GTB Performance | Our new website is now live!


Hi All!

I'm proud to announce that our new website is now LIVE!

This is the culmination of 6 months worth of hard work that started with a lot of great suggestions from you guys, the Bimmerpost community. We've taken a lot of care and effort to make sure this site is a lot more user friendly than our previous design. We wanted to provide you with a visually stunning page that you would enjoy spending time on!




Thank you for your support, you guys made this a reality and allow us to keep on doing what we love, providing great parts for your BMW's!

If you have any problems or notice any glitches with the site, please let me know @ rich@gtbperformance.com

Website looks good. I would suggest changing the font color in the menu bar. Right now its too dark to read, which defeats the purpose of the menu bar.

Also, the side links (for HRE, Morr, ESS), seem to have some lag on them if you click on more than in one or two in succession.

Just a few observations.

BLOG link = 404

Put something, anything, there so it's not a dead link.

Esquire, thanks for the suggestions!

With the menu bar, are you referring to the Main drop down menu? Or the Side navigation once you are inside the categories?

We've noticed the lag on the main images too and its something to do with the server load. Looking at getting some more processing power and memory to help stop that from happening

Great stuff though, thanks!

I'm referring to the horizontal menu bar running near the top of the page with "BMW" , "BMW ///M" , "MINI", "BLOG, "ABOUT US." The font on the menu bar is grey, and is practically invisible against the black menu bar.

Notably i'm using Google Chrome as my browser.

On that topic, when I switch to another webpages tab on my chrome browser, and then switch back to your tab, your webpage is not there for some reason (instead it shows the website of the previous tab i was looking at), OR your website will finally pop up after5 or 6 seconds. This doesn't happen with any other website that I'm using.. only yours. Very weird.

Good luck.

Looks good, here are a few critiques. Your entire header + menu bar looks like it is having a seizure when I scroll around to different menu items (does not happen on android browser). Quite distracting, responsive design is nice but needs some tweaking. Most users will still be visiting on full size modern systems with large resolution displays. A full site/mobile site may (just an opinion) be a better solution.

Also the "hottest parts" slider is not staying within the container at low resolutions or in microbrowsers. Site does not expand to fill browser when device is rotated horizontal. Finally, just a nitpick but you have one tiny little pixel of white in the upper right corner of the logo. Viewed on Safari and Android Browser.

Thank you for pointing those out. We haven't optimized the site for mobile use yet, which is something we will be doing soon for sure!

Also thanks for pointing out the glitch in the Hottest Parts slider, we'll take a look and see whats causing it.

Care to elaborate? We chose a design that is different from any major BMW Parts vendor, but if you've seen it before I'd love to know where.
