    As some of you know my C350 V6 Elegance is featured in April's edition of Mercedes Enthusiast Magazine (Out today!). The photographer was Terry Oborne Terry Oborne Photography | who has kindly let me use some of his photos. These aren't exactly the ones that the magazine used. I'm pleased with Kyle Molyneux's review and I hope you enjoy a few of Terry's lovely pics.

    One leg shorter than the other........common with photographers who carry heavy gadget bags around :D



    Its actually called a "dutch tilt" and originated in the film industry......no idea why though, sorry :dk: or I should say no idea why its called that, I know the original reason it was used....but thats too boring, nice pics though and I shall pop in to my local newsagent and see if I can pick up a current copy.

    After reading your thread I went and bought a copy yesterday, only realised when I got home that I had picked up the march edition. Need another trip in to town now.

    Oh no! My car is on the "next month" Page in the March one. Does that make it worse or better!

    Nice pictures overall, but I feel that they just don't do justice to your cars utterly amazing shine.

    Well done Tan! You are the first person to notice that my shine has been digitally removed! Terry showed me how a program removes all "unwanted" reflections! I still liked the article and the photos though. There was one photo they didn't use and the whole bonnet was a reflection of the building behind. It was so cool! You can imagine the state of shine I had achieved for the shoot!

    No, but I thumbed through it today in Tesco. :eek:

    Great photos but I was reminded why I stopped subscribing to the publication many years ago.

    "Reviews" remain as uncritical as ever - to the point of obsequiousness.

    Thanks Greg, do you have any of the professional images that do show the shine, would love to see those.

    Regards
