    This is 1 of 7 themes from the Speed. Meet Style. range.

    I put loads of effort into making this theme set which took me around 8 hours to finish! 8 hours seems a hell of a lot but that's because I was making lots of improvements and experimenting as well as discovering new things in PaintShop Pro. When I make themes, I also ask myself 'how can I make this even better'? And until I run out of improvement ideas well that's it.

    Probably the best car theme in the world! Hit me with any suggestions you may have. [​IMG]

    I must give thanks to LaGranda for the a small snippet and bckgrd_2 template from his excellent theme, Round Carbon.

    Enjoy! [​IMG]

    You should have done one for the Aston Martin DB9 -- The Cayman S is the Carrera Lite.

    Nonetheless, it looks nice

    Thanks [​IMG]

    The Cayman S can't be a Carrera Lite because I just Google Imaged 'Carrera Lite' coming up with nothing to do with this car (let alone any car!)

    Umm.. I meant, in terms of speed, performance and design. The Cayman S is a lite version of the Carrera. In fact, Top Gear did a comparison between the Carrera, Carrera S and Cayman S. They called it the Bargain Porche.

    The captions are a little off centered, but otherwise looks okay I guess. Not a big fan of cars, so this theme doesn't really do much for me. [​IMG]

    The captions for the logo are exactly the same size, unless you mean the icons screen?

    I meant that "games" isn't centered with its logo. "Multimedia" is also slightly off, but it's virtually unnoticeable(~1 pixel off). Not a big deal... I just get really obsessive compulsive when it comes to symmetry. [​IMG]

    Man you really do get obsessive compulsive! [​IMG] I would have never noticed that just by looking at it and just by looking at it it's absolutely fine as it is! [​IMG]
