Who cares. I want the Register/Forum to help me find parts and suppliers to keep my car on the road.

 

If it's relevant, it's fine by me.

I'm not sure that promoting commercial websites in this forum is acceptable. There are quite a few new dougal posts and imo it's bordering on spam.

Dougal is a great enthusiast, and a knowledgeable one in his specialist field.

 

Many of his opinions I'd agree with, although it does raise my hackles somewhat when folks try and present their personal opinions as fact . . . . .

 

In my book there's a good deal of difference between opinion and fact, especially when the opinion is based on generalised experience as opposed to detailed first-hand experience of the particular model of car and make of component in question.

 

The way I see it, Longstone tyres are a first rate supplier to those who can afford their limited range of high quality tyres for the TR range - many of our members are not sufficiently well-heeled as to even dream of fitting Michelins or Pirellis at a grand a set, and changing them every five years. £50/tyre and 10 years at 500-1000 miles/pa might be nearer the mark. Just my opinion, of course.

 

We have TRaditionally on this Forum welcomed the input of commercial specialists, . . . . . be they TR specialists, or component specialists, or tuning specialists for example. There is a fine line between generally helpful contribution and inappropriate self-promotion. In my view, some of Dougal's posts have strayed over that unwritten line of acceptability.

 

Hopefully that might be considered and a tad more care applied in future - as in most aspects, we're capable of policing ourselves without any heavy-handed moderation, and I'm sure Dougal can appreciate the point without taking umbrage ! :rolleyes:

 

Cheers

 

Alec
