    Washed my Saturn Aura.....

    I washed my Aura( by hand of course!) and decided to try to get a bit creative with my new Nikon D60.

    Nice.

    Is it just me, or does it look like there's a distinct lack of tread on the center of the tires? :P

    Could just be me though.

    It's not you. It's the design of the tire. A much better tire then the POS Goodyear Eagle LS2's........

    You may have to return the camera - seems you can't fit the full side/quarter profile of the Aura in a shot.

    Looks great.

    The sun didn't permit to get a better angle of the car without causing too much glare.

    It looks like you took those pictures in the same place Motorweek films...



    ...Obscure reference, I know, but if you watch the show (which is produced in Maryland) and pay attention to the scenery in the road driving shots, it looks just like where ChevyRules took the photos. Barns, wooden fences, lots of trees...

    Which the background is just part of my backyard.

    And those pics really do make the one lasting remanent of the accident stand out. Damn DSLR photo quality.

    The black matte plastic trim on the bottom of the bumper? Those could be scrapes...or polish or wax.

    Nope, the gap between the left headlamp and bumper. They could never get it perfect.

    Wow. That really is a handsome looking vehicle. Better than the 3 series IMO. Sure, point and laugh, but the Aura has a wry confidence about it, where as the 3er looks a bit indecisive. Yes, I know it would blow the doors off the Aura but that isn't the point.

    Nice. I don't bother washing mine anymore due to weekly trips to Cedar Point. The front end just gets trashed with bugs.
