What makes a car worthy of COTM?????

I don't mean to be a sore loser, but I was wondering what actually makes a car COTM?
Most times cars that are stock but for a few small things appear as car of the month, which to me is retarded, since doing a build on a car, and doing it tastefully is what should get a car nominated.

As an observation, the comments to my threads its nice
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=384797

and its nicer at night
http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=386894

I counted at least 6 comments that said definitely COTM.
On the rest of the comments, were mostly best ever AW on the forum etc etc

How come a stock ZCP with an Akra gets COTM for May?

I'm baffled, any comments from the community?

PS I am not serious, taking the piss, but curious none the less

Hi Bob

You know how much I like your car, and I for one agree that it is worthy of COTM, gets my vote every time

Yours is one of the cleanest modded cars there is, mine however is a lot more aggressive but I still managed COTM.

C'mon guys vote for Bob MG

maybe because your pictures are normal and not all dazzled up, they are also small and all packed into the threads.

agreed on the photoshoot. I can honestly say that yours is my favorite M3 on this board, so I don't see any other reason why you wouldn't be COTM, if not COTY (if there is such a thing).

Does the COTM actually get posted anywhere? I've never seen it and only recently discovered where to vote for it. Unless someone actually requested a vote in a thread I probably wouldn't think about it. Like selling anything online pictures make a huge difference.

Regardless of what car actually got it, to my knowledge, your car was the best and most significant private build to be completed recently. My favorite by far.

Check the home page.

I agree with the OP. No stock car should be CotM.

I agree. And lightly modified cars shouldn't get too much consideration either. When I think COTM, I'm thinking lots of mods, which make the car stand out -- in a good way -- from the rest of the crowd.
