Not sure what happened but I made a post yesterday but I can not find it anywhere. I have looked in my profile and it shows no post. Did I violate something to have my post deleted? Just want to make sure I don't do it again. Please help me understand.

Black Molly, sometimes when you've been a member for almost three years and only have two posts, the administrators will delete your threads for shits and giggles. They have a strange sense of humor. Good luck.

The post was about my cats going bad and oem and billy boats high flow cats are out of stock until March. Was looking for another brand that was plug and play. I did not want to delete or use a tune. Someone made a suggestion about a motorsport facility in South Carolina but I forgot the name.

The post became about buying/selling. That is probably lead to the deletion.

If you implied you want to buy cats, then that constitutes a Want to buy thread, right?

Well...yes...kind of...wanting to buy some high flow cats and looking for suggestion from people's experience. I thought that is kind of the premise behind forums is for suggestion to problems that others may have had in the past? I would also think it would be okay if someone suggest a place to buy used ones...am I missing something? Might also help if that person that deletes the thread give the op a message letting them know what was wrong with the thread and maybe give them a chance to correct it?

Hmm

Let’s see, I volunteer here, not getting any of the money you’ve spent on annual membership, and I’m dealing with some Covid symptoms, and I read your thread, and when it went from asking what to do to implying you want to perhaps buy someone’s used cats, I have to…

Nevermind. I’m going to have to remove this thread as well because it is turning into a conversation about you wanting used cats, and you don’t meet the criteria to have such a thread.

You have your answer as to why your thread was deleted, right?

Mystery solved.

Totally understand your point of view but so many scammers come in and try to skirt the rules about buying and selling that mods, I'm not one, will yank it.

It is hard because maybe a member has OEM cats out there sitting around.

I'd try the FB groups and see if someone has any, from when they went cat less

Steve, why not simply advise the OP to post and simply ask for advice
on what Cats would be the best for his application?

Thank you for letting me know and I hope you get to feeling better. As for not posting much I typically just come on here for research. I have not done much to my v due to it being a limited production (1 od 80 in usa. 2013 silver frost coupe). My original post was just about buying from a vendor and it wondered into buying used cats. To be honest I had not even thought about that angle. I truly do not mean any disrespect and hope it was not taken that way. Fully aware of scammers out there. Just a man not wanting to wait three months to get his car fixed and looking for alternatives.

Let’s remove this thread and if you want to start a new one, knowing the rules and how not to violate them, then that’s probably the best option.

Fwiw, I wouldn’t get so hung up on the rarity of the car, just enjoy it.

I’m sure my combo is pretty rare, having a solid roof, but not once did that factor into anything other than how hard I searched and how hard it would be to find another, though I would get a manual the next time.

In for pics of Silver Frost coupe. Don't make me google it. I get sidetracked easily. It starts out innocent enough and in three minutes I go from silver frost coupe to two girls and a sawzall.
