Ok.. as you can see it works ok... couple of things i need to do but i am near the point of hanging myself with the amount of hacking to do to keep these forums intact.

If any members come across errors then please let me know.... The odd Face look may look scruffy in places but that will have to wait until i get round the rest

Have fun peeps and I hope you enjoy the new forum

new added feature

Flashing mail box sign when you have a new U2U... the U2U's are much better than before.. you can when you have read your u2u and once you have read them the main notification link then dissapears so you know when you have a new u2u. Much better!

Moods.. if you want to change your mood.. goto your control panel and goto Edit Profile and change your mood to how you feel.

Errors displaying code and parse errors.. this was because alot of members changed their templates in their profiles a while back... even though these are fixed please goto your profile and select DEFAULT .. this way if the templates get updated in the future you wont receive these errors.

If you would like to receive emails when someone replies to your post then when writing a new post please tick the "receive notification " check box.

Todays post feature has changed.. it is alot better than the old one. The only difference is I have not implemented the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 days worth of posts yet. If alot demand it then i will implement it again.

Please display your location in your profiles.. below your avatars is now your location.. and to help other members establish where you are we would appreciate you placing your location in your profiles.

Any other features to the forums then please let me know.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.

      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”

      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.

      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.

      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
