Gorgeous long exposure shot. I take it there was a good deal of post-processing done to get the colors that vibrant? That being said, they still look incredibly natural, so it's the good kind of post-processing.

Northern Va is a lot nicer then the southern region that I am living in. There is a little less people and congestion up there. Until you get to DC. that is.

Vacation Rental Maine?

Hi all I am from Scotland but living in Houston, TX. I am hoping to bring my family up to ME for vacation and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations? There are so many rentals on the web it is hard sometimes to find a really nice one that would suit a family of 6. Hoping to come up over summer/late summer of maybe early fall. Would appreciate any advice/guidance. Thanks

Samoset in Rockport is nice i hear. It's right on Penobscot bay. Never been personally.

Understand Maine is pretty rural. Not a lot of action. More of a getaway.

Have a great vacation!

After going back and forth between coils and these shocks, and bugging many members on here, I finally decided on the Bilsteins as well. Ordered from BavAuto due to free shipping and no sales tax. Ssshhh don't tell the wife

STV, I've been going to Rockport the last 3 summers, it's a great little town. I've played golf at Samoset, it's a really nice resort and a great golf course. There are a couple other courses nearby as well. I have a friend who has a house up in Rockport, but if I didn't know anyone up there I'd definitely check out Samoset if I had $$ to burn. Otherwise find a house to rent for a week.

Thank you Toasty. Will check it out. How are the beaches, are they nearby. I have a 2 year old who loves the beach/water?

Flag runner

A group of young Japanese girls decide to run towards their friend as she approaches the finish line at the 2011 Boston Marathon. She must have been overwhelm by their support/finishing the race that she started to tear up.

Shot my car on the CCWs this evening during sunset in NJ. Edits will have to wait until I get back to Photoshop on my PC at home.
My KWs ride great, but I'm not happy with the height up front. I'm going to have to spin them all the way down and it's still not low.

I got a buddy with a silver E92 with KW and it can't go as low as mine too...

My KWs are low and still have room to go

I haven't compared, but maybe the V3s use shorter housings than the V1s.

One of these days I'm going to figure out how some of you guys drive around these parts with lowered cars. I have my KW v2s at the highest recommended settings(meaning 0.6inch drop all around) and I STILL freak out when going over a bump. I swear I'm right at the limit where I'd scrape the crap out of everything.
