    It does seem strange that it's not included, i mean it's not like it's just come out. And looks shouldn't come into it. It's a Type R, unlike the S2000 which was never a Type R yet gets an inclusion. Very odd.

    Itís probably down to the fact thereís not a team of paid web designers updating this place every time thereís a new release.

    Indeed. I've asked the question, and it would be goodwill and spare time that will facilitate any change.

    I have enjoyed this forum over the years and found many posts very helpful. However, unfortunately it feels like this forum and ‘club’ has almost become somewhat semi-retired.

    There seem to be fewer and fewer posts and activity. Is there anything that can be done to drive activity back to the site, or where support can be given? I would happily Lend support!!!

    It seems that a lot (including myself) are using the likes of Facebook car Groups and Instagram, as it is more accessible and has up to date content.

    Perhaps a TRO Instagram page would be a great way to get new members to the forum?

    It is a shame as I this really is a great forum, and although I have not posted heavily over the years. I am proud to be a member of TRO!

    Facebook groups and the like don't have up to date content, just up to date drivel. TRO has a Facebook page and although it's got marginally better recently, it is full of people posting the same thing over and over again or asking dumb AF questions.

    Whereas if they just joined the forum they'd find that everything they need is already here. The only reason FB and Instagram get bigger figures is because the general populace is lazy. No one wants to research any more. They just want answers to the questions that were answered five days ago answered in a quickly accessible chat that then invariably gets lost in the chasm of the internet.

    I agree on the drivel part for sure, and there are so many repetitive posts on the Facebook pages, I am not sure how many times people need to ask what oil or tyres for the EP3.

    My comment wasn’t to compare or suggest that Facebook groups are better. The content and knowledge that is stored in old posts on here outweighs anything that is in the many opinionated replies on FB.

    I was just pointing out that the forum seems a little stagnant to me. Which is a shame! This is why I made a point of Instagram, it has minimal chat and comments but through members actively posting pictures of their cars on there, and then drive users to the forum for technical and knowledge sharing.

    My intention was not to cast any shade on TRO but just as someone who enjoys it that would like to see some more activity back on here.
