Can we see some close ups and wires Plz ?

Three things about the model (see image/corresponding numbers);
1. The bars of the grill aren't quite parallel or spaced evenly.
2. In my opinion the edges of the door should be sharper.
3. It appears that the gap between the hood and the lower front part of the car tapers near the end.
The renders and the rest of the model look pretty good.

Maybe you should post a clay render because we can't see the lumps & bumps in the mesh when its all shiny and delicious :P

is this one of your first cars? cause it looks like it. My suggestion to you is this start a new project, a new car or maybe even this same one. I am telling you this cause you got lots of things to work on this car and if you try to fix it all you will spend lots of time and get so frustruated just like I did on my first car. This looks good but it can be much better as you prolly know also. I am not saying that you are bad modeler or anything I am just telling you what might be good for you so you learn much better. This is from my own experience. I made civic as my first car and I had the small errors like you on bunch of spots that weren't that big but the car wasn't perfect. So I just started the same car all over again and second time was almost perfect if not perfect. Keep up your work...

Skavke - your quite right, most of this model is from about 12 months ago. I've been tweeking it over the last 2 months to where i feel i am now.
I will think hard about going back and starting from scratch, with all that i have learn (since last year), your right i will probably get a better results.
Though will more tweeking of key parts, i think i can save myself the hours of a total rebuild, we see how it goes.

I don't know if you are going to follow with the work or not, but perhaps you could try to add some details to clear importance to the small mentioned errors.
And another thing, can you post a close-up (wire) of the front lights? It looks simple but perfect...

What lighting are you using for your clay renders I recommend simply the standard grey max material for EVERYTHING and JUST the Brazil skylight. I think your render doesn't pick up shadows very well, so we still can't see the problems in the mesh.

just playing with the lighting, fixed up the front grill while i was at it. Im working a new wire for this car .. cleaning it up and adding stuff to make it more current (closer to real)..
This image is a little dark (was the point) .. so some people might have to turn up your monitors brightness to see.
