e90 Sparkling Graphite PhotoShoot - BlackOutTheme

Hi Everyone,

I finally got to the point where I was pleased with the mods I made to my car and therefore hunted a photogropher down to take some shots.

I found Igor @ Acingteam Photography (http://acingteam.com/ | Acingteam Facebook Page) and I think he did a great job with the shots. The bridge location was probably my favorite spot.

The only thing I had Igor Photoshop on my car to enhance the car a bit more was to lower the car in some shots to mask the wheel gap.

I am currently on stock sport suspension, so I needed that extra .5 drop to resemble H&R springs.

Thanks everyone for looking. Appreciate any feedback!!

Mods are nothing original however its my favorite color combo with SGM

Full Mod List:
Matte Black Grille
Black BMW Emblems
20% Tints all around
Headlight Vinyl Overlay
Dinan Exhaust System
Blackline Taillights
Vinyl Black Window Trim
Staggered 19" VMR v710: Matte Black
Full Mtech Body Kit
Daeos Angel Eyes
Lux 5.0 Angel Eyes
Vorsteiner Front Lip

I found this shot discussed on Igor's flickr gallery. This was taken with a 70-200mm f/2.8 Tamron lens. He has a Nikon from what I believe.

I pointed him to this thread in case some more camera/shots questions come up he can help answer.

Thanks for everyone's comments. I appreciate it!! It's taken years of slowly modding to get it to this point so its really good to show the comments have paid off in the work I've done.

Once I drop it with H&R's, I'll look at the setup then and probably throw on some spacers. I'm scared to sacrifice the ride quality just yet!!

It's too shiny.

Just kidding, looks super clean. But what do you mean "once I drop it on H&Rs..." - are you saying that's OEM sport suspension?? I was looking at the mod list wondering what you were riding on because it looks low - lower than my car on Eibachs for sure.

Hey guys, I'm Igor with Acingteam Photography. Decided to join to answer any questions you guys might have. Thanks for all the comments, Mike's car is definitely a head turner and deserves all the compliments!

For this photoshoot I have used 3 different lenses. Majority of the shots, as Mike mentioned, were taken with a Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8. The rig shot was taken with a wide angle Tokina 12-24mm f/4 lens. The profile shot by the wall was taken with a Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5 VR lens. I shoot with a Nikon D90 and have a collection of equipment... it's a never ending addiction, just like car modding which is another hobby of mine.

It sits on OEM sport suspension. As mentioned above the mod list, I had Igor Photoshop my ride height in some shots to give it a more aggressive stance, however everything else on the car is true to the pictures.

Sorry for the misleading but this is going on my desktop so I wanted it to look nice!!!! :-P

Haha, gotcha. I just skipped over the body of text to get to the pics! As for dropping the car, H&Rs will lower you a lot more than .5". The drop is unquestionably under-rated. Why not go for B&Gs? They're not quite as low as H&Rs (in spite of the specs) and supposed to be a much more comfortable ride.
