      Probably anywhere between 50-60 hours, not to bad.

      That car is not a turbo.. A regular carrera with a gt3 spoiler and not so functional mods

      This is my car, all mods are functional for track and performance

      YES, always, people are really bad at this and think it's no big deal.

      Then they wonder why we start putting huge watermarks all over stuff. Obviously copyright is done as soon as the shutter is clicked, that picture is the photographers property. People don't look, but there is a little button on facebook that asks "do you own the copyrights to this image etc etc" most people don't see it and just upload. But if a photographer really wanted he could sue the **** out you for even uploading it.

      PLEASE if you are going to upload a photo credit the photographer or even just use the "share" option from his/her page.

      i like how so many get all butthurt because of this.
      everyone just craves attention for some reason but the bottom line is if you build your car to get in a mag or video (or win shows) then your doing it wrong

      No problem, and thank you! If you like my facebook page "bsaintmedia" I post a lot of behind the scenes stuff, from shooting to editing. And of course finished product as soon as it's online.

      I'm just getting into photography, half my posts lately have been asking recommendations for a nice camera, most people replied back about a cannon with a good lens, I've really been admiring everyone's pics. I love all the different angles on the cars, rolling shots and love the different backgrounds. All my photo projects in the past were of animals and nature, so getting into car photography is a whole new beast hahaha.

      Keep it up you will get better and better as it goes Crissy. Photography was my major, but I stopped taking real pics years ago when my hands started getting the shakes.

      I pretty much followed all of those steps and haven't seen one pic of my 200 yet, other then step 5 (my own pics). I guess the older Audi's don't get love like they should.

      Hey ****heads. If your car is worth being photographed, it will be. Bunch of whiney children here... "I saw people shooting my car all week, but nothing posted" blah blah blah. Yea, they may have pointed and clicked but then they threw that malarkey into photoshop and found nothing worth putting their name on. Go back to the drawing board and build something worth writing home about you entitled little kids.

      You mad bro? No, you kids suck at building cars.

      sorry man, but if this is the car you are talking about



      It looks good and looks clean. There is nothing really unique about it though. Not trying to bash the car at all, but it looks fairly stock. some wheels and a conservative drop. Kind of a dime a dozen. If it drove by me it wouldn't stick out...

      Obviously everyone builds their cars for other reasons, I like fairly mild looking cars and mod mine pretty mild. However that's not what photographs or video's well. Not to mention the front plate, unless it's a euro plate I almost always avoid shooting cars with front plates. It takes away from the front end like crazy. Regardless of what it says.

      I understand that for sure. Exterior wise it looks like a clean old Audi, and that won't draw enough attention. The uniqueness comes with the rarity of this model as there were only 300 or so sold in the US, however that wouldn't be known by 99% of the H2Oi crowd. No big deal, and I'm not complaining about minimal pics taken of my car, I ended up finding a bunch more after that post anyway.

      I, like you like a mild build (show anyway). Im more about the performance anyway. The car has ~500hp and runs 11 second quarter miles times. All with over 300k on the cluster.

      It was a bit flashier then that pic for H2O also wearing staggered BBS RS-GT's and much lower (then in the pic you posted):



      Thanks for responding in a mature manner (unlike the above poster)! Lol.

      No worries and I'm right there with you man, I have an LS1 swapped E36 M3 cammed and tuned to 420whp, I'm refreshing a lot of the car and trying to keep it for a long time to come so I totally understand. Mine looks fairly stock as well, doesn't have $3k wheels or crazy camber. nothing unique about mine other then the color and the swap. And I'm okay with not seeing tons of pictures of mine, I'd almost rather take my car to a cool location and shoot it myself. But just trying to share some tips and pointers to help.
