gave her a bath today

Figure I'd post a couple pics, just got all my emblems switched to black and white. Had some paint correction done recently also.

Any comments, questions are welcome. Also would appreciate tips on taking pictures with DSLR cameras, because I kinda suck at it.

Hey I'm really not sure about the size, I ordered them on eBay and it was listed for E90's. I taped around the emblems (two layers) and used a heat gun to get them nice and warm, then GENTLY pried them off with a small screw driver. If I remember correctly the rear one didn't even have sticky tape under it.

looks good! nice to see something different than the normal CSL reps. look up the "rule of thirds", composition can make a world of differnce when taking pictures. Also, time of day can make a huge differnece as well...pictures tend to look a lot better when taken during the "golden hour". this is right after the sun comes up or and hour or two before it sets.

Mess around with shooting pictures manually... if you start taking pictures later in the day you might have to adjust the shutter speed and aperture. You can even leave it on autofocus at first if all the adjustments are too overwhelming.

finding a good location can help as well. a background that compliments the color of your car or wheels will make your car look better. the background should be interesting but not distracting in a sense that the viewers attention should still be focused on your car.

Great looking car mate. The exhaust is a nice addition and the car looks planted without looking to aggressive. Nice look overall

Thank you! But I think I prefer the silver bars in the middle. Will think about this.
