New Automotive website for the tuning crowd

Hey everyone,

My business partner and I are starting the work on a pretty innovative and exciting project for the mod community. It won't be competing with any other website, because simply there doesn't exist a website of that caliber or angle.

I can't disclose more information that this, but what I can disclose is that once it launches, the private beta period will be invitation based. I'm going to post the splash page once it's ready here, and give you guys the first opportunity as well as invite you to be the first ones on the site, and help us shape the features to what you want them to be.

I hope this isn't considered a spam post, and I really believe that the website will be seen as extremely helpful to those interested in modding their cars.

We won't be selling anything to anyone, nor will the website be charging for anything.

More to come soon.

i wouldn't consider it spam as much as i consider it to be pretty useless.

"hi i'm making a website, but i can't tell you anything about it. thanks for reading!" that's about all i've learned from this post.

I know, I know, I just got so excited about the project that i couldn't contain myself any longer. It does seem pretty useless at the moment as it doesn't tell you anything about the website. I hope to have a splash page and beta signup up in a week or so, and I'll re-visit the thread.

I honestly just dont see how any tuning website can be considered new and innovative. Any part thats sold for our cars is being sold by 20 different vendors.

As I mentioned before, we're not going to be selling anyone anything. I'll be getting a splash page and private beta sign up next week.

Here is a little teaser of the splash page, that gives away a little bit more.

We have the technology behind the website already developed, I'm just working on a nice clean skin to wrap it all in.

I'd welcome suggestions on the tag line, which currently reads "share and discover mods, brands and shops"

I'd also love to use a picture of a nicely modded BMW on the splash, so if anyone would like to recommend theirs, I'd greatly appreciate it.

So you want to make a website that just condenses where to buy mods, for people who dont want to read through the forums, and charge for advertising space?

I thought I'd bump this up. We have officially launched our coming soon page. We're launching at the beginning of September, and are the featured sponsor at this year's ImportFest.

Check out our teaser at http://www.modhungry.com
