Showroom

Members made there own color showroom threads..Maybe there can be official showroom color threads? Might attract more attention to proud owners of OEM colors..Other then that, no complaints..I love the E46 and love this forum!

Great idea. Can you expand on how you see this working?

Hmm..Off the top of my head, maybe after selecting "BROWSE" there could be a tab called "CAR SHOW", then when you get into "CAR SHOW" (or could stick with showroom) have a list of E46's OEM colors, a title for CUSTOM COLORS, even a selection for E46's that are primarily done up for road racing, SCCA cone racing, etc..Even could go as far as "COUPES ONLY" and "SEDANS ONLY" selections before narrowing it down to the color section.
Members then post under there OEM color, CUSTOM color/wrap, or E46 RACING selection, after selecting COUPES or SEDANS and post there photos, mods or what have you under the selection..it would be just like a forum car show..
Heck, after selecting coupes or sedans, it could even narrow down to model (ex. 323, 325, 328, 330) select model after selecting coupe or sedan, then select OEM color, custom color, or E46 Racing...depends how in depth you would want to go..

With what I mentioned, you would hit browse, CAR SHOW, COUPE OR SEDAN, MODEL, then select your color, or custom, or E46 racing..

(Car model selection might spread it out to much though, but I think the coupes only or sedans only would be good)...

If I'm understanding you correctly there would be a sub-forum for every type. It makes sense from a browsing perspective but from a posting perspective it makes everything really segmented. What if we created a sticky thread with links to all the colors broken out by the categories you suggested above?

Yes, that is exactly what I was thinking, I just didn't know how to explain what I meant from a forum lingo perspective..
I think it would be pretty cool!

Sure! I would be glad to help! I am not very familiar with forum lingo. Now a sticky thread would be the selections after selecting CAR SHOW (or showroom) after selecting browse? Kind of like narrowing it down? How far do you think it should be narrowed down? Just by oem color, custom colors, and E46 Racing? Or do you think there should be a separate selection for SEDANS and COUPES? Again, I only mentioned a model selection, but I think it would spread it out way to much..

So basically what I am asking is what you would need help with? How do you see this idea panning out?

Also, I wanted to thank you for complimenting me on my idea..

So if I'm not mistaken, after selecting browse, members could either select "general e46" and then showroom, then have a sticky link for COUPES or SEDANS (or just do without the separation of coupes/sedans) then in the sticky thread there could be a list of all OEM COLORS, a separate sticky for custom colors, and another named E46 Racing...

I can get you a list of every OEM color they made for E46.

I apologize if I am making it confusing lol..
