    Cool 2012 Buick Enclave MCE Updated, Update!


    Hey guys once again I've decided to lend my artistic talents to making another car modification this time the victim is the 2012 Buick Enclave. I tried to remedy some of the complaints some of us had with the current styling but it was challenging because this is one of the most stunning looking cars in GM's current stable. Note I added an extra porthole to denote a V8 upgrade. I may add new wheels later too. So here it is let me know your thoughts...

    Those are the Enclave's sexy bedroom eyes that I added inviting you to come on in for a spin.

    Re: 2012 Buick Enclave MCE Update

    So I'm just glancing at the Enclave versus the LaCrosse. Maybe you can remove the chrome from the front as done but drop it onto the side like the LaCrosse. Maybe some LaCrosse 19" wheels from CXS trims with the Touring Package. Lastly, a larger chrome piece on top of the tails like the LaCrosse instead of a smaller ring around the tails like the existing Enclave.

    Just thoughts!

    Interesting ideas but I am still bothered by the grill. I just think it sits to high up or the bottom isn't low enough for where the top edge is. My other pet grievance is the body color C pillar. It is completely contained by the chrome strip surrounding the side glass area so it just sorta floats there. I would make it black like the B pillar. But what do I know? I am just an artist.

    I think it really needs to keep the chrome.

    Aside from the added porthole on the engine hood, the rest of your changes make the Enclave look lame/cheap/dull.

    looks like a step backwards in design. maybe try using the Centieme for inspiration?

    I was looking at more the shape, not so much the details within the headlight. It's more lacrosse/regal like compared to the bubble like shape of the Enclave

    Your revised headlight shape reminds me of the Camrys'.

    Re: 2012 Buick Enclave MCE Update

    The changes are pretty good. I especially like the tail lights and new exhaust tips. The Headlights are a little too Camry as mentioned and I really think it needs that chrome strip in the front, if it's two tone. Maybe if it's monochrome, it can do without, but not two tone. I think the grille should be bigger as well.

    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire Uzzy.
