very nice.. the model actually looks decent too haha.. usually its the models that ruin the picture.. is that the icarbon lip? Looks very nice.. I'd change the rims though lol.. it looks to plan.. with some better rims your car will look even hotter.

I'm sorry you didn't like the background, this was the look we were going for this shoot.

Yes she's a model but I didn't hire her because she's a friend and was happy to help me out.

Nope, she's Aussie. I don't think the entire flag fits on 1 side.

The goal was to keep it simple yet aggressive without ricing out the car.

Yes it is the iCarbon lip. The wheels are from Alufelgen and I expected the gunmetal colour to be much darker.

I will be changing over to SF-71's in 19 inch matte black when they are released. I think it will make a huge improvement. Thanks for your feedback.

Fantastic pictures. Love the headlights. Oh, the ones on your 1er aren't half bad either.

Make sure you bring her along to the next meet/photoshoot.
