    Default News...

    You guys have been doing a kick ass job with news recently, keep up the great work! It will take some time, but if you update consistently and make your posts interesting and more personal to everyone (like write your opinions and what not), you should start to get a decent following that will keep growing and growing. Watch the views number on each thread.....it will slowly start to move up as you continuously post good news on a consistent basis. Also, watch it to see what posts people are interested in reading about. Obviously more views = more interest.

    Hope I don't scare the readers away when I start bitching about NYC traffic.

    By the way Dave, do you guys only deal with Nissan? Just asking because I got a Honda civic.

    Nice car you got there. One of these days I'll post some picts of mine.

    Other question:
    The news coverage block, could it be made longer and some form of definition of different days?

    eg:
    Sunday's News
    .
    .
    .
    Monday's News
    .
    .
    .

    And since the news seems to be the most active part of the site for now (except for the forums) could it be moved up so people don't have to scroll down to get it or the latest content be made smaller?

    One more thing:
    How does the price watch/update thingy work? If you want I could start keeping that current.
    Just fill me in on how its done.

    I have an answer to the last question. Once it's setup, it's all automatic, so you don't need to worry about it .

    No we don't do just Nissans, but we're a fairly new company, and starting off with mainly Nissans...So for now, nothing for a Civic.

    As for the news, there's really no way to split it up by date, at least while the news is integrated into the forums (which I think is more important if you guys want to start building up traffic on the forums).

    For the CPU Pricewatch, there is an admin and you update from there every week. Gotta talk to Steve about it and see what he wants to do. It definitely needs to be updated with newer products and removing some of the older stuff....Just a warning it's very tedious work...basically data-entry.

    Pricegrabber will be sending me scripts so that I can have live feeds from them to keep the products and prices up to date.

    If it all works this is one area that we won't have to spend stacks of time updating.

    Well we don't plan not to do anything. We do styling and performance products. So far all of our products have been styling, but we're releasing a rear sway bar within a month for the 91-94 Sentra.

    What's wrong with yours HIDs? Who makes them? True HID or just white light? How much did yuou pay for them?

    They are the real deal. Second gen at that. Paid 450 for them. Most of the time when I turn them on only one side comes on, after turning it on and of several times then the other side would come on. Its only the right side that gives me the problem.
