Third Stage was pretty dark in terms of color palette, so having the BD version notably update the lighting is interesting.

Agreed, not to mention it's 16:9 for the first time ever. I wonder if they actually had a film master to work with. Very interesting.

Too bad OP has no bluray drive on his PC.

I thought this was already known. Third Stage was the one true HD remaster among Avex's Initial D BDs. There are even clips floating around of the Battle Stage rerelease that show the remastered Third Stage footage in all their glory.

As for the perceived color-grading differences between the BD and the DVD, I'd just chalk that up to taking a camera pic of a TV screen in a dark room and not adjusting the exposure.

Extra Stage had been improved
But 4th stage was just upscaled...

You'll have to wait for screenshots, after I've done dozens of photos, my card got corrupted...

Can you confirm that Third Stage has color correction/brightness differences over the DVD, or was it just your camera and/or TV settings?
