The F430 on your homepage is a manual!

I need an Aventador!

Yes, and a new engine. It was an early 430, eventually was claimed a lemon... got ugly.

Anyone want an invite?

I'd like an invite, but would like to know a little more about it. Is it a forum? Is it sort of Luxury4Play where it focuses on luxury and sports cars across the board? Or just sports cars?

You wouldn't happen to know the old and new engine numbers of that F430, would you?

It's a global thing.

Everyone here is getting a very early look into the Beta version of the site. Not convinced I have the interface nailed down 100%.

Working on the "About" page and marketing to explain the idea.

A few things you can do:
1. Follow multiple forums and the updates there (more will be added)
2. Track your "toys" (cars and boats for the moment, adding motorcycles and planes soon)
3. Build a "wish list" to see over time how your tastes may change (remember when you were 22 just out of school and wanted ______ a few years you can look back and see
4. Connect with friends, share photos

Things coming soon:
1. Track database, post your best lap times, share/compare with your mates etc
2. News customized to what's in your garage

It's a social network so it will be limited to who you want to see things. Hopefully it goes viral among us petrolheads.

Sending you an invite via PM.

I still have the paper work on an old HD sitting in my drawer for the engine. I have a video somewhere too of the mess. Give me a month to dig it up.

AvidSquare

The beta for AvidSquare is now live. AvidSquare is designed to be a combination private social network for Ferrari / Supercar owners and forum consolidator as it allows you to pull the feeds on your posts/threads from all of the "Life" sites. Personally this is a major plus as checking multiple forums can be a bit of a pain. Also as you can restrict access to posts/updates to your designated "friends" only on AvidSquare, it provides a much higher level of privacy than any public forum. Access is by invite only. PM me if you are interested.

Sorry I'm not the greatest IT or web user so I'm at a bit of a loss as to how this actually works...

Good question. Hopefully Andrew will be along to answer shortly.

From what I have seen, it is only the ones you subscribe to (via posting or starting a new thread).

AvidSquare Beta Update & FLIfe + new features

For everyone who has signed up for the AvidSquare beta, two key features are now working very well and have been expanded. On top of the added privacy Avid Square has built in, one of the other key goals was to create a single place that you could view updates to all the forums you may regularly post on or subscribe to.

The number of forums that now pull directly in has been increased and the feeds now pull in well. Please see attached for examples.

If you have not visited it recently, please do so and pm me your feedback. Thanks.

I have been using AvidSquare regularly for several weeks now. The new post feeds directly off all the ....Life forums are great. Saves a ton of time going back and forth.

Highly recommend everyone give it a try for a few days.

PM me if you need an invite.
