    I think it would look better without that odd curved line at the bottom of the doors. Otherwise, I like the design and love this type of car. It may be RWD, but I can see it squaring off directly with the Volvo C30.

    On second look those headlights don't look all that good... kind of dated already. Very low-tech looking with those huge glass covers. Great roofline though.

    This may be way off, but the first thing I thought was a Bangle-ized Ford Focus ZX2.

    That's a bad Photoshop of a 3 series.

    The wheels look photochop'd in. The brake rotors and the wheels don't look right to me. Angle maybe?
