Default AS Performance advertising

Hi just a quick note to say we will no longer be officially advertising on SN (mainly due to the decline and therefore value for money of forum advertising) and therefore the AS Performance user name will cease to be able to be accessed.............
please contact the office direct for any queries / orders

having been established for over 20years we will still continue in the "real world" simply we wont be able to respond on here

That's a shame. Sad times.

Will you still be on here under a private user name?

That’s a real shame. Always found the informative posts very valuable. It has really put the business on the map for me.

AS have always been so helpful in the past, but understand a sign of the times.tony

Simple thing is Alyn is a proven provider of quality goods at a quality price with great service and advice why go anywhere else it doesn't matter to me personally that he is stopping advertising on here his number is in my phone and when goods are ordered they are at my door the next day what more can you ask for period.

I get all my stuff same day if it's in stock, which it usually is.

Alyn, it matters not that you won't be advertising on here, you weren't when I got my car 13 years ago. People will always still recommend you, like they did then. Word of mouth is a more powerful advert, than paying any fee, IMHO.

Forums are dying everywhere still look at scooby net every week but very little new information
loosing photobucket as it’s simplicity was the death for many posts as it so easy to post on Facebook now
facebook isn’t as good for project threads and information disappears down to quickly which we find on a couple of car groups I’m in

Facebook advertising is massive now and very cheap
I have 10k followers and 20 messages a night for the business I run
I used to spend 20k + advertising 20 years ago now £3 boosts an avert

Alan is well established and respected in the community so why continue supported scooby net

"Alyn" was on here long before AS Performance started advertising and always has been.............

this is purely a business decision that the £500+ per year fee is simply not justified given the falling membership

we always did and continue to supply good quality goods & services for good value for money and 'deal' pricing / 0191-4103770

Itís bloody annoying. I canít stand using the Facebook Groups because theyíre chock full of uneducated retards that canít even spell their own name properly.

This place has a vast amount of info stored in threads over the last 20 years. Just hope the switch isnít flicked to the off position at some point.

I'm not using facebook and will do whatever I can to keep my favourite forums alive and hope others will too. But I fully understand the decision when it costs that much.

Yeah, hopefully thereíll be options if it comes to that. When you look back on old threads, itís an absolute gold mine of info from legends of the Impreza scene... some of whom are no longer with us and some that just disappeared without trace

Trade or private? About £12 private. Trade varies depends if you just want a trade account or advertising aswell. Which means your company gets advertised on all the forums owned by the company.

Sad but true.

Quite the opposite actually, the trend will find enthusiasts moving back to forums due to the quality of content. User groups on facebook have all sorts of riffraff more and more people are heading back to the forums.

I am no longer on Facebook but use twitter and Instagram. Posts get so lost I honestly don’t know how they can compete with forums. Hopefully it will phase out and the forums will return. Plenty of good info stored on here

I still find Scoobynet very useful.
It's great for problem tracing and still helpful for getting people's experiences and opinion and tips.
Hope it's going to be around for a bit longer.

I still find it useful aswell. So be honest there use to be a lot of trolls on here, but they've all gone now which is good. Use to get them on all the time.

Lost a lot of breakers, only Matty left now. Use to have Darren, poor customer service but cheap parts.
