Talking Snow Storm in GA... Makes for great Pictures. (CSL Media Content) *Pic Heavy*

lol Well... I'm sure the whole US has heard about Georgia's "crazy" snow storm... or as most like to call it, the Snowapocalypse of 2014. People definitely went loco from it... lol I have to laugh a little... I'm from the North, so seeing people freak out over 1-3" of snow, is quite funny but happy to see the state come together to help those that got stuck or stranded.

I however took the advantage of the snow for pictures. Soo enough of me talking and onto the pictures.

Since my last posts, the M3 now has a new front bumper/CF lip/Hid Fogs/CF Fog moldings & new Side and Rear badges.

Enjoy and thanks for looking!

Nice shots! But where is the CSL? Looks a really nice modded normal M3 not a CSL as they only were made in grey or black and the seats look normal M3 Seats.

Anyway thanks for sharing the pics! They're awsome and the car is suberb too. IMO I can't get any better than this... (Well maybe a set of BBS LM's)

Nice shots, Shaun but don't forget about white balance..!

These photos are very warm and if they were cooler the physical temperature that you took these photos in would be much better translated.

Here's a gif:

Those photos are excellent.
But let's be clear, that is not a snow storm.

car looks great. and its amazing that you get a dusting to an inch and the whole state comes to a halt. that amount of snow doesnt even cause us Upstate New Yorkers to blink an eye.

people in the North are used to proper snow preparation and follow up, you see the South and laugh, but picture 2" snow/ice on the roads and the State does nothing. No salt treatment, no plowing during the storm, if you are lucky they spread sand (which is great for your cars paint by the way)

Its not the quantity of snow that shuts the south down its the lack of proper prep and cleanup. New Yorkers couldnt drive any better on 2" of ice.

Nice pics and awesome ride. I like the lighting setup.

I'm a northern transplant in the south as well. I'm not complaining though, I'll take the day off of work!

Lol, I drove my xi and it was hilarious. People in the city were spinning wheels and spinning out within a hour of the first snowfall. When I finally broke through the traffic I had miles of open highway (85 south). My normal 20 min drive took 2+ hours never reaching more than 5mph, until I broke free.

I went out drifting and eventually curbed my wheel -_- I'm at the dealer right now getting it aligned.

Bet it was caused by him persistently spinning his wheels trying to get traction

Thank you for the compliments!

Thanks Ryan! I know what you mean with the white balance... for some reason though, i was feeling a little warmth in some of the pictures. That's like an oximoron... lol adding warmth to pictures with snow.

Thank you! Yeah, it is pretty funny, but with no pre-treating or any preparations... that's what did us in.

i think your photos look good but i think you should keep your logo on a balanced corner of the screen. Its a little distracting and perhaps a little to big. Car looks awesome nonetheless
