You've stumbled upon one of the biggest problems with Swedespeed.

There are 20 subforums for FWD models, but there is not enough activity here to necessitate that much division. They need to be merged.

For example, the 20 model sub-forums could be merged into 10 Platform-based forums (or 8 if you merge the Polestar and R forums into P3/P2 respectively):

SPA Platform - S90 & V90 (2016 - ), XC90 (2016 - )
Global C Platform - V40/V40XC (2013+)
P3 Platform - S60, S60CC & V60, V60CC (2011+), XC60 (2010 - ), V70 & XC70 (2008 - ), S80 (2007-Current)
subforum - Polestar Model Forum (2015+ )
P2 Platform - S60 (2001-2010), V70 & V70XC & XC70 (2001-2007), S80 (1998-2006), XC90 (2003-2014)
subforum - R Forum (2004-2007)
P1 Platform = C30 (2007-2013), S40 & V50 (2005-2012), C70 (2006-2013)
P80 Platform - S70, V70 & V70XC (1998-2000), C70 (1998-2004), 850 (1993-1997)
Nedcar Platform - S40 & V40 (1995-2004)
4x0 Platform - 440, 460 & 480 (1985-1996)

This would have several advantages:
* Help people get help for their cars, since cars that share the same platforms tend to be about the same age, and have the same engines, transmissions, maintenance, problems, etc.
* Future-proof the forums, so that the list doesn't keep growing with every new model - there will be more SPA and Global C cars, so the list will keep growing...
* Help keep the forums active. There are too many forums to check them all individually, even if the person may have knowledge that would help.

Yeah, seems like just 4 or 5 of us .. and I'm brand new lol. I cross post a lot of stuff the S60 forum to get more eyeballs.

The above way of doing things just makes way more sense IMO. Because mechanically the P2 cars are all pretty similar.
I go to the S60 forum sometimes as well now. But there's still stuff unique to the S80 that definitely gets overlooked due to the small size of our community here.
