New pictures of Mike, no wait, I mean Mika! (Ongoing Picture Thread)

Bonus points for those that get the Eurotrip reference.

Here's some more shots that I have been collecting and am just now posting them up. These pictures were taken with my old Nikon that I'm getting ready to sell. I just bought a new Nikon DSLR. So hopefully as my skill improves I'll be able to capture some better shots. More to come! Enjoy!

Fantastic pics. You have finally got an American license plate.

Is it meant to be Nurburgring M5?

You got it Stealth! NurburgringM5!

I figured it's apropriate since it's about 1 of only 2 American F10 M5's that I know of that has driven on the Nurburgring. As a matter of fact I talked with the other guy who drove his American F10 M5 on the Nurburgring, today on the phone. Lol!

I got a chance to get some more shots with my new Nikon today after I got off work. With the sun setting later and later, it is getting easier to catch the sunset when I get off of work. These pix are of tonights sunset on the Pacific Ocean. I shrunk the images down so they can fit on Bimmerpost, but if anyone wants hi-res then you can go to my Flickr page:

Hi Dave. New guy here. Can you tell me what tint you have on your car? I have a black sapphire metallic just like yours and am getting my windows tinted this Saturday. Yours look great! I would like to copy it!

I did 15% tint all the way around. I didn't do any tint on the windshield though. I can't wait until I can find time to get rid of the chrome on the door handles though.

nice! It looks like I may do that tint too! I'm going to hold off on tinting the windshield too. the CHP will definitely get me for that. you are going for the blacked out look I see. I like it! very nice M5 Dave!

Yes blacked out and not murdered out. I'm not doing the wheels. In fact I'm thinking about powder coating the wheels to a matte silver, or essentially the same scheme as the E60 M5 wheels. I think it'll make the wheels stand out more. Thanks for the comments!

I'm not a fan of that murdered out look... yes! please go with the matte silver wheels. I think that will be a great compliment to the car! The only thing I ask of you is, if you do that, I want more high res pictures!

I like the color of CPIGuy's wheels. I also agree that it is a nice contrast to the black paint and the door handle replacement should be on everyone's list.

need to extend the exposure or if you have a bright lens, open your aperture.
