So I had my brothers camera on me and took some pictures, it was at night with street lighting which made the pics come out not as great as I wanted. However my car has never been in a picture since owner 1 and thought it was about time for at least one [:p]

I know the pictures are bad but just posting them up for fun

I think my car will look a lot better once I paint the valences and get some OEM 17's

ha yeah I'm going to get a s4 or rs4 bumper in the future when the funds provide it, but it's no biggie right now as long as my runs fine and my bumpers on tight. And that's not a ghost haha...that's me I took a long exposure and was going to stand in front of the car so you could see me and the car through me but I was standing too close to the camera so my head got chopped off.

Naw, it's a person. You just need to do a really long exposure with a really narrow aperture (or something like that). You stand there for a few sec, and then run away quickly and let it finish taking the picture for like 30-40 sec.

That is priced right on. I sold a couple working at A&P for $600 shipped. Rebar, grills, and washer covers.

I'm just going to hope someone is selling a silver s4 bumper or parting a s4 out to get it for a cheaper price since I don't need it asap

Learn how so set manual white balance on your camera and you will be on the way to taking better nighttime pictures.
