    A few E30 rain shots w/an E36 M3 to boot

    So, devon and I found this parking garage earlier this week and figured it'd be a really sweet spot for a photoshoot and the best part is that it's like 10 minutes from our house.

    So, I drove down there today solo to do some pictures and I got a few before a fucking rent-a-cop informed me it was 'private property' and that I had to leave immediately (this happened the first time devon and I were there). I was nice to him and told him I was in photo 3 taking pictures for my portfolio, etc but the jackass (he really was being an ass, I had to bite my tongue) wouldn't let me stay.

    I only did two different poses since I was messing with exposure times since it's wasn't lit extremely well and here are the results. I am pretty pleased but I really wish I could have stayed and done a lot more shooting but thats life. Later I messed around with shop lights and my parents M3 right after it stopped raining (momentarily). I also screwed around with guages and long exposures.

    Enjioy :)

      I really don't know, it probablly means "Go to your local BMW Dealership and spend ungodly amounts of money on a tune-up you probablly don't even need"? :D

        its set up to come one after a certain mileage, they can be reset with a reset tool or you can connect two terminals of the big round plug under the hood bolted to the IM, its just a little reminder thing

        Your signature picture has been removed since it contained the Photobucket "upgrade your account" image.

          Nice pics. I like the reflection of the car in the water a lot. Exposures look great.

          Out of curiousity, what lens did you use? There looks to be a lot of barrel distortion, unless the beams in the parking garage are actually bent.

          Let's drive fast and have fun.

                  I'm just using the stock lense thats on the D-Rebel and thanks for the compliments!

                  Antrieb,
                  It's a the 6MP Canon Digital Rebel, so I believe it's code name is the 300D. I borrow this camera from my Photo 3 class and I plan on buying an 8MP Rebel XT by the end of this semester :)

                    It means you need either an inspection 1 or 2 depending on the miles. From his mileage it looks like he needs an inspection 2 which consist of oil change, plugs, all visual inspection stuff BMW recommends, lube hinges, diff oil change, fuel filter change, and a couple other things like air and cabin filter changes. I do these services all day long at a independent BMW shop.

                      Thanks again for the compliments. I'm still pissed that the rent-a-cop there wouldn't even let me stay for another 5-10 minutes so I could some more shots and leave. NO ONE was there so it's not like I was getting in the way of traffic but he's got that rent-a-cop ego. Oh well, I'm sure there are more parking garages near me, but I'm sure none of them will be as close as that one. There were 2-levels that had no roof and backed up to the freeway so I could have gotten some pretty cool long-exposures at night, oh well.

                      Maybe I'll bring some scantily-clad dressed young lass with me next time I go to buy me a couple more minutes ;)
