Default We need an "Appearance" section

I know there's a maintenance section... but we need an appearance section. It can go in the "Car Parts and Maintenance" area.

It can have subsections and subtitles (in parenthesis)

-Paint (Waxing, Polish, Sealant, Repair)
-Modifications (Share your appearance mods with the forum)
-Show Off (Show off your car!)


... or if you don't like the subsections you can just have an appearance section... but I really think we need a section dedicated to appearance where people can show off their cars, their mods, discuss waxing techniques etc.

Regardless, we need an official "show-off" section. We can also have monthly "featured" cars like I've seen on other sites. Basically you write about your car, and put up a nice photo of it all polished.

I am glad you brought it up. the only problem I ran into was the overlap created by performance to appearance. If you have a show car and you put a carbon fiber hood with scoops on the car; it also is used on race cars to reduce weight and allow better ventilation of the engine. Another thing would be rims and tires.
Some people buy rims for show but some people are serious autocrossers who have bought them because of there light weight and strength. The SSR competition rims might not look cool but they are only 13pounds.


We have started this discussion already here

How about we shove it all in an "aftermarket" section.

Instead of one "apperance" section, why not put pieces of the big group in the sub-sections of the forums?

For example: Put things like spoilers and body kits in the "Other Car Parts and Components" section, while waxing or detailing topics could have a sub-catagory under "General Maninence".
