1013MM.com/John Zhang Stunning F10 535i Photos

John Zhang of www.1013MM.com took these stunning photos of Kevin's modified F10 535i

I recently got together with Kevin to finally shoot his car. We've been meaning to get together for a shoot ever since last year before he switched to this beautiful new 2011 535i. This car looks and feels very classy, so I didn't try to do too much to these photos. I did use a different lens and editing style if you guys can tell though. I'm hoping it looks much more clean, natural, and less "fake". I've been experimenting a lot lately and this is what I came up with. Although I must admit, I could really resist, so in a couple of the photos, they look a little more edited than the others. Some of the locations were chosen by Kevin himself and I must say, I think the shoot and location turned out to be a good match! Enjoy!

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You da man. Beautiful car and beautiful photographs. The horizontal fins in the lower front air intake should be painted white in the opinion of this architect. Very cool car. If I lowered my F10 550 like that would it create problems with my lease? Does lowering the F10 work with the dynamic handling package? Your car looks so much better lowered like that than the stock height.
