You need the bumper all the way across...not just grill...there's a wide hunk of aluminum back there...lose the outward flairs, standard kidney grills, no squiggley leds in lights for me please (though that could be cool...but it's too audi for me...did you know bmw has laser headlights in the works?).
All that said, I think if this was a LeMans racer, I could see it better. I think you have talent...don't let the crew of the Starship Enterprise dissuade you!
Could you draw me Marisa Tomei on a green e46 bumper...just kind of laying back...taking me in? That sort of thing? Fern green metallic if you can manage.
Also I'd like her in the lycra body suit from My Cousin Vinny.
