Such a great shot!


The close up of the paint on the black car really show the horrible orange peel on OEM paint. Cut down the clearcoat with a compound and a polish and that paint will be like glass. Both cars looks amazing!

Great pics. The two cars side by side would make for a great calendar cover.

Actually SideKickChuck it has been polished. The next best thing would be to wet sand it. However, looking at it "live" the Orange Peel cannot be seen that easily. It seems the photoshop combined with the light or lack of, brought it out more.

Very nice photos and two very pretty cars too!

That is a lot of big city. I just took my M5 out into the woods yesterday to take pictures of it, much more of a country person I am.

i always like your picture threads, I recall the last one being in downtown Chicago as well. Great backdrop and the cars look ok too

I think the "orange peel" on the black car may just be some pixelation due to noise from high ISO. overcast/dusk will do that.
