    yup! no way the software alone would have gotten me near 50hp if it wasn't a turbo.

    So I dont think I told anyone here this, but my mustang was totaled about a year ago. Wasnt my fault.

    Now im rocking a BMW 335xi. Getting new parts in this week that will put it at roughly 400 hp and about 435 lb-tq.

    Ben can I ask why you decided to go with the 335xi w/ awd vs the rwd 335i?

    It handles like a dream. Since the stang was rwd I wanted to go with awd. Both have their perks. No huge reason on going with it though.

    beautiful car.

    This means I need to get around to doing a shoot with my car soon. Which means I need to wash/wax it. Probably going to do that this weekend.

    Just ordered a 5d mark 2. I think a car shoot will be a good first shoot for it. SUPER EXCITED.

    That car is too pretty for matte wheels. Gunmetal or goldies ftw.

    Very nice ride btw.

    OH no. First you shoot a Canon, and now you drive a BMW.
    I'm gonna have to have a talk with you, son. :grumble:


    Just kidding. Nice ride. :beerchug:




    Sweet!

    I'm bringing this thread back from the dead.
    To show off my bitchin new ride! :D
    A 2012 Prius 5! :rofl:

    Yup, I sold the Audi A3.
    With the house move, my commute went from 20 miles roundtrip to 65+!
    With the MPG's I've been getting in the prius I'm saving over $2k annually in gas money, and another $800 in car payments.
    But I'm still gonna have some fun with it! Lowering springs are going on this weekend, I have new forged wheels on order, eventually it will get a body kit, most likely a rear sway bar, and a bunch of other stuff. I already had it tinted, hardwired my V1 radar detector and got a blendmount for it, installed a proclip phone holder for my iphone, and gave it a good detail (claybar, paint prep, and polish). :mrgreen:
