If we go ahead and make the hood and fender louvers body color, I think it's a decent looking car from all angles.

This is a huge improvement. But the most practical answer is to just body color the vents and light trim...

Yes the cruise has a more radical, peaked arc and the camaro's is very gentle. To me these are all the same cue with different applications.

With the C7, they took the drop to a second peak on the top of the fenders and brought that one through the headlights. I don't see why the "inside" line was needed (the one I outlined in red). Just makes it busier. Eye of the beholder I guess if you don't see it.



You could get this across easier if instead of drawing lines you shaded the entire sloped off area your talking about. I'd do it, but I know nothing about photoshop.

It took me a few re-reads and looks at the pics to finally understand what you were talking about.

If you shade the entire downward angle on all the pics it would be very obvious.

Yeah I don't think it's so much the "round" taillight thing as it is the whole bezel vents lights combo that turns me off. I don't mind this photo.

Now this is nice, in fact I think this is the answer for me. I like this a lot, somebody do one with the vents in but painted.

Please!

Still weeping over the Camaro influence. But, this is a better version of it. More tolerable.

Patrick I agree. I still don't understand the rear lights. From the vid/pics I've seen they light up in a U shape. If their goal was to move away from round and into a new era they could have done alot better. I myself would have loved Amber turn signals across the board not just the export models.
