I have to say that at first I didn't see the point of closing the STi Information Forum. After a few days of having all of the threads here moved to the other forums I can see that there has been much greater participation from other NASIOC members in threads regarding the STi then ever before and their input and advice was unforunately lacking from the STi Information Forum.
I would occasionally browse the other forums on NASIOC before, but now I allways look through all of the forums and the experience of surfing this website has gotten surprisingly much better. This change is working great. If you have a question about DCCD, just post in the Tranny Forum, or if it's about wheels, you know where. There's an Impreza 02+ forums for other threads and a 2.5L engine forum for those questions. Have a question about the Brembos? Just post in the brakes section. I actually like the way discussions are separated into similar categories.
People have been protesting this change. I kept silent because I wanted to give it a try before passing judgement on this decision. Having the company of everyone on these forums reading our threads, instead of just mostly STi owners can only be a good thing. After all this is NASIOC.
