Good morning guys, long time reader, first time poster...Here are some pics of my car. I just got a new camera Sony DSC-H10, and I am a noob at taking pics. Give me some advice on taking great shots if you can :p I'll start going to local meets as the season starts. I am going to add pics as I take them, let me know what you think.






*Edit* Sorry the images are so damn big, I don't have photoshop on my work computer and I am using a new program that I cannot optimize images with :(
*Edit 4-9-09 added more pics*




*EDIT 11-2-09 Added pics of me at Englishtown Road Course*

if you have wood interior then i don't suggest the F-Sport Shift Knob and you don't need to go to a tint shop for the redouts... do them yourself... takes about 5 minutes and even a 2 yr old can do it ;)

VERY NIIICE BRO!!! Haha i thought i was looking at my car because I got the X-Package with the same rims and front lip (Except its an 09). Always makes me smile when I see a clean IS. ;) Are you planning on tinting your windows?

The first pic you took looks niiice, but IMO, try crouching and taking a shot like how I did with mine....

You cant get this package with the AWD because of the staggered wheel size :( Yeah dude I am trying to learn how to take pics, I am a noob!

it almost looks like you have a trim over your fenders? i say a clean drop and some painted calipers should be next :approve:
Yeah, I threw on a trim to protect fenders because some jackass slammed their door into that exact area. I kept getting chips around there, so when I went to body shop I had them throw those on. It is very stealth in person, I am not sure if I am going to leave it on though.

I am thinking about painting calipers, but I am a noob heh. I might have to try it in the summer. As for a drop, X-Package allegedly came with a better suspension? I might have to pick up the F-Sport springs/Shocks.


Are you planning on tinting your windows?
They already are tinted heh, 35% all around from the dealer. Tints are all the way to the tip of the glass. I should have gone a little darker since I have a beige interior. I don't like tint that is too dark.

shits weak.
<3 you too Tom :D

OooO I have no idea what kind of wheels they throw on then heh. Maybe they leave 225's all around with X-Package style wheels? I gotta check your thread lol

Looks hot, I was going to get those rims also but the sales person told me they don't come with all season tires. I get a nice mix of shit weather where I am so I didn't do it.

I live in NY also, I didn't realize they were summer tires until after I bought them. I ended up buying a set of winter rims and I have 0 worries in the winter now :D

btw check your sig for typo on "back on black"
