I was... Some of the companies on their co-op do full sponsorships. Most do 'quasi-sponsorships' meaning you pay for roughly half of the MSRP on their product. There are chances of you pulling off full sponsorships, but you still have to pay cs.com $ to apply

in your opinion was it worth the time and money? also what are the companies that you got offers from the most?
I don't think it was worth the time because right after that I went into my JDM binge that I still haven't come out of (and won't). I don't want a bunch of sh*tty USDM sponsor stickers on my car unless they give me the stuff for FREE. Some companies I got 'sponsored' thru: VDI (quasi), GILA Film (full), one of those good system wiring companies (quasi), some paint manufacturer (quasi), underbody LED kit (16 million color combinations... quasi), and probably 4-5 more companies

I am currently doing it but for 1 reason. I am entering HIN july 8th and i dont want to pay for both enterence fee and electricity. Its like 89 for the sponsorship application (its how they make their money) and i have seen electricity hookups for HIN go between 100-200 then have to factor in fee to enter the car. They did get back to me and are showcaseing the car which pays for enterence for myself and another person as well as free electricity. With that they are sending me some stuff i really dont need but whatever. getting new set of dunlop tires (soposed to be top of line but whatever), getting the 16million undercarled kit (10 tube kit =$499), some carwash kit (dont really care about it), and a blaupunkt headunit (mp3/wma = $300). all totals for around 1200 or so and its all free and clear.

The trick with this company and sportcompact (origonal sponsorship type company, cs.com was a spinoff) is that they charge a large amount of applications that every teenager with parents credit card fills out. Most of these kids never buy anyhting and dont have cars for cs.com actually wanting to give free stuff to. so they make some good money without having to do anyhting. I wish i thought of this ;) But then there are few isntances where they do give free stuff and actually do more good then bad :)

so in my case all i wanted was to get electricity and enterence which i did and the other stuff was just nice to get. need more info let me know. and if there is a part for comments/ refferals tell them [email protected] told u ;)

ps. yes u will have to have some window sticker on ur car for a year, i think i have to have the blaupunkt one for a yea on my window but whatever. it may come off with washings and i'll need another whenever the next event comes around ;)

Also moto something was just sponsored in the same way i was for HIN but his was decemeber. u can talk to him on here or teamcelica where he is more often. He got i belive the tires, some diamond plate mats, and a custom airpaint job on his hood. the paintjob wasnt really my style but it looked pretty good for what is was. he was pretty happy and got his $ worth as well.

It all boils down to how modified (deffinitly more interested in appearence being their market to suucker in teenagers with their mom's car), how often you contact them when applying, and what ur applying for.

exactly why I didn't get anything.. well I did get the underbody LED kit... I may or may not install it and I'll just see whether or not they try to make me pay for the rest of it. If so, I'll probably just sell it at a discount and charge what I already paid to the game. It may go on the car IF I decide to go to HIN...

I didn't because my car looked like ****. Actually when I applied I still had the mis-matching bumpers from my ex-gf wrecking the car! But I have no doubt whatsoever in my mind that I could pull a HIN full sponsorship out when my car's done in the shop. But I still don't want all those other companies' stickers on my car.

I'd rather pay the elect. and show fees personally. I hate Blaupunkt (compared to my Alpine setup), don't want Dunlop tires (I normally get Kuhmos or something to that effect), and I only want paint on my car (unless I get a JDM sponsor.. i.e. Advan {Yokohama})

i always thought that website was a hoax.. or a complete ripoff.

i wouldn't really try a sponsorship if you want free mods.. cause most likely you won't get a free mod.. you'll have to pay for some of it and then be an admobile for a while

I had carsponserships.com for awhile but they just wern't helping me with my vision. If you want a good one goto Team SCP. They'll hook you up
