In my free time I've been working on this website: .

I started it after I realised how ridiculously expensive Trademe motors is.
This site is and will be free, maybe some ads to break even.

I've modified many joomla scripts and it seems to be working quite well now.

I need as much feedback as I can get. There is a lot of interest in this area and I believe it could work.
Feel free to sign up for an account and test the system.

Once it's properly done I'll probably try to talk to Repco about support.

Becarefull of Repco, I know of people who wanted to offer them a product to sell, made them sign a NDA etc. Repco said no and then went and sourced product via Asia with disregard to the NDA. Repco probably have more lawyers than this company had staff so they wouldnt have been scared at all.

Hey digital, just signed up on your new website!!.

Registration was easy, the site seems easy enough to browse and the layout is cool too...

The only weird thing I guess is the main header where the headlights for the yellow car are covered by the date?? Its not a biggy but it was one of the first things that I noticed.

Overall I think your onto a winner, ill keep my eye out for some cool cars and try to convince the missus..

Now this is what you call a late reply, my apologies.

Internet was down for about a week, Telecom technician told me a wire in the exchange had corroded =\.

Thanks a lot for that, I'll have a look into it.

Thanks! Smile

sillybilly: the main header where the headlights for the yellow car are covered by the date

Still haven't been able to find a problem there.
Seems to me as though IE does it's job fine there, a rare occassion I know.

Could you maybe post or send me a screenshot?


Anyone else have any suggestions?
