Went out to take some good shots today of the DXB

hope you like, weather was cloudy but some pics still show up the Monaco Blue really well

all around my local countryside and a couple of in town


























check out the broken branch on that fooker













i really like this shot above, colour looks really deep





























oh and i came across this golf, tight bend and went through a hedge dropped 20-30ft down and rolled, man he musta been going fast, this particular stretch of road was my favourite when i was 17-20, no one could touch me down there, i never crashed there but it is a dangerous road.. seen a police car upside down (about 300 yards up from this) a r5gtt upside down, and a mate once crashed where this guy did but the metal fence caught him and spun him round into the road












hope you like my pics, camera aint too hot but i try and capture the best angles and light with it

Carlos

Funny, must be my eyes, but it looked black in a lot of the pics.

Nice pics none the less though Carlosmakesdavidbaileysuck.

Mine is approx. 4 months old and have done 3k odd miles. However.... that is unusually high for me now - there have been a few long driving trips in there I don't normally do. My car usually comes out at weekends then perhaps once maybe twice during the week.

C'mon z4 'fess up!!!!

I can't.

Lets just say when I trade in my cars, the dealers are amazed at the mileage... I get the impression they think I've hacked into the odometer

come on fess up ..is it run in yet?

I once had a brand new 205GTi 1.9 and sold after 36 months absolutely unmolested and mint with just 14k on the clock fro a bargain 5.5k....why did I not just keep it.

Then again I traded it in for a Dolphin grey E30 325i M sport (when M sport meant more than a body kit and wheels).
