I am a moderator on another forum which is not as popular as this one seems to be. If anyone would like to increase the amount of posts on mine & in turn shut the Beemer boys up for a short while at least!, then i can arrange for a decent discount on your next visit ! Follow the link.

If you tried a post like that on a certain American bulletin board, you would find your post censored and your IP address banned.
We take a different view, here.
I trust that you will be posting a reciprocal link from your board to this one, since we do not have the benefit of commercial funding.
This board has been financed by many of the contributors here (see names at top of first page).
What sort of decent discount can you arrange for all of them for allowing you to post against the rules of the board??

I have now returned the favour on my board ! As for discounts, i'll start the bidding at 10% which may increase, depending on the order. Many thanks again for letting me bend the rules.

Nice one Smudger Very generous offer of a ten percent discount but how does this discount work? Is it available to all? how do we claim it? is it available at all branches of Eurocarparts? is it callers only or mail order?
Sorry if this sounds like the third degree but for the benefit of the contributors of the board I'd just like to make things clear as it will be beneficial to eurocarparts and saabscene

The discount will only apply when ordering through mail order. When you place an order through the website or over the phone, mention my name & what site you come from with the salesman & i will confirm the discount with him. Most branches will not give a discount to retail customers but i seem to have been blessed with the capability to do this! I look forward to the first of many orders & questions!

Thank you Smudger for clearing that up
And while I remember Welcome to Saabscene

Just a quick thought. Do you have a list of all your forum members ? This way i called confirm that they come from your site & i can offer the discount. The list would only be used for this purpose & not for any other.

Yes, there is a list of members and No you can not have a copy I trust you understand that we can not pass on details of members of these forums to commercial organisations since we have not asked for their consent to do so.
Suggest you go with Plan A and people just need to quote "Saabscene" for their discount.
...and we'd better stop advertising for http://www.eurocarparts.com/ now

When they mention Saabscene, you could always ask them to confirm their Saabscene username, then look it up in the directory.
A list of members would soon go out of date, anyway, at the rate at which our membership is rising.

Welcome to the Board Smudger. . That is a very nice offer on the discount, I know that myself and my old man use yourselves quite a lot for parts.

This is just a thought after a few Vod's!!
I am listed with my local Euro Car Parts so that when I call up by phone, you ask for my postcode and then tell me who I am. (This facility might be useful in the morning )
Is it possible that I could tell said branch, my name on this board and if you then required confirmation that I am a regular here, I could send you a Private message in this site to do so?
Thereafter, you would then have my details on account and I would appreciate fully a hassle free 10% discount.
Oh and you'd save admin a shed load of strife
Just a thought

Some good ideas. I could possibly put a reference on the screens at Wembley so that when the salesman puts your account number up, it shows on the screen & the discount can be applied. Unfortunately i can't do this at branch level. Thanks for the replies.
