! I am hoping that over time we can get together a group of RS specialists here. Depending on the kind of volume I see I will probably pop for the full version of vBulletin as well so it has the same functionality as we are all used to - email alerts and whatnot.

Thanks for dropping by! Hopefully more will follow soon!

hard to advertise your site...

James,
Man, you sure have a nice site but i feel bad to advertise your site over at i-club. afterall, it is the 'mother' club. you know what i mean? I wish we could just 'import' the RS lovers over here. I'll spread the words 'under the table'. :lol: but most of the i-clubbers I know have been converted to WRX. Darn! Oh well...

Hey, how is that racing shifter going?

Well.

I'm not going to advertise... I figure people will find out sooner or later... and come on their own free will. Besides, think about it - there is a Club SI, right? Well, there is probably a Club Civic, too (I have no idea) and so Club SI is devoted to the older cars. That is my thinking.

Maybe when people decide that they love their old style RS's better they will just head over here... maybe not. But I am going to leave these forums up indefinately so maybe people can feel more focused over here. I like the idea of a club for the pre-WRX cars, and so I am doing something about it. :D

totally!

i totally know how you feel james. everyone on the i-club seems to be a WRX owner. WRX this and WRX that. either i'm jealous, or something. probably it's because i'm jealous! haha... :lol: but RS owners can come over here, and we can have a place for our own. and i love how the older RS looks!

Yes, the feature packed version of the bulletin board is only $160, so once I pay bills I think I will get it. I love all the features as well, and I would never think of competing without being on the same level at least! ;)

Besides, I miss the SMILIES!

Some woman called on the VW we have for sale already so looks like I might be selling it tonight. If so, then I should have a few hundred dollars to play with and I'll probably go for the vBulletin full version and set that up. RS Club here we come! :D

More will follow? Almost 100 people have registered since I joined, and it's only been about a week! I love this place, no more wading around looking for the occasional post that actually has something to do with my car! Kudos!

You gotta realize that statement was made 4 months ago! I think this is the oldest thread on the club, I just had to resurrect it.

Yeah, I saw how old it was before I posted, but all it took was that one little post at the other place, and the population is just booming!
