You are spot on.

It would've been fine to re-use the original 3.0 CSL shark nose, which is both classic and gorgeous.

They sell these models at the BMW Welt and Museum. I've also seen them for sale on ebay.de Yeah... they sell for 99 euros.

Perhaps a dealer can order them for you. I would also think Leebmann24.de or Schmiedmann.com also sell them. ?

See the BMW part numbers on post #325 above a few posts.

I struggled like hell to get some half decent photos, I tried two white models first but I couldn't get it right.

I saw a thread on the 2addicts forum and they think that us 1 Series owners “hate” the 2 Series, I don’t like the look of the 2 Series as much as a 1 Series but that doesn’t mean that I hate it.

The odd thing was that the camera struggled to focus on the 2 Series and I wanted to create clear photos.

What camera did you use?

I am not clever enough to adjust the exposure and aperture modes in Macro mode

I think it was harder for the camera to focus on two models compared to just one model on its own, I also think that photographing either white or black models on a white background didn't help me.

I am curios if it will be easier to try again when the Green M2 comes out as I already have a green 1M.

I also use a Portable 40cm Camera Studio Lighting Kit as well.

^Isn't your background white?

Seems that the camera's white balance is incorrect.

Yeah you are right it is a white background, I sadly took the photos on Auto mode again

The cloth in the centre of the Camera Studio is removable so I can wash it.

I may buy another Camera Studio as the outsides have discoloured as I have left it out too long without putting it away, they only cost about £15.00 on eBay

I will upload a photo of the USA long card when I see a photo, so far I have only spotted the International long card and the European short card.

I tried manual mode with the camera settings as well but I found the photos came out the same as in Auto.

I did not alter the white balance, I have now just found out how to change it so I will give it a go next time.
