Hi, Thank you for letting me join this forum. 

 

After a year or so of planning I'm aiming to buy a VX in 2022. 

 

I've looked at a red turbo that's local to me, though not inspected it properly yet. There isn't a lot of recent history with the car and when I HPI'd it it came up as 2 owners in last  4 months (including present seller) which understandably is ringing a lot of alarm bells.

 

Does anyone in this group know this car and know it's history?

 

Many Thanks

I wish this wasn't the case :(

 

This forum was so much more organised and useful than f*ckbook

Couldn't agree more, the Ducati forum I use is fantastic and continues to be well contributed

So what happens on facefart if someone asks a question, do they get given a link to a topic/post on this site - that would seem self defeating.

 

Also as I write this -

 

201 users are online (in the past 15 minutes)

2 members, 198 guests, 1 anonymous users

 

There are still a lot of non posters who use this site (I'm the anonymous user  :) ).

The desire of many to use Fu*"book over a well structured forum defeats my understanding

Were there really 198 guests on the site? Wonder what they were doing?

Looks like a lot of them are searching ... because they can't find anything on FB.
