C'mon guys, cough up some cash.

Andrew is running this site at a loss. We all enjoy it and get some good info and entertainment out of it. A subscription to a magazine will cost you more than what Andrew is asking for something you can click on anytime you want. Click on this http://www.ferrariforum.com/membership.php
and pay Andrew for all the hard work he has given to support a great international community of Ferrari enthusiasts!

C'mon, he's looking for $18 per year. That is 5 cents per day to support the site. I signed up for 3 years. Let's help Andrew put the Ferrari Forum back in the black.

It is not only the fact that you help Andrew covering the costs of running this site, but you will get access to all (and some exclusive for members) articles written for this site. You will get your own private part on the site where you can post pics etc. 18 dollars each year isn't that much...

You can set up a paypal account with your credit card. It's free, easy and secure. https://www.paypal.com/ You can pay in any currency and paypal will convert it without charge.

That's international right? That would cost me 15 dollars in transfer costs. No offence... but I only use the Forum. I just want to make fun of Pete

Wow, looks like I found my new marketing strategy: complain. Thanks for all the support. In the long-run the greatest good for all is for everyone to spread the word about the site. In my eyes this (telling owners/dealers/mechanics...etc) is better than buying a membership.

Sounds crazy, more users means more cost, but more eyeballs means more advertisers at a higher rate to boot. Let them support the site to gain business and then I can lower the price of membership so it is so cheap it is like giving it away.

I already offer far more to the members than "the other" Ferrari site and quality isn't even worth comparing, its like comparing Ferrari (here) with Yugo (there) and I would be happy to offer it at an even lower rate than now.

Well, you've heard the saying, "The squeaky wheel gets the grease."

Everyone loves the site and many don't appreciate the work that goes into it.

3 years ago you probably didn't think you'd ever be one of the people posting a complaint. :green:

no, you transfer it to an account in amsterdam, so no transfer costs. You can just transfer an x amount to it, and have that in your paypal account. And like Pete said, paypal does not charge for value conversion.

Yugo being the superior party here. Fabulous cars. GREAT styling, good price-performance index, lots of room, comfortable.

Don't knock the Yugo... Even Bruce Willis drove it in "Die Hard 3: Die hard with a vengeance" and I swear to god that he loved it !!!

One other way that you can help support Andrew & Ferrari Forum is to visit the additional "Sports Car" Forums that have recently been set up. The links are at the bottom of this page.
