The short section in the end of a review with a short summary of the other cars in that segment is a very good idea too and does fulfill that need for comparisons to some extent.
Maybe comparing the cars in features etc wherein drop-down lists can be provided of cars by manufacturers/make/model etc and then one can compare various parameters of the cars as given by their websites. Of course someone would have to go through the motions of feeding humongous amount of data in the first place (not to mention keeping it updated too- no small task by any means). I found a good example on Zigwheels though it lacked some details.

Hi I got the following mail today in my inbox in connection with the classified add I have put up on the Forum for my Honda city. This looks like some kind of scam to me. So just posting it here to make sure none of the other members fall into this
I also received it.. Posted in on my FB wall and helped few of my friends find soul-mates




Coming back to the main discussion.. Since Lumia (Windows Phone) is gaining popularity and Windows 8 UI (old name Metro) will be out soon, why not have TBHP site in new UI style ?

We'll definitely have something like this in the future. Can't put a date on it though...

Not sure what you mean here? A website in the 'Metro' theme? Do you have some examples?

Suggestion 1:

When I go to usercp, All my subscribed threads has a quicklink to the pages of that particular threas after its title.
I noticed that all are looking like (1 2 3 4 5 6 7 ... Last Page)

I thought it would be more helpful if it could give links to the last pages.
The last page is already available, but if we could include the last 3 pages, it gives more information to the user about the total length of the thread

I've tried to explain the same in the picture below with an MSpaint job.

Mods, if you find this suggestion useful, please have a look at the feasibility of this option

Suggestion 2:

When I go to usercp, I see the list of new subscribed threads and the cloumns are Thread/Thread Starter, Last Post, Replies and Views. Example shown in the below screenshot

Suggestions for Team-BHP from Team-BHPians-1.jpg

If I want to look at a subscribed thread in the second page, I go and press the View All Subscribed Threads
If I see here, the colums are Thread/Thread Starter, Last Post and Notification. Example shown in the below screenshot

Suggestions for Team-BHP from Team-BHPians-3.jpg

The Replies and Views columns are not presnt in this view.
I find those 2 columns very useful and use it quite often.

I know that I can go to its forum, and find this information (in the picture above, If I go to Indian Car Scene forum, I can get this info).
But searching for this info for an old thread is quite a task when for example if I know that I have it in the second page of my subscribed threads list

Can the Replies and Views columns be added here aswell?

Current page is highlighted in a very subtle way in silver theme. It is better in other themes.
I don't want to change to other theme just for this issue.

It will be great if the highlighting can be more contrasting.

^ Why not just read the page number as seen in the left hand side of the screenshot you posted where it says Page 318 of 319?

On that topic, Next and Previous is the easiest way of navigating multiple pages, especially on busy forums.

Any chance of adding them to the page display/selector?

It takes that second more to read the page number and trace where the number is. I think more contrast will be better.

Just in case anybody didn't know already...

If you are looking for the total length of the thread, hover your mouse over the "Last Page" and the html link to the last page should appear on the bottom of most browsers (no idea on mobiles, though), which reveals the page number towards the last part.

Quite a few new cars have been launched in last 3-4 years. Any plans of updating the picture-pool with the following?

Sorry, but this seems to have fallen through the cracks. Please check if it is missed or planned for any specific release.

Do we have a dedicated thread which gives information about the upcoming official reviews? Right now I'm left guessing if at all there is one for a particular make especially when there are a slew of launches (there is thin line between anticipation and frustration - me thinks ).

For the official reviews of cars, mods , could we have some testing done around acceleration figures, brake performance ( stopping distances with/without ABS variants ) also shared in the reviews ?

thanks

Hmmm.. I tend to agree with the posted pictures that the originality of the car's shape and size gets messed up by close ups. In the same breath, allow me to appreciate putting long shots of the reviewed cars alongside its closest competitors, as we have done in http://www.team-bhp.com/carpics/Rena...-duster-07.jpg, http://www.team-bhp.com/carpics/Maru...-ertiga-25.jpg, http://www.team-bhp.com/carpics/Mahi...-quanto-08.jpg etc.
