    Default Technical advise

    Over the past few weeks Iíve seen a lot of posts asking for help and parts advise but not giving a description of the vehicle ie just saying 206 is not enough.
    Some people on here give great advice and are very helpful but nothing is more frustrating than having to ask what year what engine etc ( and sometimes not getting a response) And for some of us with a bit higher knowledge base a vin would be great donít forget nobody can do anything with your vin and it is stamped on the windscreen of most cars for the world to see.
    This below is a perfect example of a good description

    I have a 2011 308 Sportium HDI Auto, with the RHR motor. It has done 74,000 KM's.

    With that info you will get your answer within a few replies or at least wonít have to waste time or get frustrated with standard replies.

    Iím not trying to be rude but I do like helping the people on this forum but find having to go back and forth a bit tiring.

    I think this could be made a sticky. . .

    It's not just applicable to the modern cars but also our classics. At the very least make, model, year and location - information that could have offers of help or parts to get you up and running.

    Cheers

    The Dťesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Dťesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    Youíre off a little there it well could be a RHH but a bunch of RHR early 2010 cars had sportium spec and sold as 2011 compliance nevertheless it was take as a example copied from a post early that week.
