I think these are going to be some good (and needed) changes. I would also paint the front lip, rear spoiler, and the eyelids. but I actually liked the wheels

If you painted it the gray color from the last picture and calmed things down, it'd be a lot better (in my opinion, at least).
I'm going to agree with this... I wouldn't have phrased it quite so negatively (as I think the car is pretty eye catching as is). Painting some/all of the hood and a few other tweaks would just "calm down" the car. as it sits, it's pretty in your face and in a rather kid-style way. Just too flashy looking.
