    I tried clicking on the "Resend Validation" at the top again - this time it worked! I received an email that allowed me to complete the process. Now my status has gone from Validating to Member. There are people with post counts of 0 and 1 that have Member status, while I was still Validating after 32 posts - so I would say it does not change with post count.

    Why does it say "Validating" under my profile picture on all my posts? I suspected it was related to the "Resend Validation" button at the top of the web page so I tried that - after clicking "Search and Send" it responds with "Your revalidation request was successful A revalidation email has been sent to the registered address for that member. Please check your email within the next few minutes - including any 'junk mail' or 'spam' folders you may have." .... but I receive nothing in my email. I did check that my email address was correct in My Settings (and I do receive other email notifications from ozrenaultsport). This suggests something is not working correctly.

    I bought a new 182!

    Thanks for the welcomes. It is Artic Blue with the charcoal wheels that come with the Cup pack, built in 2005, but only 54000km. As for piccies, I assume only links to photos can be added, not the actual photos. That limits me to the front photo from the carsales ad: http://www.carsales.com.au/private/details/Renault-Clio-2005/SSE-AD-2723514/?Cr=1&sdmvc=1 The 205GTI is a 1992 (red) with improved engine, 15x7 OZ Ultraleggeras, Toyo R888 tyres, Quaife diff, Bilsteins, larger front brakes with RX7 4pot calipers, etc. It was my regular car for about 14 years (until a month ago) but did a few sprints and hillclimbs some years back. It had aircon until 2 years ago. I did say the Clio has luxury! My best bet for offloading the Pug is probably via aussiefrogs.

    I bought a new 182!

    A few weeks ago I bought a low km as-new Clio 182 from its fastidious original owner. It is now garaged in Gippsland, 170km east of Melbourne. It replaces my aging Pug 205GTI. Oh the luxury! This appears to be a great forum, lots of info. As I expect to have this car for many years (like the 205) I will be lurking around here for a very long time. - Rick
