For the benefit of all members these simple rules must be respected. Break these rules and you could be banned without warning.

  • No fighting, no racism, personal attacks, flaming, porn (of any kind - anything that is not safe for work), or sexism.
  • We want DSA to be a welcoming, collegial and positive place where you can chat and get help. If you haven't got something nice to say, move on. It's very very easy to click out of the thread. If you really can't take it, use PM, or ignore the person. Easy.
  • Don't spam useless posts. This includes comments like "GLWS" and "hahahaha". You know exactly what this means, so don't do it.
  • Check your English - no-one wants to read through incomprehensible dribble.


We've had an extremely good track record organising JDM meets and DS meets in the last 4 years. The Police have been largely on our side, and we've had an understanding with them that we'd keep things under control, and they wouldn't go nuts with the defect books. To be able to keep it this way, it is important that YOU and YOUR FRIENDS follow the CONDITIONS OF ATTENDANCE:
  • - YOU are responsible for the guys you bring to the meet, and hang with. If they act like idiots, we will find out who it was. In addition, we will be recording number plates for both insurance and policing purposes.
  • - THROW RUBBISH IN THE BIN. There are bins - use them. If they're full, just chuck it in your car and throw it out next time you fill up.
  • - Don't do skids, laps, rev engine, be antisocial in any way.
  • - Plates will be recorded and forwarded to the cops, depending on how much of a dickhead you are. Dropping skids will definitely qualify for 13HOON.


  • Caveat Emptor - buyer beware! It's up to you to make sure you don't get fleeced, so do your research into both the stuff you're buying as well as the seller.
  • You may only bump your thread once every 3 days.
  • You must post a price. There are to be no Expressions of Interest (EOI) or Make an offer.
  • No posting on the behalf of others.
