    Buicks

    Didn't do to much work to them, but I think i matched the colors good (A big plus from me) and anything else I did do didn't come out to bad either IMO...

    Overall they're both decent chops, you missed a couple spots, most noticeably around the headlights. As well, the lower fascia needs to go, the twin scoops just looks ugly, it doesn't suit the round flowing bits that make up the rest of the car.

    Nice chops overall, keep up the good work.

    The headlights make it worse. Maybe try Lincoln LS lights? The lower fascia, though, does look better, but get rid of that ricey intercooler. The coupe conversion doesn't look too bad.
    How about making it into a modern GNX??? The intercooler would be relocated under the hoodscoop (ala Subaru WRX) and maybe you could black-chrome the wheels.
    An idea I had, but don't have Photoshop to develop on, is to give all Buick performance models a RED ring around the triple-shields. Try it, I think it'll work.

    Overall the designs of the first two ones are pretty good, although they are filled with paint blotches and stuff. Try to work on that. Other than that they are pretty good.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    Nearly - the bumper originates from AC Schnitzer's E90 3-series bodykit.

    AC Schnitzer tune BMW/MINI motor vehicles. I think they do bikes aswell, which would be sweeeet......

    Re: Buicks

    I went off in two directions...I wanted more agressive lights then lincoln, so I changed them to something else. I changed the rims to black on one and redid the buick ring the red as suggested...the other I just added the hood scoop...I also changed the rear quarter to end higher...opinions:
