Thumbs up

The pictures look great, especially since when I saw the title of the post I was expecting something totally different. More along the lines of "please bow your heads for a moment of silence."
I did notice in the 1st and 3rd picture it appears that only the driver's fog light is on. Is this an illusion or a feature?

Once again, well done

If his HID fogs are anything like the ones I had, sometimes the ballast didn't fire up on one side so I guess it's a feature, just not one that can be controlled.

OP: Great pics and aggressive looking X! Good choice on the black Brembo calipers. The tendency is to go "big red" but the black looks so much better with your theme and much less "look at me".

Same story here, not sure exactly what the problem is, but sometimes one of the fogs likes to stay dark for a while.

One of my angel eyes goes half dark too. Replacement is in the mail, but needing to rip into the headlight is making me very content with it as is.

Perhaps next summer I'll take the front end off and get the lighting perfect.

Nice photos, I'm an avid photographer myself, you should have removed the front license plate before you started shooting, it's distracting in the frontal shots, overall excellent job.

Camera is a Nikon D700 with a telephoto.

Suspension is very stiff, not family friendly. I really need to find a way to soften the rear as I believe it is way too stiff.

On a smooth road it is amazing, on 90% of roads it is jarring and borderline obnoxious.

Nice shots. If I have the Brembo Calipers, I would show them. They are too blend in with the wheels. i dont mean bright red to scream "LOOK AT ME" but silver with black letter would look great with the theme of the seX5. And you need to have that front plate mouting fixed.
