1750GTV 147Lusso

Idea I know I've asked before but...

... the 159 should be in a lounge with the Brera and the new Spider. They share the same technology, chassis and engines. It is completely illogical to have the 159 with the 156 and the Brera with the GTV. All that happens is that posts are duplicated between the lounges with people asking the same questions in one lounge which have either been covered or would be of interest elsewhere.
Thanks!

Re: I know I've asked before but...

Totally agree.

The 147 156 and GT should be together too.

I would imagine its not so easy to move all the threads though.

I don't think that's necessary. I think you just rejig the lounges (say Jan 1st) and then say "from now on". It's got to be done sometime and the longer it's left the more of a nonsense it becomes! What happens when the new little Alfa comes out? Is that going to go in with the Sud just because it's the same size?

As have I!! IMHO its the only logical option for grouping them in a technical forum.

Re: I know I've asked before but...

I agree, put the 159,Brera and new Spider in the same lounge. They are all similar and any problems will be in one place.

Re: I know I've asked before but...

It does make a lot of sense to have the same platform cars in the same lounges.

Yep, 159 Brera and new Spider in the same lounge, put the GT in with the 147 and 156. What about the GTV, keep it as its own separate lounge?

Re: I know I've asked before but...

Agree - makes more sense and would stop things like multiple Blue and Me threads, never mind other techie issues.
