Should BA pics be included in the AU thread?

There are a couple of group threads in the Showroom:
EA-ED
EF-EL
AU, etc

Now, some say the BA is an all new model, while some say (me included) it is just the natural progression of the AU. So the question is, should we change the name of the AU thread from "AU Pics - Show 'em how good an AU can look" to "Post your AU & BA pics here".

Personally, I don't have a problem combining them, though the AU thread was started to show people that the ugly duckling can actually be a good looking swan! The BA is just a face lifted AU in my opinion. I guess the flip side is that people who own a BA may have no interest in posting pics with the "ugly" cousin (not that I think any of the cars in the AU thread are ugly).

BTW - this is not really a matter of "allowing" - it's more a question of etiquette.

Re: Should BA pics be included in the AU thread?

why not just start a new thread?

or is this just an attempt to try make the AU thread as big as possible.

AU and BA are different enough to have them seperate.

AU lasted as long as the EF-EL did so its not like there is a shortage of AU's.

Re: Should BA pics be included in the AU thread?

Well I stopped looking at the AU thread as it was getting too big and is a pain to view on dialup.

I preferred it before everyone thought it was a good idea to bundle a billion people's cars into one thread - but that's my opinion.

Re: Should BA pics be included in the AU thread?

people should post a single thread for THEIR car(s) so its easier to find their car
and also post it in a big collection of cars like the said AU one.
it makes it FAR easier when u want ideas from other's cars if they're all in 1 thread, but having them seperate makes it nicer for those who don't care any other car then the one they're searching for.
