    Glad to hear that mate.
    I had a URL to the Fueltopia Site of my Profile for my car, Similar to CarDomain.
    The Admin 'TrailDust' even told me which URL is acceptable and then they banned me.
    Oh well thier loss as I was not on there to advertise but to share my knowlage with Toyota enthusiasts.
    I feel very Welcome here
    Thanks All

    Yeah, screw that over-moderated place TN. I can't believe they banned you. We all have links to cardomain in our sigs, why would yours be any different. Are you sure that's the reason?

    It's cause we're private owned. Places like ToyotaNation, Benzworld, etc are often looked at by the dealer.

    What does that have to do with it?
    All I'm saying is when dumb people go to dealerships to buy stuff without part numbers or have a certain issue dealerships search on their respected forums.

    Oh, I meant that if the mods had a problem with his link to a different pic site, than they should have a problem advertising people to buy Ford vehicles lol.

    I still do not see how the link of my profile on Fueltopia is any different to that of a CarDomain link.Even the owner of Fueltopia feels the same way.

    Don't stress about it dude. You're banned, no need to figure out how they justify it. I've never known anyone to get banned from here, and there's a lot of questionable behavior lol. Just stay here and have some fun. We don't have a noob everyday asking how to disable the DRLs on his car, or why his car burns oil and he can't figure out why. It's a lot more relaxed.

    I have added my Sig
    Just as it would appear on TN.
    Thanks you for all the comments and making me fell Welcome as I think I am the only one from South Africa on here.
    If Im not - please let me know.
    I'm on like 20 odd forums ranging from the various Jap cars to the main VAG related club forums.
    First time I have been banned due to a situation like this, and that after the discussion in public threads.
    Have been asked from a forum once not to have an external link of any kind, but was PM'ed by Admin.

    So enjoy Life, you only have one chance and I have bigger problems to sort out like being retrenched.
    and that is why I try and live by my Sig.

    lol, this definitely sounds like new TN members..... so annoying for a regular member! That's why I love this place, because you can say what you like to have fun.

    I just clicked on your link, and for some reason it is blocked at work and I get the "Big Brother is watching" you screen lol. Why would it be blocked? Is it like Facebook (also blocked)?

    OH, OK
    Just asking as I cannot see TN anymore. cant even read stuff.
    @ Gold: You had two sets of lights. The one I know you can buy with the LED. the second set looks like it could fit if I change the bumper...I know the 1st set is much longer than the ones I have now and wanted to get them fitted.
