    So we're recently added adverts to the site and Premium Membership, we're hoping to get enough funds together for a large merchandise order. Aside from more generic Honda Karma material, it'd be nice to get some bumper stickers.

    Ideas I've seen in the past, paraphrased a few:

    "If you're not driving a Honda, you're following one."
    "Warning! VTEC Driver - Will Rev at Anything "
    "Hold On Not Done Accelerating"
    "VTEC Inside"
    "My blood Type is R."

    Doesn't have to be straight Honda related: "I fry my chips in 10w40".

    Perhaps hold a poll at the end and see what people are most interested in.

    Not the best, but I tried: "I watch motor series, you're watching K-Series."

    I quite like the idea of using quotes from Soichiro Honda with "Honda Karma" branding...

    I think that's a good idea too.

    "Success represents the 1% of your work which results from the 99% that is called failure."
    "Racing improves the breed."
    "If Honda does not race there is no Honda."
    "We only have one future, and it will be made of our dreams, if we have the courage to challenge convention."

    Seems to have potential, as long as they aren't under copyright?

    Very much in keeping with the forum ethos too IMHO - and a touch of class :Innocent:

    I very much doubt it, but will confirm before any are actually used on printed material.

    I agree with that too, though there's also the flip-side of wanting humorous/entertaining quotes too which appeal to the masses.

    ^^ Yes, agree - hopefully room for both.

    I like that too. "Last garage visit, last MOT. Next garage visit, next MOT."

    "My Honda will last longer than your next Deutsch Auto." (works better with the German pronunciation)

    "Honda - the intelligent choice since 1948"

    "VTEC inside - Take that Ingolstadt!"

    I <3 favicon.

    There are thousands of possibilities, but I personally think the Soichiro quotes are much more in line with the forum and the brand.

    Otherwise this may aswell just be another VW/local cruise forum - anyone fancy some big illegible script across their windscreen?

    I agree that the quotes and more mature things is something we should definitely be focusing on, doesn't negate the fact that more witty/humorous quotes have more appeal and will definitely be brought more.

    As for the silly windscreen decals, I think we're going to have one for HK, but a faint discreet outline of the logo. The giant white cursive decals ruin the cars look IMO.

    Bump for visibility. We're not far off making our first order now.

    Have you considered a HK sticker for rear view mirror - windscreen side?
    Used to have one there as a parking permit

    We're open to all suggestions to be quite honest. I think what we'll do is have a poll in a week or so and find out what type of stickers/decals people are most interested in.

    The only bumper sticker I could think of was. "German cars are crap":Tea:

    I do like the idea of a discreet sticker on the front. That way you can see if other accord owners are members while driving and not play the lone flash game:Blushing:. I'd even have the HK logo on the side somewhere. Maybe by the front wheel arch or on the sideskirts.

    I need to play with photoshop a little more but here's a non discrete branding for the club. I hope the picture has attached.

    How about a sticker for the karma in Japanese font.all you have to do is put it on the boot next to the H logo or the Honda logo , discreet and only known to the people in the know..

    get people curious
