“Probably the most complete motoring forum”

Written on: 11/03/2013

A lot of forums suffer if there are a lot of sections, but Pistonheads has the shear weight of posters to keep most turning over nicely. Seems to be the 'go to' place for some marques. Only downside is a place so popular will naturally attract some idiots, but it seems the people behind the scenes actively filter, so trouble is brief and never becomes a problem… Read Full Review

“Expensive to advertise on for Car traders, Badly designed”

Written on: 06/02/2013 by clairewalker (1 review written)

Car traders have to pay £17 for a classified and the public pay £9.99??? So if I put on half my stock it would cost me £340... They are as greedy as Auto trader. The website is badly designed and hard to find your way round... I tried the site for a while but It didn't work for me, Its a shame as I would love to move away from Auto trader but not to another greedy company… Read Full Review

“The Best Car Web Site In The World!!”

Written on: 17/01/2013 by PeriPix (1 review written)

This is the arguably the best car site in the world. The forum are jam packed with useful info, classified contains tonnes of cars and if you want to sell one then you can upload an ad within minutes and expect your phone to be busy. News & Features is always updated with very interesting articles. If you consider yourself a PistonHead then look no further!!… Read Full Review

“Pistonheads should come with a health warning, or a...”

Written on: 15/01/2013 by Sinclair_S (1 review written)

Pistonheads should come with a health warning, or a wealth warning, or both. The forums have the ability to suck out time from your working day with alarming efficiency, a quick browse before "knuckling down" can often see you through to lunch. The classifieds contain such a wide array that you can start misty eyed, wondering why you can't afford half the stuff on offer (the reason being of course answered in that you didn't work for the first half of the day!). It's become a home from home, a… Read Full Review

“Shiny yet friendly with pleasingly moist undertones”

Written on: 15/01/2013

I left my home country, as one does, on a Greyhound bus, cast out, in the words of Roderick Stuart, by the ones I loved, and found myself adrift, alone and bereft in a new and strange place the locals called the web. Clinging for comfort to the lightbulb bequeathed to me by the youngest of my birth mothers I somehow chanced upon Pistonheads. Oh, what wonders there confronted me! Almost impossible to classify. With the Alanis Morisette inducing exception of the classifieds, wherein I procured… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/01/2013

all of which have been sold to genuine people, within a few days of the ads going live with prices ranging from £1500 - £17,000. I've even sold a motorbike with a lapsed MOT with ease! Recommended and always used, the ease of uploading and fast response means I'm not going anywhere else. Cheap too at under a tenner… Read Full Review

“If Carsberg made a website it still wouldn't be as good.”

Written on: 14/01/2013 by AlbertLee3 (1 review written)

Been a member know for in excess of 10 years, met so many like minded members overs the years some are now considered to be my greatest of friends. The site really has everything to offer the automotive enthusiast. It also has a plethora of forums & sub forums to cater for all marques of exotica and general driving cars. The classifieds are a joy every car imaginable on offer some you can afford and some you can't but we can a lest dream. Don't seem to get too many spam type adverts and the… Read Full Review

“More a way of life.”

Written on: 14/01/2013 by burriana (1 review written)

I have been a part of Pistonheads.com for over ten years. In that time I have been to some fantastic events; from doing 197mph up to runway at Bruntingthorpe to several continental road trips with great mates and fantastic cars. I have met a lot of real time friends through Pistonheads. It is much more than just a car forum… Read Full Review

“Great. Bit too tempting. Costs me a fortune!”

Written on: 14/01/2013 by WaveyDaveyGravey (1 review written)

Browsing PH Classifieds is one of the most dangerous wallet-ruining sports in the world. Great community based site that works hard to get it right without overt commercialism. Has brought me great laughs on the forums, some very good editorial at times and pretty much every car purchase I've made in the last 7 years or so… Read Full Review

“If petrol runs through your veins, PistonHeads is for you”

Written on: 14/01/2013 by Matt172 (1 review written)

Been a member on the site for nearly ten years now and have met an amazing group of friends. PH is a great place to meet like minded individuals who are nuts about all things petrol. the one thing that stands out above all else on the forums and at the meets is that it doesn't matter what car you drive to be a pistonheader, be it a mini metro or a Ferrari F40, you are always made welcome?… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/01/2013

Ive been on pistonheads since the early days, made some great friends, and found out loads of things about buying and running my cars. its also a great place to find out about racing and ive even picked up a few business tips. The site is split between the news area and the forums. the journalist driven items are as high quality as any printed media, and the forums cover a vast spread of topics. well worth a browse… Read Full Review

“Cars, banter and Chris Harris”

Written on: 14/01/2013

I've been using this site for years, it's always been a great forum - incredibly busy, but these days you can lose hours in the classifieds, and watch Chris Harris videos. A great way to waste time and build your fantasy garage… Read Full Review

“The best site for buying and selling cars in my...”

Written on: 14/01/2013

I've used this site to sell my wife's Golf and her Mini. It was really easy to create the ad and upload pictures, it was great value (just under a tenner - much cheaper than comparable sites) and I found that I got lots of phone calls and emails from people wanting to buy both cars. I eventually sold the Mini and the Golf to people I found through PistonHeads and I'd recommend it to others. I'm on PistonHeads all the time now. I can't leave the classifieds alone, there are just too many… Read Full Review

“My favourite car website”

Written on: 14/01/2013

I use this site on a daily basis, both for the news and articles on the home page and the forums. Articles are often in depth and always well written, often the first for news about all things automotive. The forum provides a knowledgeable and helpful community on a great number of subjects, from Heath and fitness, cooking, photography, pets and of course all things automotive. I also really like the functionality of the forum with its clean design and excellent moderation. The classifieds… Read Full Review

Pistonheads is a place to buy/sell your car. It also has forums behind it that provide a wealth of information on everything under the sun - quicker than looking in an encyclopedia - gives good advice, and provides hours fun, together with days out, charity works, driving holidays and new friends to be made. … Read Full Review

“Great site”

Written on: 14/01/2013

PH is a lovely place to be. Like all sites, the forums do contain the odd muppet but there are also captains of industry, scientists, engineers, real supercar owners, police and professionals kicking about, all united by a common interest in motoring. Sure, the news items are sometimes a little behind the Twittersphere, some of the 'in jokes' are tiring, but it's all outweighed by the overall positives of being able to shoot the sh*te in the constant company of like-minded boys and girls… Read Full Review
