Most of those pictures look like they were taken with an iphone..not sure whats with all of the labels. The badge and stickers look ridiculous on a stock car. for a silver sedan.

Car would look so much better without the tow hook, euro plate, m badge and stickers.

As for photography, this was a good first try but I'd suggest looking online for a few tutorials on composition and techniques. What camera are you using?

Thanks for the feedback man! I'm actually not taking the pics it's my friends and he's using a Nikon L820! Cheap but gets the job done.

thankfully, to go back to stock would only take about 3 minutes. you should think about pursuing that.

Are you 17 or younger? If so I'll refrain from saying mean things about why stock tow hook is on.

It does seem rather silly...

Dude posts a bunch of pics in a public forum and then passive-aggressively mocks the feedback he receives.

I don't Understand all I wanted to do was post the best pics I had of my e46 and now all I'm getting is criticism about my car. What a good way to start my forum...

Personally, I can appreciate that.

The gents and ladies on this forum know a lot about your car. If you do something silly, they'll get at you for it. If you don't want your work to be judged, go back to being a non-forum member and avoid it.

The only difference is that members here will voice their opinions, where as out in the great wide world the majority of people will just agree... Never telling you what they actually think. Especially if they aren't in the BMW game.

Thanks for the feedback... That does make sense so I guess I'll just listen to what people have to say and not to respond to them...

^^^ Unfortunately that's probably the best tactic on this forum. Sometimes responding only feeds those certain few. The thing about a public forum is that anything you post is up for criticism and that goes for everyone so there will always be difference in opinions. Enjoy the car and continue sharing. Photography takes a lot of trial and error. Keep at it and you'll be amazed at what you can do with even a $100 camera.

Just curious of the mindset.
