Took a few of mine earlier to get a comparison most on normal settings a few with camera set to vivid+warm colours (you`ll spot them by how yellow the pics are-just for effect-rest are natural)












below took with flash on.



Dasco mate close........but no cigar

what do you all reckon on the finish

Those Front calipers would look better with white subaru.

Just a thought

Top car
