I attribute it to the lens, camera and a lot of clicks

Looking forward to seeing more sunset pics after Dave gets some practice and drop his F10... stock height looks so high!

I know! I'm still waiting for the stupid Eibach's to come out! Haha! I told myself that I would be patient, but it's killing me. Sometimes, I'm just ready to say forget it and do the H&R's. Lol!

The Ritz is about 45 degrees more to the left... the kapalua Bay course goes around it... both are amazing golf courses to play.

Also go to Merriman's on the point (probably one of the top 3 restuarants on maui), and a great photo spot at dusk. This Peter Lik photo, from that location, hangs in my house...

And not to be a total thread jacker... Get a Circular Polarized filter for your DSLR... it is amazing what it will do to clouds in the background, and with some skill you can vary which bends and highlights on your car you can pick up or subdue....

They don't have it. I purchased last month and they canceled the order right away without noticing me. After calling them, they confirmed Eibach hasn't released the spring yet. Their price on the website is also wrong.

That is lame! Haha! Oh well. I'm sure that they will be out soon enough. In the mean time there's other stuff to do to the car.

I wonder why it takes so long. I remember seeing some other guy from Australia had put the Eibach spring on.

It could be just limited to the US market or they are still testing it.

Perhaps the road condition here is much worst than everywhere else and they are still struggling to find the best spring rate.

Took some more new pictures tonight

Dudes, took some more pix tonight after I got off of work. Been having a lot of cloudy and rainy weather here in San Diego these past few days, so I've been waiting for the next best opportunity.

I had to resize these ones again cause they were too big. You can really tell the difference since I blacked out the door handle chrome last week. Looks pretty good. Although I am still considering going back to chrome side grills. The matte black side grills seem to not stand out enough to me. I dunno.

This time I broke out the old tripod and messed around with some of the shutter speed and aperature size settings. I think they came out alright.

Again, you can download the super hi-res versions of these photos here on my Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/91527770@N06/


Hope you enjoy!
