Re: other members motors

I think your bug is gorgeous, although if I was gonna buy one it would be black with tinted windows, the only way to make a bug into a guys car IMO

On a lower budget I would buy a bug in front of most cars, they are classy and will look good for as long as they run.

See we really need this section guys.

Please

Re: other members motors

I noticed yesterday that on another forum they had a section that that was titled :

General Motoring chat and questions

Surely this is not gonna encourage riff raff


I am already starting to feel out of place on the forum now, a bit of an outcast so to speak. If I wanna talk about anything I just latch onto my thread in members motors, it just don't feel right no more

Re: other members motors

C'mon guys is this thread just gonna keep going round in circles or getting fobbed off with comments from Dave It'd be good to have an answer one way or the other or at least an indication if it's being discussed

There is nothing stopping you from posting about it in the Leisure Lounge. If we had enough posts that it started getting full of other cars then a section might be needed. We don't though which is why we don't currently need a section just for non-fiats.

We need to draw a line somewhere. Many of us own 2 or more cars where some or all of them are not Fiat. If we all posted about them then where does that leave the FIAT part of the forum?

p.s. the Beetle is ugly... but then so is the Multipla

Yeah but you just gave the exact reason why we need one. People don't post in the LL about it because it's not the place to do it.

Loads of forums have a section to discuss other manufacturers. They have pretty much the same rules as the fiat forum about slating each others car makes and people appreciate that. It's a mutual understanding and it encourages a none bias attitude from all members. Surely that has to be good for the forum overall. To show that's it's not going to allow slagging off of peoples cars because the main area is dedicated to one manufacturer. It shows a real maturity in the attitude of the forum.
Without that section it just highlights a community that won't accept outsiders and that's not politically correct

This forum has been losing members when they change motors is that really what you want, I thought this place prided itself on friendship not just Fiat. Fiat have failed to move it's dealers with the times please don't let that happen to the forum too.

Re: other members motors

You make a fair point. an Ex-Fiat or 'Dark Side' forum might not be too bad. Just as long as anyone posting in their realises they are making themselves a target... Oh and Mondeo's and Micras are banned.
