Since I submitted a different photo in the calendar thread, I'll put this one in here. It's from the reject pile...



Seemed like every time I went out to take photos, the sun came out, which ruins everything.

Karl, this photo actually has a ton of potential. That wood grain is beautiful and reflects nicely in the black paint. Maybe a little wider of a shot and a touch off level, but nothing major at all! I guess it helps having a super clean car. Everytime I take a picture of my car, it makes me hate everything.

Sort of. Not without major surgery to get rid of harshness. Best time for photos is dusk and/or dawn, or when it's cloudy. Otherwise, it this photo would require tons of photoshopping to get rid of all the crazy reflections.

Thanks for the kind words guys. My last one was Alpine White and it was terribly hard to switch to silver, but I couldn't pass up such a clean, well cared for M3. Since my intentions were to add a bit of power to it from the get go, I didn't want anything that had been abused or needed work.

New to the forums, picked this up with a hair under 100k miles on it.
For the most part, the stuff i wanted to do under the hood are done up until spring
Next too go on are
-Lorenzo's(Matte Black)
-HSD coils(eventually)
-Black option HL's/TL's
-Then prob go with the full M3 kit(Cousin has one laying around, said mine if i want it) or the VIS Racing Illusion Body Kit

Its def a work in progress, and i will be sure to get some better pictures aha
