AwesomeM3s Blue and Skierman64s Grey coupes together

I was playing with the settings on my camera and accidentally had the tungsten light white balance compensator turned on from a previous photo shoot, so only 1/2 of the pictures I took came out properly. Here are some good ones.

Will photoshop or any other program fix the tungsten light compensation issue?

Today in South Jersey.

I dig!

I do prefer the 19's though.

I'm curious... is there a significant difference in ride comfort between the 18" and 19" wheels on the same EDC setting? What about steering feel?

Wow. Nice pics. Seeing two together like that in one place outside the dealer would definitely make me turn my head.

Hope you get Pshop to work for you. Good luck.

Great shots. Both look menacing in their way. I'll take Ski's to the track and Awe's to Vegas.

I too am interested to hear what the difference is between the 18" and the 19" in combination with EDC.

Photoshop can help with some color balance and/or levels but unless you shot it RAW format, you cant change the WB.

Pics from AwesomeM3

Here are my favorite pictures that I took today.

Skierman took me for a ride in his DCT M3...the shifts were unbelievably quick and smooth. I also noticed a smoother ride with the 18's compared to my 19's.

Mine will be at the track by the end of the summer. There's a new track in S. Jersey and it's only an hour away. How sweet is that?

Awesome, great pics too. We might have to reshoot sometime in May, since I screwed up some of mine with camera operator error.

I hope we can get 4 or 5 of us together, that will be very cool.
