Oh that is VERY nice! I did a car site my self Euro Cars Bushey

On your site the icons on the navigation should have the same style and at the moment they do not.

Well done the site looks good.

Thanks for review!

Icons - agree, I am working to fix it.

Your site is good too, but it is small comparing to mine.

Hi,

I think its very good --- professional look, you have all the necessary shortcuts there, and it certainly inspires trust.

I don't know if anyone else has this problem, or if I'm justing accessing at a wrong time (too many visitors!?), but I was losing patience for a few links.

e.g., Smart Buys took well over 20-30 seconds to load (I accessed it at 18:00 pm CET), and a similar delay was found for other links. I have a DSL connection which is fast, so I expect this delay is entirely on your server side in processes the requests.

In other words, I would recommend you upgrade your server or improve the efficiency of your database access. In terms of the site design, I think you've got a good thing going, so the best of luck to you!

Thanks Dr Nick!

>e.g., Smart Buys took well over 20-30 seconds to load

it is strange, I have to check my provider, I think it is a connection problem. Site has no visitors yet, I try to get reviews for it before real launch.

Maybe it is database ....

people, just stop.
two years old
you don't need to still be posting here. Why is everyone doing that? You don't take the time to check when the post was made and then disregard other people making note of how ancient it is??

i have to add my 2 cents here.

It is great to see that a website which has been reviewed 2 years ago in this forum, is doing so well today. The site has a PR5 and an alexa of some 200,000. Not bad.

I think it all works well. The images are solid and the spacing tight! I would suggest moving your content (links and pictures of actual cars for sale) from the bottom and move them to the top just below the header, where the AUTOdealer magazine ads are. Put the autodealer mag ads below. Just move the "featured autos" and "dealers specials" up to the top of that middle section.

I would also move the GREEN media search box at the upper left down below the "just listed" bow and change the color to blue like the rest of your pages.

I would also remove or re-format the two auto picture boxes just below the "about us" link to somewhere more fitting.

Otherwise I like the site, looks professional! Good luck!

can we just have these topics locked??? the user that submitted this hasn't even submitted a post since Wed Sep 17, 2003 so why would he now be here looking at our reviews?

Why do people insist on being annoying and posting on old posts.. does there need to be an actual rule or something since common sense doesn't seem to be a forte in here all the time?

I agree with you snicksnack it is a good thing to see.

Great site autosndeals, top notch. Sorry that its taken nearly 2 years for me to review your site, but the changes you must've made since then are great. Here's to another 2 years when I return to review your site in 2007, looking forward to some updates. Hope to see you around Ozzu sometime, I havent seen you online since September 2003. Great job. :wink:

autosndeals,

Excellent website you have there. I love the graphics you have designed of the small cars. Very professional looking.

Your navigation is outstanding; simple and easy to use.

I think its very professional, but maybe change the "interactive media search" to a more vibrant hue.

Why complain. It looks great and professional. Anyway, what would it cost me or is it available to install on the website?
Thanks

It's really nice work

But, add something at the bottom of the left-side menu (it is a boring empty space)

And put the copyright at the footer inside a box seperated from the main area
