      It was white. It looked like it might have a very subtle front valence.

      Nice!, you going to post pics up or what?

      Also, how's the job prospect search coming along?

      Thanks. It's not too shabby for having 27500 miles on it and going through 2 winters. A lot of rock chips on the front though.

      car looks nice.

      if i may suggest a few basic things about the photos...

      - work on the white balance (leave it on auto). see the yellowish looking shots?
      - a lot of your photos are under-exposed. use the light meter and compensate by messing around with shutter speed/aperture.

      that should get you started in the right direction.

      agreed. just out of curiosity do you have a lens hood on your camera or is that an after effect on the corners?

      Yesterday I saw a lot.

      8:45am, white 996 911 GT3 heading west on 14 right by Portillos in CL, Vette behind it.

      8:50am, TR MkV 2 door GTI heading east on 14 in same general area.

      10:45am, black MkIV GLI

      1:30pm, Salsa Red MkV GLI with a cute chick driving

      1:30pm, MkV BMP GTI on Randall near Mchenry Ave.

      I was in a demo with all of these spottings.

      Bunch of MkV GTI's heading west on I90 between 3:15 and 3:45 as well. And a countless amount of Audi's and VW's in Chicago.

      Not to sound like a dork, but did you get pulled over? How much is the fine? Was the cop a jerk or anything?

      yeah he clocked me at 101. everything said and done i was out a grand. i paid $500 for a lawyer (best investment ever) $400 in fines and fees and $50 for traffic school. the judge was ready to throw the book at me (talking possible jail time) but since my lawyer made a deal with the prosecutor i got off easy. the cop was alright. he didn't like the fact i wouldnt admit to how fast i was going

      why is this in here?

      so confused

      anyways, Matt do you mind taking down some of the pictures you took because half of them are the same photo over and over again. and its hard to read new posts when your pictures load and keep my screen scrolling. thanks
