I need to ride in a car that is bagged like this one day. I just realized that I never have. Just to experience the ride itself. I heard they bounce like hell, others say the latest and greatest bagged suspension(s) works great. The only people I know of that have had air ride (on cars and trucks) have had nothing but leaky shocks, bottoming out, and nothing but problems. Even the supposedly top end stuff. I won't be doing that to my E3, don't worry, but as far as "looks" go, I don't mind it. Definitely not everyone's POV.

Stanceworks photography continues to drive me nuts. Extra dark images with added vignette effect.

Exactly. Do you do photography, as well? It's annoying seeing poor choices in lighting/composition/editing in soooo many pictures... The tech is so easy to use that everyone fancies themselves an expert these days.. LOL. My wife and her instagram photos.."what filter do you think I should use?" Me...grrrr..

As a guy who is more interested in the "how it works" rather than the "how it looks" I find these articles to be very uninteresting. Three pictures of an insulated turbo and some ignition coils doesn't say a lot about the engine. No undercarriage pics, brake pics, etc...

I’m the only one in my family who is not a photographer, but I agree with your thoughts. I wouldn’t mind the look if they actually mixed things up once and a while. They completely distort paint colors, which is my biggest gripe.

Ditto. I don’t know anything about M50’s and was hoping to learn a few things...
