Is this the worlds worst forum???

Guys,

Having since becoming a member of Fiat Coupe Club UK - fccuk.org I have come to a startling realization that AO is god damn amazing in comparison.

Ironically, in being so fantastic, AO makes me look at all the other car site forums as complete and utter dross, making AO AWFUL because I shall forever be looking back at this place and wondering why other forums aren't like it,

Maybe I should have bought a GTV V6 instead?

Keep up the good work team!!!!

Darren

Re: Is this the worlds worst forum???

I have been on there a few times, especially when I owned my coupe. For some reason my original username stopped working, so I had to re register.

There are a few knowlegeable people on there, but on the whole it doesn't have the same atmosphere as AO.
Any performance car when it falls into a particular price bracket can attract the wrong type of owner, and it seems some of them have found their way onto FCCUK. It was the same with the Nissan 200SX forum.

I didn't mean you were the wrong type of owner though Darren..

I am soon to be faced with the exact same choice. I can't make my mind up either, it will probably come down to whats around at the right price and condition at the time. Or which way the wind is blowing..

Yes I think you have it exactly here. My son tells me the VX220 forum has gone the same way for the same reason.

The thing is, its very annoying as it ruins the cars image even though there is nothing wrong with the car itself.

There's no "maybe" about it.

*does Jedi mind trick*

Sell the Coupe and get a V6, you won't regret it.

Re: Is this the worlds worst forum???

you want to go on the Bravo section of the Fiat forums, lots of young kids talking rubbish most of the time. Jug off here has to spend ages correcting them all and they still don't listen to him. Still, they have to learn somewhere

God only knows why they stopped making the Fiat Coupe. having owned both I'd have a Coupe over an Alfa Spider any day.

Hang on ... I guess I'm the wrong sort of owner then. C'est la guerre.

Re: Is this the worlds worst forum???

I would like to give a thumbs up to AO Forum. The discussions are helpful/friendly and, well it just comes across as being friendly. Can't say the same about the 156 Forum, only posted a couple of times and already I feel the frozen wastelands and the tumbleweed blowing over the frozen tundra. A cold, hard penetrating frost that can only be bred from cynicism. Has the 156 Forum gone the same way as other Forums mentioned above????
