Autoguide.com is just a shell corporation for Martha Stewart who will soon become our supreme over lord. First she'll buy all the Auto websites then she will control the food supply and for the last stage she'll have us all working in her sweat shop constructing floral centerpieces. DON'T SELL THE WEB SITE, RESIST MARTHA!!!!

I like Pirate for the build threads. Outside of that I don't care for it. Lot of good things to learn there as long as you're prepared for the condescension that usually comes with the not knowing how to do something.

It is a shame when someone buys up small sites. Sure the owners get a little coin, but it really takes away the personal touches on the sites and the smaller sense of community. Thank you for keeping this site to yourself.

When I had the problem with mine the "Air bag light" was on all the time and the cruise control stopped working. Can't remember but maybe the horn didn't work as well.

I have been through this; it was discoweb.org (a Land Rover Discovery site back almost 10 years ago). It wasn't the big business buyout of the site, but the "changing of the guard" that caused it's ultimate demise.

Once upon a time it was a fantastic site with great members and great threads, very unique and much like XJTalk is now. That site had a core group of owners and leaders who made the rules, set the tone and gave the site a particular personality that was very appealing (sound familiar).

Over time, the core members dropped away and passed the site to others. The others tried but didn't have "that fire in the belly" that the founders had had. The site faded and now its all but dead. Now, when interest in building and wheeling that particular vehicle is so much higher that it ever was back then, there isn't a dedicated web resource for it that's kick ass like discoweb was.

So here's to you, dedicated XJTalk Central Committee Members. I hope you don't go astray for a good long time!
