XM655 has a new-look website

Postby Sooty655 » Mon Feb 13, 2012 6:46 pm

Our new webmaster (also known as WaddoVet) has been very busy over the last few weeks giving XM655's website a whole new look. :ymapplause: :ymapplause:

Head over to http://www.xm655.com to see what you think.

One Olympus 301 has twice the power of a complete F1 starting grid.
XM655 has four of them, all serviceable.

It's informative, to the point, nice to
look at and (yes...) CLEAN!

A fine piece of work (which she very
certainly deserves!)

:ymapplause: to all involved!

Thanks for all the positive feedback, folks.

There's still a fair amount to do, and things to be added - so be sure to keep checking back!

The Merchandise page has now been updated to make it much easier to see what you're buying!
(You WILL be buying some 655MaPS Merchandise, won't you?) ;)

We're hoping it won't be too long before you will be able to purchase online...

Well, it took rather longer than we anticipated, but I'm sure you will all be pleased to know you can now both join MaPS and purchase our wonderful merchandise online.

We are all ready for the rush ~ what are you waiting for?
