Iphone5 pics of my car

Nothing special about this car but I just got the iphone5 (my first iphone) and the camera is pretty darn impressive for a cell phone.

Don't sell yourself short mate, that's a nice looking E39

The phone takes a decent picture too, not good enough for me to upgrade from my 3GS

Hey Guys I Drive a 2000 528i and my friend recommended that I drop a 350 small block engine into it, I really need help. I'm not sure if it'll fit my car, and my budget is quite tight maybe about $1,500; so if you have any suggestions on what I can put in there to make this car faster for cheap and have it run long please reply, also any engines that aren't to expensive can you please list them Thanks

I love taking pics of my e39 with the 5, the camera is very impressive. Mine doesn't look as good as yours though.
