    Looks good enough to be in a FIAT brochure. j/k
    Is that a Fiat?

    Nice shot - did you mount the cam, or get someone very brave to hold it? Only problem I can see is that dodgy line on the paintwork (be it reflection or what), just above the black trim. :)

    What tyres have you got on there? They look a bit like Mich Pilot's.

    I had the cam attached to a tripod extended out the passenger window, composed the shot and got back in the car, start to pull away whilst holding the tripod steady with my left hand and pressing the shutter button on the remote switch at the same time :D

    It's Dunlop SP Sport01's on the front atm, pretty decent in the wet.

    I should have polished the car first :)

    Nice thinking - must've been a carefully planned thing then. :p

    The Sport01's look pretty good tbh, not as nice as Toyo Proxie's or GDS3's, but there we are. :)

    Good job, the composition in this are lovely.

    And purely out of curiosity, what are those window mount tripods like. Are they actually any good?

    I have no idea, I just used a regular tripod.

    Toyo proxies are good on the MR2's, lots of grip from the rears which is important.

    Continueing on this off-topic route. Goodyear Eagle F1's are supposed to be considerably better than Toyo Proxies in the wet.

    Looks swish just a lil confused, what is that in the top left in black, looks like sky but it surely can't be night...

    None the less, a great shot :thumb:

    Great colors! Just as Nath I was intrigued by the dark areas. They really make the rest stand out almost like neon. Plus you've got motion blur in the tire as well as radial blur... Brilliant. (Don't tell Nath, but I think this one is better :p )
