    Thoughts on a Gen 1 only Forum section?

    So, I have a gen 1, and I get it... at this point we are onto Gen 3, but almost all of the forums are so focused on Gen 2 that there is nothing intriguing for me to look at. If there was a section dedicated to Gen 1 performance, Wheels, Exterior etc... I think it would be a lot more engaging for those of us with Gen 1.

    Mods? Thoughts?

    thank you

    I think it would force a further division in our ranks, we should celebrate all things R8 where we are all equal, the Gen2 only should go, we should just specify our interest by MY.

    Plenty of other forums divide up by generation. A Gen 1 forum for the classic collectors would be better to start sooner than later.

    Honestly the General discussion board here is I’d say 80% Gen1. The Gen 2 has their own board for that specific Gen.
    No reason to divide it further.

    The new 2020 R8 out is still a Gen2 btw.
    Just the facelift version. Much like the 14/15 MY were for Gen1.

    Since there will be no more R8s after this, I’d say just leave it as is. Not enough traffic (even though this is the go to R8 site) to warrant a division.

    Just my .02.

    That said, if you want to just rename the Gen Discussion board Gen1, do that.

    Then let them be their own thing.

    No reason to have all 3 IMO.

    I just know that coming from the S4 side of things, there was a specific B8 forum that allowed me to discuss and search items only specific to the B8 and B8.5 S4. So if there were to be Gen1 + Facelift and Gen 2 + Facelift, this would make it a lot easier to search and be a part of.

    I would even go as far as to put a V8 and V10 in the Gen 1 sections. I would love nothing more than to read all of the V8 threads! However I will not be sifting through years of threads to do so.

    Just my humble opinion.

    Agreed. Makes sense.

    I think its a great idea! As I'm still pretty new to this site, I am still trying to navigate and figure my way around. Considering the search tool isn't the greatest or easiest I think it would work better when searching sections by Generation and or engine configuration. I keep coming across threads that are interesting but not relevant to my specific searches. My two cents.....
