Thanks to the holiday I got to go for a nice cruise this morning down to the water. I was taking some pictures and my car somehow managed to get in some of them so here it is. 05/02/21.









If you have recent pictures of your ride, post them.

i like that one under the bridge! nice pics!!
Yeph, i really like that one too, the only thing there - car need more light, but i know - you can't move the sun and flash wouldn't work.

That was the first time I'd ever been under that bridge since they built it a couple years ago. Certainly the sun did suck in a major way this morning. I will go back there with my tripod and some time and try again someday.

Here's some shots of my ride before and after new rims & tires, silver painted calipers (didn't do rear yet), chrome exhaust tip and side indicator frames. Haven't gotten to putting my H&R springs in yet...

BTW, Goodyear Eagle F1's kick ass! Went from stock 16's to 18's and the ride is better(!), quieter, and traction is awesome.

No post processing - I used my Canon EOS-1D with a 24-70mm F2.8L lens, shot at F2.8, that's why the background is blurred. The shots where the background is clear were shot at F8 or F10.

Should I have a Kompressor badge on the trunk? I've seen a lot of 230's without one, and a few with one. Was that an addition to a particular year?

isn't the kompressor trunk script for sport models since they have sport/avantgarde badge on the front fenders?

btw...darktec...i like your shots!...the pic infront of that house is stunning...

and where did you get the Brabus style wheels? [:D]

Actually that house is the cavalry museum here on Ft. Riley, but yeah, that's my favorite shot too, looks aggressive there.

The wheels/tires I got off of Ebay for....$912 w/o shipping. Good deal if you ask me, since the Goodyear F1 tires are brand new and go for $212 each at tire rack.

BTW, those are 245-35-18 all around, and yes, 245 on the front doesn't rub!

I originaly bought the set just for the tires, and was going to get those new SL65 style rims and swap the brabus type out, but I'm debating it now.

I'm attaching a pic of my dream car with the rims in question, should I get these or keep the ones I have?

@ darktek...the 245s will probably rub (in the front) once you lower the car...[;)]
