Re: Lancia & Alfa Romeo sections

FiatForum.com not LanciaForums.com or AlfaRomeoForums.com!!!
It would kind of defeat the object having Lancia cars and Alfa car sections when this place is about modding and maintenance for Fiats

Re: Lancia & Alfa Romeo sections

There are very good Alfa and Lancia forums out there - many of us are members of them as well as here.

http://www.alfaowner.com/

Lancias are a little more difficult to find given their quiet status in the UK.. but this thread may help

Re: Lancia & Alfa Romeo sections

I personally agree with having these two section's would be a good idea but if the boss wants too keep it purely Fiat then so be it.
I dont mind looking after the 2 sections if they were to materialise.

Make that 5 sections. If you include Lancia and AR, then you'd have to include FIAT's other vehicle subsiduaries; Maserati, Ferrari and Iveco. Then what about including FIAT's past collaborations?

With the possible exception of Iveco (because I'm not sure if there is an Iveco only forum) the other marques are well supported elsewhere on the internet.

I don't think it's a worthwhile or workable idea. They wouldn't get the traffic either. This is why there is a non-FIAT section; we probably get as much traffic about Lancia or AR cars than any other manufacturer, i.e. not a lot. Not enough to warrant a separate section.

There's more than enough forum sections as it is IMO.

Can be covered by each model in the existing forums, as it is now. I see no real reason to change that.

Re: Lancia & Alfa Romeo sections

IMO Lancia and Alfa are the more popular of all that are listed and i have spoken to many people people with said cars who would like to come and show them off to people who would appreciate them. Other than owners of same make of model.
A lot of people that i speak too with Lancias are very surprised that i even know what a Delta Integrale is and would be tempted by FF but a lack of specific forum probably holds them back.
I personally love Lancia/Alfa and would like to hob knob with owners on this forum. If it doesnt attract many people then it wont be much work to keep organised.
