The BMW Homepage - a project I did for school...

*This is by no means advertising, just something I made for class and would like to share.

I made this BMW homepage and just thought I'd share with the true enthusiasts....enjoy

Basically it's your google.com homepage/search but instead of being plain white it has high res BMW backgrounds (rotates a new one each time it loads)




ENJOY and constructive criticism is encouraged.

Nice overall, I like your choice of pics.

I'd sharpen up the bar behind the BMW Roundel. If you could get it to look like they meshed better it'd look nicer overall.

Just wanted to bump because I fixed a few things. You can now click to set it as your homepage for IE, drag the link to your home button to set the homepage for FireFox, and other browsers are supported with a link to instructions to manually set your homepage.

The search form field is now in "Focus" and you don't need to click to search.

To get all of the bugs worked out and having it function like it does now, a few months I'd say?

Just wanted to note I upgraded the entire server and also compressed ALL iCarHomepage background to a 1/3 of their original size. Load times are now close to instant.

Check out more @ http://www.iCarHomepage.com

Can you find one with a black guy in the car. I feel like BMW hates me because there are no black people in those pictures. It makes me want to search for "why does BMW hate us black people?"

I would also like to add that I hope you are in elementary school, because icarhomepage.com builds it all for you. All you had to do was go to bmw.com and steal the pictures.
