    Evening all,

    I'm back from the photoshoot so I thought i'd post up a bit of info/pics for anyone interested.

    What can I say, some of the machinery was stunning. Apparently there was another barn full of metal but I only saw the ones surrounding the studio:

    A bit about the shoot: It will be appearing in the March issue of BMWCar (sold in Feb). The article is about cheap M cars accessible for under 10K. It will give an incite into servicing costs/maintenance and hopefully put to bed any rumours that they are all money pits etc... The shoot includes 5 cars: Z3MR, E34 M5, E39 M5, E36 M3 and E46 M3. It will include a cover photo of all 5 M cars together. So buy a copy!!

    The real pics will be sent to me on CD next month, ill post them up when I can. The shoot was inside only.

    Some of the equipment you can see in the shots above, not sure what SLR/lens they were using I was too busy drooling over the e30. :lol: They were using lightroom for some of the postwork though

    Shanty,

    We would be delighted to set you up a tribute Gallery in the front end website! Would make a nice feature.

    Do you get permission to use them online?

    Let me or Board know if you are interested.

    Gary
