Default Flash this website!

We have close to 11k automobile enthusiasts as members for this site. And at any given time, guests outnumber members on www.team-bhp.com.

Given the above, 941 online users are a pittance and less than 10% of the member headcount.

Can we have a flash www.team-bhp.com day and boost that number? The day could be some special day in the not so far away future!

but then like BHP, more is better!

Yeah, correct. Maybe a typing without thinking! I wouldnt want www.team-bhp.com to take longer to upload, especially for folks on dial ups.

Thanks Superavi, but that would be an artificial attempt at boosting the number. Lets work toward doing it the right way.....building such great content within a great community that the "currently active users" consistently beats the 941 mark.

Do you have some internet cleaner app that automatically deletes browsing history, saved temp files and cookies?

Thumbs up

Hey i guess this question did come up a lot of times, STICKER - (sorry to type in caps) , how and where can we get hold of the team-bhp stickers for the helmets, bikes, cars in other words for different sizes. i am sure the mods are doing something about it , i did read some post about inquiring for the stickers. I personally dont want to make something cos , i dont know the font style for the same, as well as the design. But if anybody could forward the same, i can make one for my self and give the address to others for making them. Though will get it approved from the Fellow modS ,so if the sticker is provided at a cost from Team bhp would really appreciate that.

Apart from this i dont think i had any problems with the website or anything.

Thanx for the Putting up the great site,

my two cents.

the title of the thread `how are headlights blackened?` should memtion
tail lights as well because most of the pics in the thread are of smoked out tail lamps.


just a thaught...can all the members (those who have a garage in the forum) please include the AVERAGE (fuel) of there cars as well in the Specs. it will give a better idea about the car as some of them are moded so we can know how much average they are getting after that.
something like city- highway- best- worst-


cheers

Will rename the thread, but in the future please use the "report post to moderator" to make suggestions like this.

Sohail, I have some well made, cut letter stickers for number plates. You can pick them up from me, in mumbai. Anyone who wants them, email me. Please do not ask for them on this thread

Here is the thread where you can post your comments or questions - - (Team-BHP Reflective STICKERS Are Here !!!!)

How about adding a video section to the members BHP Garage?

1. Modded car -- Put up a video of what the car can do.. Like a 16 sec speed run video of the car taking off..etc etc
2. ICE -- Show off the ICE setup in your car
3. BODY KIT-- the various mods that you have done on your vehicle..

This is one of the better ways of showcasing your vehicle.

The main point this came to me was that there are a lot of beautiful cars in the BHP Garage.. I would just love to hear the engine and exhaust notes of most of them...See what the owner sees... Its not practically possible to own / see most of them..

Interesting idea Godfather,

However, hosting videos takes up a lot of bandwidth, so alternatively, the BHP Garage owner could just post a link to a YouTube video in his garage... what say?
