    Please, please, please.

    Type of Image: Banner
    Text on image: BavarianForums (if too long, BavForums)
    Specific Images: BMW automobile related
    Colour Scheme: site is black/gray with a little red/orange and purple.
    Size (in pixels): 900-1280px* × 80px
    *Full width 1280, but if viewed in a smaller window, still visible at 900px wide
    Animations: nope. But open to your creativity.
    Things to avoid: No BMW logo.


    I've been told this one sucks, in more polite words.

    Thank you to anyone taking a shot.

    get a few postcards from the BMW-museum in munich and scan them, it would make for a nice banner.
    I have worked for bmw in munich many years ago and still have some old BMW-postcards in my basement somewhere....

    That might be cool, but I have no talent, as you can see by my attempt at a banner.

    Why do you need full width , small and creative would look much better don't you think ?

    I never liked that banner when i visited that site for first time :p

    No one has liked it. :)
    I want a banner that is scalable, if that is the word.

    Well i gave it a stab.. Its partially transparent on the right side so any color you use as a background in the header will effect the way it looks.. If you dont care for it thats all good to.. No worries, but i dont have time to make a ton of edits. So it comes as is... You can take it or leave it, either way it wont hurt my feelings. ;)

    Logo Final:

    Example Jpegs with varying backgrounds to show how you can tweak it to suit your sites colors.

    I do like it. Can the blue in the logo be changed? Big trademark infringement.
    And maybe a black gradient on the right so it could blend in with the black background color?
    Am I asking too much? :)

    Keeping the legalities of the TM in mind i made a revision.. ;)

    Depending on the background color you choose in the style property's you can easily achieve several different looks from the same banner.
    Example of header with advertisement

    You can achieve any variation youd like by changing the color of the header in the ACP.

    Its a transparent png so it will blend in on the right side with whatever background color you choose for the header in the XF ACP. The Thumbnails i posted are just examples of ow it would look with different background colors of your choice.

    I like the one with the tach.
    I'll upload it later and see what it looks like.

    Can I get a copy of the black one?
    Might look cool is an animated tach at redline. :)

    here is my shot at it, personally I think your skin would clean up much better if you keep your logo and banner smaller. Just a thought, see the attachments.
