You should get one! My car gets a fair bit of friendly attention, it always raises eyebrows, and most people are shocked that it's a manual.

Pic is too dark and over-edited with blacks with no detail. Vignetting is too harsh and obvious, gradation isn't smooth. Horizon is crooked.

-1 from last time because you haven't improved it since your last grade.

8/10 blacked out grill doesn't match anything else on your car, also I'd get an mtech 2 on that puppy. Reminds me of my car in the early stages.

8/10 - Lighting does not accentuate the car's presence. Love the low and clean set up.

Damn I should fix the horizon, but I like the way the darkness effects look I know it does make the picture less crisp and such but I like it.

Thanks.

6/10 ... Lighting isn't working IMO, Lots of detail is lost on the rear end and lower side of the car... Not feeling the vignette/Frame either.

What's up with the tint?...

Sigs will never do this car justice, you gotta see it in person to really enjoy its beauty

Love your ride btw... Wish you could tuck away those tires under the fenders a little more for a more impactfull stance. Gorgeous nonetheless!
