Thumbs up "General Discussion"

Hi guys,
i thought to create this thread to prevent going off-topic in other threads.

Cheers

Okay regarding why we cant have an active thread.

i think we can, but we need stronger topics. we also need more people who will and can provide enough detailed information.

And dont forget we are in the ME forum so they should all be somewhat related to the middle east.

putting something like magna v corsa in ME is wrong to start with as its not ME related. Secondly there are too many available threads out there alreadywhich provide all the information so the others wont post anyway.

we need moer topics along the lines of local su[ppliers for mods/custome mods available in the ME/places to tune/notification of local groups and gatherings/local dealer issues (one of the best and active threads here cause its local related (even though it died now))
you get my point?

unless we create more traffic and provide more specific points then we cant really comment.


if i were to re-do that thread i would have it along the lines of:

magna vs corsa regarding sound levels, passing inspection, where to install, where to supply.

thats way you have lots of things in one thread to keep you on topic.

Agree totally...

In the case of a weak or unsupportive topic, then it should be closed rather than dragging it to an endless cycle... it kinda ruins the C5 thread pattern.

Hey guys... how about a sticky thread that outlines the major differences between GCC export spec camaros and the US ones like:

1) KPH Speedo
2) 6-CD Changer
3) No OnStar/Phone bluetooth
4) Arabic Labels etc.

I think this thread can really be useful for people complaining about stuff in the camaro that isn't supposed to be there!

i think thats not deserving as sticky..

its not like any of those are major.

I dont think people really care about stickers. and in my car i push a button and change it from mph to kmh

and we dont have rights to delete threads. we would need to be a mod/admin i think.

@AlSuwaidi.. YES! We need a local (ME-based) moderator for this subforum - if there aren't any! Will the current moderator please stand up!

i dont think they will give admin to any of us

talk to them if you want..

just ignore threads which die... how many dead threads are there in the main and no1 deletes them.

you would need a lot of time to go through dead ones .. and you never know when one might pick up again... ive seen it happen

Thanks Shabab for the thread you rock.

Well I hear so much fuzz about Gulf specs and U.S specs.

Suhail my Camaro is Canadian specs, and according to the manual the only different is your dash board. Instead of Miles, they use KM and instead of Gallons they use Litres.

In addition to that you can not shut the speed alert. I have blue tooth and Onstar in my car, but never tried to activiate them simply because I have a habbit not to use mobile while driving.

if you read my whole post i said we should post like that but be more specific. like if you have done a mod, then write about it. where you got it, how much, installation, etc...

not just "corsa vs magna", "whats best?"

that is a useless thread and is bound to die. we have to make it relevant to GCC

Anwro, we are only few members who activiate this section anyway. So at least we can get to know each other and share useful infromation.

Camaro_h, Al Suwaidi and myself are on to have this thread so we dont end up with 100 thread and no replies !!

It is better that we gather in one thread.

Dont be a hater Anwro. Im not organizing by mood. Im promoting more efficient topics that we can actually discuss.

if it was like the 'Arabian forums' (which im guessing you mean bad forums) wouldnt be here... I only join forums where there is good, clean, respectful topics that people can discuss.

btw excellent way to support your fellow Arabs by dissing them.


if your going to post bullshit expect bullshit.

Im trying to move away from that, guess you just dont see it.

Camaro_h, this is your thread man and Al Suwaidi didnt say something wrong. He was only suggesting not forcing his views.

Anwaro: if you want to join, welcome, otherwise please find a thread that suits your interests and stop accusing Al Suwaidi of controling the thread because you know that he didnt.

Now can we start guys?

You must be kidding Al Suwaidi,

Camaro is one big eye catcher. When I recieved it I fell in a problem with people chasing me on the roads, at work, and Al Tamah Al Kobrah at home . I polish the car every weekend, and yet I can see the finger prints on my windows every day.

I have a body kit and a grille that I bought from Carid since February but didnt install it until today because I fear that it will bring me more troubles with people and dear policemen.

As for my accident man, I have nothing to do with it .

I was crashed, he was jailed, and I was paid. But I miss my baby .
