hi GA,
infrequently posting on the org now as life is busy! saying that, i now drive a current E63 on a daily basis too so the 6.9 has more time relaxing in the garage!  might be a bit short notice for me but sounds like an excellent idea.  look forward to seeing pics if i can't get free

Nathan! long time indeed!  :) an E63, wow, thinking Jeremy Clarkson all of a sudden, well done, but there is no substitute for a classic especially as well presented as your collection  :-*

the photo shoot went well, the price for the final photos was a bit scary but was told these photos last like masterpieces and not prone to fade and wrinkling so bit the bullet  ::)

the 'white' room was used and they took heaps of photos and the people there were fantastic to talk to. In the review room i went for a single large pic with a collage of three smaller photos done the left side but will probably get in trouble for the layout when i get the pic and post it here  :-\ I went for a full drivers side window shot with my dog standing on the front seat with her head sticking out, ears up and the look of pure enjoyment on her face, could not resist it!  :-* then three photos down the side showing long profiles and it looks good, we tried heaps of designs but kept coming back to the final one chosen  8) Love my dog  ::)

Dramas? of course! they noticed a leak under the car, and it was nothing you could buy on a Sunday, it was the rear self leveling hydraulic fluid as the supply pipe under the reservoir split, cut and fixed it with some fluid left, then spent Monday running around for fluid and new pipe which evolved into new front tires and a wheel alignment but all good now  8)

Hi folks, as below the selected pictures from the Viva Photo shoot at their Balcatta (Western Australia) studio, after a heap of photos we decided to put the dog in the drivers seat for a bit of a laugh and she performed fantastically  :-* so as below, special thanks to Photobucket for their free hosting of photos!

Nice Arse!

But she does come up nice when i get the elbow grease on her  ;)
