    Was thinking before that with all thew people getting more into car audio and all the questions going around at the moment
    It would be good to have a little section in here called ICE
    Set up like the Price checks is in the for sale bit
    Could have a few stickies in there

    Just a thought

    the talk audio forums are a good reason why not. I vote no as its unecessary and the volume of ICE threads is still fairly low

    There aren't that many ICE requests so I doubt it'll happen (also for the reason that mrk1@1 states) but if you hang on I'll ask the question in the Dons room for you.

    ICE jobs require quite specific knowledge to do right, so i think it would help to seperate.

    Don't see the point. We have lots of threads asking for advice on tyres, but it'd be silly to add a sub forum just for that purpose, as it would for ICE.

    having a different person would take a part of motors away.
    ok there are only a few people here who know what they are talking about, but the rest of us get to see that knowledge and learn something ourselves. by havign a separate forum most people wouldnt go in unless they needed to.

    But there could be a few stickies in there with basic guides to first time installs and things like that

    As for that tyres comment your just being stupid
    In car audio is a very big thing and i think it should have its own little section

    there might be something in the Motors sticky thread, not sure tho.

    if not then it could easily slot in there.

    The tyres comment is not being stupid, it's a very valid comparison.

    No ICE sub-section, sorry. We don't even have many threads about ICE.

    Good one Lopez :) I would miss the tips i just pick up from reading the odd ICE threads. If we move everything from motors then you just dilute it all too much with not many posts in any.

    How would you miss them ??

    You would go and look in the section

    I think theres more to installing audio equipment than tyres but hey it was only a suggestion that most agreed with

    As i often dont go out directly looking for ICE threads. When im bored i just notice a certain thread so i do read the odd ICE thread. Whereas i would not go into a different forum section to look for some.

    I count 6 "No" votes to 4 "Yes" as I type this so most people so far don't agree with you. Thanks for the suggestion but it isn't going to happen - the Dons of this forum have discussed and decided against it.

    Yep pointless imho, other topics are far more worthy of a split forum and even then i think its pointless anyways.

    I also agree that it should not be separated.
    The volume of post in the motors forum is fairly low, separating it into sub-sections would merely serve to reduce it further. The number of ICE posts is few and far between (maximum of one or two a day), is there really any need for a sub-forum where only one new thread is created a day?

    So no, most people don't want it. Now stop harping on, because you are not getting your ICE forum. For something that was only a suggestion you seem rather upset that people aren't flocking to agree with you.
