Thanks for the kind words guys, as far as editing, I'm no professional but I'm learning everytime I edit my photos, so I am just editing to the way that fits my personal preference. The program I used to touch up was Lightroom 4, and essentially for most of my photos, no matter what camera I use, I tend to darken the foreground (sometimes background as well, to a certain extent) and overly highlighted areas and move onto brighten and sharpen my subject in order to make it stand out. It may seem hard but honestly it is not, I am not a patient guy, so I take only about 30 min for each photo touch up on average. So that's just a general guideline I follow, but you guys feel free to discover your own preference, it only takes practice, and that's what I'm doing still, after few years, I still consider myself pretty noob to photography.

I don't think they come in 19s if I'm not mistaken, but honestly the F30 on 20s does not ride harsh at all, since my friend has the dampening control, so cruising in normal, even sport was firm, but not at all harsh.

Can you provide specs on car... Color, wheel type, size, offset, tire size, spring type.

Would be great to be able to reference your car.... Really came out well.

I agree with you guys, the car is such a beauty, we didn't get around to take pictures of the coral red interior and CF M Peformance 6MT shift knob, since it started raining, but soon enough we'll have a follow up session, thanks guys.

I told the owner of this car, who is a actually a member on this forum to chime in, I'm sure he'll post soon enough to provide the specs of the car.
