yer, I see some simple mods that look very effective. well done it looks good. I think that the rear lights need some shading and some light colours, other that that its good.

If you do silver taillights, it is not enough to set saturation to 0. They take more time if you want them look realistic.

I set saturation to 0 and I increased the lightness just a bit as to not make them look like they are smoked. They were supposed to be clear tail lights not altezzas. Thanks for your comments guys <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/banana.gif" BORDER="0">

If you want them to be smoked, you should have messed more with Brightness/Contrast. If you wanted themto be clear, then Colour balance would have helped you... That part on the "D" pillar should be coloured on a new layer, because it looks white, and it should look a lighter green... I hope I have helped you...

Im sorry again, I am asking all for any feedback regardless of anything. Thanks for the tip on the taillights, here I tried it for myself...<p><IMG SRC="http://img64.exs.cx/img64/9885/xc902slightlysmallercopy5qj.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>The thing that I was not getting is that I have to make the colored bulbs see through. I understand now.
