    One of the best designed car forums on the web just got better. All we need now is an iphone app so its easier to obsess over on the go  :whistle:

    I spend 80% of my forum time on my phone anyway and it works very well.. No need for a app.

    I originally put them together because, at the time, Abarth UK didn't have a website that contained accurate pricing information.  As their site now includes a 'configurator' that's largely on the ball, duplicating the information here just adds more work for us when the information can be better found on their site now.

    Besides, most of the information can also be found in various stickies around the forum.  A few of them I need to edit to fix character conversion issues, but the information is all still there, somewhere. :thumb:

    It looks good chaps, but like those other old folks and their views on change I thought the old forum was tip top. Only my views and I know they don't mean Jack   ;D
    Now that I'm a grown up I drive a sensible grey 595 Competizione with grey leather sabelt seats and yellow brake calipers. It's jolly nice! It's got a name - ' Razzogrigio' Now with a custom S/S group N style exhaust, black Esseesse wheels and a GTT induction kit, all sitting on Eibach springs.

    Im sure everyone on here will agree with this statement (or at least I hope so)...

    To find a forum that supports and caters for your marquee that is free and not littered with randon advertising between each post is harder and harder to come by these days, so anything that keeps this site and community the way it is while freshening things up and keeping the group attractive to new and old members is a bonus :thumb:

    Keep up the great work chaps, your doing a great job and we wouldnt be hanging about if this was a bad forum/community/ group

    Looks nice, not so sure its wide enough, even on my netbook the blank side bars are significant, on my desktop machine with a decent resolution the waste of browser space looks a little ridiculous half the page is grey side bars, you are not the only site to do this, though other sites fill it with an image, I guess it is so it works fine on things like ipads with rubbish resolution in portrait. Personally prefer sites that dynamically adjust width to browser.

    Also the header, images and ads take up too much space, on the netbook the forum doesn't actually start until the bottom of the screen, using the arrow to compress screen by loosing image help but makes the site look poor, need a better header.

    The old site seemed to fit both sides of the resolution spectrum well.

    Also when you click the red abarthisthi thing top of teh forum the page looks broken as shown in attached.

    My tuppence.

    Looks clean, fresh and simple. Nice.
    Lovely size for the iPad.
    The top third banner, logo and menu takes up too much depth.
    I liked the old scorpion icon for the threads more than the new page icons.
