Cars wanted for professional photoshoot - Print ads in Roundel, GRM, Bimmer...

We are looking for local volunteers with cars that want to be featured in our full page magazine advertising. A professional automotive photographer has been hired for this shoot. These ads will be listed in a growing number of magazines, and each month will have a different featured car.

We are looking for a wide range of cars already running the ARC-8 wheels, or magazine/show worthy cars that we can put ARC-8 wheels on for the photoshoot if a customer does not volunteer with that model. Individual photos will be taken, in addition to a group shot. Cars must be clean and damage free with tasteful mods. We'll provide copies of the professionally edited photos after the shoot is complete.

Photos would be taken on either the weekend of March 24th-25th, or March 31-April 1st.

Ideally volunteers will already have ARC-8 wheels.

If you would like to volunteer please let us know. If possible, please post a photo of your car in this thread.


We are looking for the following:

E90 or E92 M3: Must be lowered suspension and have a BBK. If the car already has ARC-8 wheels, then any combination of 9.5/10/10.5" wheels is OK.

E46 M3: Must be on lowered suspension with camber plates. Ideally would already have 18x9.5" ET35 ARC-8 wheels running 265/35/18's on 18x9.5" wheels properly. BBK preferred

E46 non-m: Must be on lowered suspension with camber plates. Ideally would already have 18x9" square setup with 255/35's or 245/35's. BBK preferred.

E36 M3: lowered suspension and camber plates a must. Looking for 17x9" ARC-8's with 245/40/17 or 255/40/17 ARC-8 wheels. BBK preferred

Z3 M coupe: Must have lowered suspension and camber plates. BBK preferred. Would already have or could fit 18x8.5"/18x10.5" setup or 18x9.5"/18x10.5" setup

Z4 M coupe: Must have lowered suspension and camber plates. BBK preferred. Would already have or could fit 18x8.5"/18x10.5" setup or 18x9.5"/18x10.5" setup

What's with the camber plate requirement? Will the photographer be taking pictures of them? If not, I don't understand how anyone could tell.

Since the pics are in regards to wheels, they want them to look as good as possible, therefore the BBK is probably a must.

I agree with that. No reason it would be needed.

Maybe they want a shot of wheels with really aggressive camber?

Or because of aggressive offsets they want camber plates so the wheels are tucked into the front fenders.

Norcal only cars.

We only need one E9X M3.

The E9X M3 car does not need camber plates (not a requirement as listed above).

The other cars need them because there is no way to properly fit the right wheel/tire size without them.

You can put 17x9's with 255's onto an E36 without plates for example, so we can't accept volunteers that can't fit the correct wheel size.
