Thanks Neill for the compliments.


My lighting setup is far less stellar than some you will see, but I do try to make sure I am getting sharp and properly exposed shots every time out. There are plenty that go untouched for whatever fault.

I give credit where credit is due, and you have definitely earned it. I guess you are still getting the shaft on bf.c? That's fvcking lame as hell my friend. But Casey, what's this $400 picture I have been reading about?

Looking forward to it, unfortunately I haven't gotten the chance to take a snow photo yet

The $400 photo is in response to a moderator and several members complaining that my photos do not fit into "the theme" well enough. I have purchased some theme to get across my message of winter wonderland in SoCal, which also included the purchase of a carnival sized sno cone machine off of craigslist.

Yeah I don't ever go out with the intention of taking a picture that fits the "theme" per se. I just see what the theme is and see if any of my pictures fit it well enough as to not get shunned

I joined the 3 Series club today and took delivery of a 2001 325CI. I was quite impressed with the quality of the vehicle and it's condition. The only thing missing is the third pedal. I don't think the dealer will mind me posting their picture, more images to follow. I am dreaming of 18" M6 Reps and other small modifications.

PLEASE DO NOT QUOTE THIS POST

Some of you guys like to quote posts filled with pictures even though you are the comment right below, there is no point to that

Not related to the interior but exciting nonetheless, just some pictures

thanks!

It's just that flickr is crazy when it comes to linking pictures elsewhere and if you don't do it the right way, they take your pictures down.

Just a teaser of what i've been up to. I recently two toned my front doors using Duplicolor's fabric and vinyl paint. The rear doors are yet to come. Sorry for the crap pictures. They're cell phone pics, recently got a new computer and I haven't uploaded my nikon or photoshop software yet. I'm a slacker!

Anyways, what do you think?

driver's side recently painted

passenger side installed

The rings around my mid speakers are broken on both doors, I'm currently looking for oem/comp replacements. The speakers and speaker covers/rings are one unit. If anyone is upgrading theirs, I would love to get your old oems! Prefer black.

Ryans323i, the panel painting turned out great! Any tips for separating the door cards? Or did you even separate them?

Monkey, needs a drop srsly. Have you considered getting paint matched vinyl tape and redoing your bumper trim? Otherwise looking good!

That's because you're spending too much time on the other BMW forums.






Trick, he has 18's, but remember that he has an XI.

This is a non-XI with 18's and stock suspension
