    Re: Mini Micro.

    It's a good idea, but yor perspective/proportions of the back are way off.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    Re: Mini Micro.

    mini rooflines should be more like this:
    ..._____
    _/ I
    ------------------------------------
    that said, the front looks good, you're improving with that part of perspective, but as said above, the roofline goes down too steeply. this could be fixed by making it near-parallel with the beltline. those lines on the side bother me, I'm not sure if they're like the lines on an Elise or the lines on a Hyundai Tuscon. removing them would be wise. if you really want to keep some lines on the side, have the 2 connect and be parallel with the beltline and roofline and sideskirt line like so:
    .....______
    __/______I
    I_0_____0_I
    ----------------------
    that would look more mini imo.

    and i'm not sure how a cheaper, smaller mini would be able to come in 4doors, seeing as the current cooper cant do it.

    (the periods in the diagrams are there because GMI edits the spaces out for some reason.
