I propose that we change "Detailing and Cleaning" to "Detailing, Cleaning, and Visual Mods"

Discuss.

We'll do whatever the outcome of the poll shows.

Bitcore, wanna post some reasoning behind your movement to change that? (basically, tell them what you said in the PM)

There's not much of a place to discuss stuff like that, besides Detailing and Cleaning probably won't change much within the next 15 years either.... so I feel, as it is now, it's too narrow of a forum topic
yah

Detailing, Cleaning, and Visual Mods is good. If you make it just Exterior Mods, then we need to make a Interior Mods one as well...

I'm kinda thinking Detailing, Cleaning, and Exterior flows better, because what exactly defines "visual mods"?

Eyebrows, debadging, E46 headunit faceplates, turn signals (although they are "electrical", they are really just for show so more visual than anything else) sidemarkers, exhaust tips, wheels, tinting... Look at Torque's mod list.

You know, al the stuff that Woobie does to his car...

I agree with torque, although there are fewer mods to do inside that are difficult to pull off well with class and without being ricey, they wont have a place if we just do exterior mods.

It could be a great spot for somone to start a poll with a few things and asking people to choose their favorite of a list of pictures or something, It wouldn't clutter up the member lounge or Model Categories badly with stuff that can simply be partitioned to a topic of it's own.

The "Make yo' kar look nice" topic.

Another good point.

well... I got one problem with it... what does visual mods... say a rear diffuser have anything to do with what kind of wax to use... if the site starts to get a lot of traffic... it might be nice to put the two in two different forums... just not to complicate things...

Dont get me wrong.. it will work fine for the time being.. but get 30k members in here... and it will be rather full...

Just my two sents...

agreed, Exterior looks better. and it would be good to make it all 3(cleaning, detailing, exterior) because it would center everything more to (said name).

it will keep the tech sections cleaner also so it isnt all about "how do i install this wing", i think its a good idea, you have my vote.
