Sigh. Okay, fine, for one specific measured shock the compression rate looks about the same. However, the current discussion is about adjustment settings, and Konis are not adjustable for compression, only rebound. And those plotted rebound data look pretty much like the Koni graph.
So, no, the softest settings are not similar, and the yellows start out ~30% stiffer than the reds.
Alfanut, Classic Alfa have a lot of experience and can likely recommend a setting. Usually starting at full soft on Konis is a good idea. You don't mention your car, but on my 115 when I upgraded to stiffer springs I went halfway on the reds, which would put them about at the starting point for yellows. This seems to work well for road use.
