Can we get a fresh new home page photo?

Nothing personal, but the Sedona Red is due for a much needed break.

Judging by the numbers of those ordering AW here I guessed as much.

The site owners may need to redesign the site however as a white 1'er would be a tad bland on these pages. The Sedona adds some contrast.

Lol true, I never liked the sedona red that much when I first made the homepage, but there aren't that many great official press quality photos of the car in any other color, so I wait to find a picture of the car in just the right color.

As for the red car on the top right of the forums, i think it adds some nice contrast so I will leave that there, whats everyones opinions on how the forums looks now ?

Well, the border around the forums is monaco-blueish, which automatically makes whatever it covers uber-awesome, so i'm fine with it. :biggrin: The SR 1er in the corner is actually a good contrast to the blue, IMO.
Plus I, and I'm willing to suspect many others on this site, have the direct link to the forums bookmarked so I don't even see the front page anymore.

To summarize the topics above:
1. Monaco blue border
2. SR 1er in the corner
3. Forum layout
4. Front page layout

I agree with Mateo, Dclee1 and the Freak in keeping the first three as is.
I really dig starting at the front page, checking out the new threads that way (more out of habit than anything else). But would definitely switch out that "land of the rising sun" background and go with a pic from a new angle and with a new color car. Just my two cents.
Can't wait to see what she looks like!

The sedona banner actually looked better. There is not enough contrast between AW, and the silverish banner.
