Hey Everyone,

I would like you all to llook at my site, and tell me if you think it is easy to navigate, and understand, you must pretend like you are someone who knows nothing about web design, internet, and just be like someone going online to buy a car...

Do you find it easy to "sort" when in the inventory page, is it easy to search?

Just those little things...

An onMouseOver change on the top links may be nice... :D

Just a thought... I don't know why, but when I got to the inventory list I clicked on the thumbnail automatically to get the details before I saw the "Details" box. Maybe you could add the href to the thumbs... but then again maybe I'm the only one that would do this. Otherwise I think itís a nice site. I agree that a very subtle mouseover on the main nav would be nice (simple white to black text for example).

The main navigation is clear enough (although most of it doesn't work yet... :D ), but on the Inventory page the number of different selections takes a bit of getting used to. Very flexible, though.
By the way: nice design once again; must be about your fourth or fifth... ? :rolleyes:

the 'browse inventory' could perhaps do with a 'other makes' link - maybe opening to a page with manufacturer name links to section heads (which would also be good for spidering)

the 'browse inventory' was the first place I looked for finding a model that wasn't one of the four below the main graphic - only listing five manufacturers there really did give the impression that you only deal in those makes.

I tend to find people (especially newbie surfers) will always opt to click a link rather than type in a search term, so having a linked path to anywhere (ie one that doesn't require the search mechanism) seems helpful for both you and the surfer.

Also note: there are a few placement glitches when viewing the site in Moz1.1 - very nice though.

looks great... and you've already improved on it as people have suggested.

when viewing the details i half expect the bar that is bent back on itself (grey block on the right) to be pointing at something. it's very dominant and eye-catching (it's thicker than the rest). perhaps you know this and it's pointing the user's view back to the photo.

clicking on images is quite a big thing simply because people click them a lot. i tried to enlarge the pic on the details page by clicking on it, later to find the link below.

me thinks its very pretty, nice work :thumbsup:
