    Solstice Z4 *UPDATE/FINAL*

    Unfortunately GM tanked. Looking to expand it's North American market, BMW (dont think they're owned by anyone) buys Pontiac. Here's two versions I've been working on today.

    This was the first one i started. there are a few flaws and a few things I have in mind that i haven't done yet but i wanted to post it before i did anything else incase somebody has a better idea.




    This one i havent changed as much..it started as an accident actually but I thought I'd try it anyway.



    any comments and suggestions would be appreciated and if you like one better then the other let me know and ill spend the next 3 days on which ever one generates the most interest.
    Thanx!

    ************I changed my mind and decided to enter both just for the heck of it. Both of the ones below are final Rex.********

    Why does he need to change more? Is your comment supposed to be criticism of some kind?

    That second one is bad to the bone, much better then the current production car IMO, just change the other headlight and ya got yourself a winner.

    I'm gunna have to stay go with the first, only one thing, change the handle, looks bizarre. Just my preferences tho, Seems like you have a winner with the second one, seeing as other people say.

    Re: Solstice Z4

    I don't like the 3rd pic as much as the 2nd. It seems to me like all that you did was use the smudge or another one to move the headlight around, it doesn't look too real. If that was cleared up they would look pretty good. Thx for trying that out, I didn't really have any time to make even a quick chop.
    :EDIT: On further examination, I realized why you made the headlight look droopy. My advice- take the bottom of the headlight more in towards teh grille, instead of straight down as it looks in the 3rd photo.

    Re: Solstice Z4 *UPDATE/FINAL*

    only thing is you have to fix the grill on the second one,
    you'll notice if you follow the lines coming off the hood that one side is too wide

    nice chops but I never did like the Z4 and I think it is hard to improve on the Solstice...so nice work but not crazy about either look.

    There is a hair sticking out of the headlight on your second final chop lol. Not too bad overall but I never liked the Z4 or the Sostice. Just beating a dead horse for me.
