Looks really nice, great job. The photographs are especially good :)

A couple of small things though; the top banner doesn't extend the full width of the page on my iPhone, and also the contrast between the text and background on a couple of elements on the homepage makes it a little tough to read the link to the forums (under the "welcome to the new fiestaturbo.com") and also the dates under the titles of the articles in the lighter grey area.

Minor niggles though, it looks fresh :D

Might be worth trying to get a mention of the change in direction in some of the magazines?

Cheers!

Just fixed that link colour and the dates.

I'll be sorting the issues with iPhone (and iPad) soon. I own both so it's very important the site works properly and looks good on them.

Loving the new site!


Ref. the iOS issue...

Noticed the same issue in Reeder (http://cl.ly/image/3A3a2g0Y1z12) then realised you can replicate it in Safari too (http://cl.ly/image/1h3Z3V112z3a) by making the window too narrow and scrolling across.

So then it occurred to me I've encountered this oddity in Safari/Chrome on iOS as well, not sure why but they always seem to render margins relative to the window edges as if the window is too small. I ended up having to put everything I wanted a margin around inside another div so the boundaries of that became the window edges, all worked fine after that. Visual effect in my case was that I had no margin where there should have been one, but it looks like the same rendering oddity that was causing it.
