to give the 4.2 coupe/spyder owners their own section on this board. The "modern Maserati" is clearly the GT/GTS (no disresect to QP owners).

While they're all using essentially the same engines, wheels, suspension etc., isn't it worth keeping them together?

(although personally I am not too interested in reading about the GranTurismo)

i own both QP and spyder, and very much interested in the GT, so i much rather this stays as one forum.

I think the Modern board gets clogged with too much GT stuff anyway. But I don't think GT is "Modern". Should be "Modern" and "GT"

To my mind "modern" Maserati is everything since Maserati returned to the US - the biturbo and earlier years are almost a completely different car company (arguably, I suppose it was a different company). I see the differences between the 4200 and the GT as evolutionary - a fair amount of what is learned about one model can be applied to the other (perhaps not specific mechanical fixes, but general experiences). The differences between all of the recent models and what came before is pretty fundamental - I think the concerns of someone restoring a Bora are pretty different from someone trying out a new exhaust on their coupe/GS/GT.

But the main reason I wouldn't break it up is that on this forum you have a pretty lively discussion. I've seen way too many online forums that are divided up into tiny single model or submodel groups where you get one post every 5 months, and everyone loses interest.

I agree with this comment. There aren't that many maserati's to compete in the modern category in any case and I believe that owners genuinely want to see posts on the other models as well without having to sort and subscribe and click through the seperate forums.

I've seen sites do this in the past and it reduces the overall number of posts and increases the time it takes to go through them. I certainly understand the logic of the request but believe that it's better to leave it "as is" for now.

Just from one point of view, I wouldn't even notice. All I do is click the new posts button every day.

I agree there are not a lot of maserati owners and having everyone included makes the discussions a lot more informative.

Personally, I ignore the different boards and hit the 'new posts' link every time I visit, looking for new threads in all areas. I wouldn't notice either as someone mentioned earlier....

Tuff call. I too hit the New Posts link almost always. As things grow and progress I might make a tweak, it's hard to say but the time to do so might be coming since some are mentioning it.
