Stickers for Stickies!

Postby M20_fever » Fri May 15, 2009 10:44 pm

ok people, we need to seperate ourselves from the "other" e30 sites out there and I think the best way to do that is to have the most comprehensive sticky selection on the net. I know it sounds daunting, but taken in baby steps it's not so bad.

To help inspire you I have decided to reward you for your contributions to this sites sticky collection. For now that reward will be one set of e30performance stickers in your choice of available colors. Eventually I will be offering shirts as well as some other cool schwag.

This is how it's going to work, I have come up with a list of sticky topics I would like to see added to our collection. This list will include every level of work that can be done on an e30, from oil changes to engine swaps. Obviously an engine swap how-to is significantly more work than an oil change so we'll start small and work our way up as I have more valuable prizes available. Each sticky topic will state what the prize is for posting the how-to if it's going to be more than a set of stickers, therefore nothing listed means stickers, get it?

Now about the quality of a sticky worthy write up. I expect a true noob to BMWs (but not auto repair in general) to be able to tackle the easiest topics with the help of the stickies which means good step by step instructions with pictures that clearly show the work and at least a list of needed tools. Browsing our current stickies will give you an idea of what I'm looking for. Obviously someone who has never picked up a wrench may need more help than a write up can provide, but it should at the very least give them an idea of whats involved.

As for the list, I will start small and keep 5 or 6 topics listed at a time, as someone completes a topic I will replace it with what I deem a suitable addition to the site.

on to the list:

Complete tune up
rear wheel bearing replacement
Brake Job
Valve adjustment

If you have any questions as to what the content for these topics should be, ask.
Lets see if we can get these done so we can move on to bigger an better topics and make this site the best e30 resource on the web.
