Jet Black E92 Photoshoot

Got a chance to clean up the car, and a local friend and m3post member was kind enough to take some shots after cars and coffee this weekend. Big thanks to Frank. His white M3 is in some of the pictures.

I need to resize these pictures ASAP.
























Criticism welcome

Nice car. Are the 19's on your car replicas? They look a little different in the pics. Looks good anyway.

Not reps, if you look closely you can see he got the OEM 19s powder coated on the inside really making the spokes stand out.

Thanks

And, he's right. They're the OEM wheels, I just had the inside of the wheels powdercoated a matte black. The OEM color is more of a gunmetal.

Thanks, everyone, for the kind words

The reason why his car is abnormally freakin' shiny is because he had a comprehensive Zaino detail done the day before!

Thirty-three man hours worth... haha.

Couldn't you have just told them I'm really handy with a microfiber towel?

I can't decide whether I want to go all black with the wheels. Any thoughts?

I think you should stick with silver or gunmetal wheels. Black wheels would be just too dark on your car. Plus, you'd probably get pulled over more often for looking like a drug dealer.
