    sounds like a good plan bro. id say get a mid-range amount of bandwidth until your site grows for now.

    and why just Civics??

    more people do stuff to civics and i thought it would be easier to gather info and diys just for one line then a whole bunch

    Hmm. We've already got one- it's called Civicland.

    http://www.civicland.com

    Go join up and do some work, then try to get on to the staff. The site can always use an infusion of talented people.

    100gigs alot of bandwidth (to me it is) so i think that will be plenty.

    mainly i going to have a huge list of simple diy's in a directory. the forums wont be a large part of the website. i know everyone is sick of stupid questions like how do i put on a cai, how do i take my bumper off and how do i take my speakers out.... etc. plus i want a site to host my own pics so i dont have to use anyone eles site to host.

    Ok, go for it then. Just get a simple service- something like 100MB of storage with 2-3GB per month of bandwidth. If you start going over, upgrade to a new plan but make sure you've got the income to pay for it.

    Oh yeah, Civicland is back up now.
