Thumbs up New Pics of King Tut's Le Mans Blue E92

A local guy who loves shooting cars asked to take photos of my car and here are the results. He had a very impressive 4 flash on tripod setup with multiple lenses and was shooting just after dusk into night. He said he takes multiple shots with the flashes lighting up the car and then merges them together. I think these shots really show the beauty of this paint color and how when the light hits it it looks much lighter than most people think of it. These are the first shots I have had taken with the new 275/295 tire setup. As always comments and questions are welcome:

I love your car, man. You've modded it just like you spec'd the original car: you kept it simple and all about the performance. I'm a big fan of the black on blue without going over the top.

How's the ride on the new tires? I've considered dropping down to a lower aspect ratio to run wider rubber, but I don't want the ride to suffer too much.

I don't think I've seen pictures capture LeMans so well before, they look great

So are you able to run a lot of negative camber up front with that size? I would like to run more rubber as well

The ride is rough, I'm not gonna lie. I did get the stiffer H&R springs though which is most of the harshness. It doesn't bother me, but it would bother some. I really don't think going from a 35 series to a 30 series will be a noticeable change.

I would think you can run as much negative as you want. I don't have camber plates or anything to try it and the car is aligned to the factory specifications without any rubbing anywhere lock to lock. As long as you stick with a 275/30/19 and have the proper offset you should be fine.
