    I think the wheel is a little bit too fast, other than that it's great.
    I like the vanishing lights

    hey
    It took quite a while to load (Im using 300K broadband) so I think it would be wise to have a preloader.
    Im not keen on the boarder, the gradients look a little misaligned.

    The spinning wheel has rough edges and does move a little fast.

    The car has been photographed at an angle but when it moves into the distance it drives off straight so it looks a little odd. i think it would look ok if it went of into the distance and slightly to the left.

    Love the lights moving on the walls and the traffic lights, logo etc all look great.

    Hope this helps

    I think it looks cool, love the sounds.
    I agree with M about the bevelled border
    Also thee angle of the car does seem slightly off. Apart from that.. I like

    I like the sound and the lights are a nice touch. The animation of the car is a little off, but other than that I can't really find anything else.

    Thanks for looking guys! I'll play with smoothing out the car animation and try it either without the border or at least without the bevel and I'll try to squeeze a bit more compression.

    The edges are rather sharpish/pixellated - I'd say more, but I had to close it, I'm blaring JukeBox hits out of the speakers, and as the header had sound, it was a rather interrupting sound.

    Thanks Martin, I appreciate that but I can do Flash preloaders and may add one if needed. Are you sure you're getting 300 kbps? I tried it on dial up just for a test and it loaded quickly and on my DSL it loads instantly. ???
