Here's mine... How do you resize the pic smaller when posting btw? Is it just code?

It's kind of what I would envision a 5 series "GT" to look like. Kind of a 4-door coupe, although I hate that term. I found the car too looks smaller in the end than the 5, so I thought I would call it the 4 Series - a swoopier, longer 3 Series based car that's more upscale and looks kinda like a 5.

As for changes...

- I chopped out a sizeable portion of the midsection. Basically lowered the roofline to sit on the shoulderline.
- reshaped the roofline to fit the slimmer body. It's basically a bit less high, and I got rid of the awkward rear-most side window. More of a sedan look now, and a little more trunk surface (but it's still a hatch).
- lowered the taillights so it looks like truckish. Where they were actually reminded me of the Buick Rendezvous.
- slight restyling of the taillights. Extended the chrome band right to the edge and removed the upper portions. Edited the wavy elements so the didn't get cut off by the new top edge. Extended the reverse light area along the entire bottom edge of the tails. Because the taillights were moved down I had to rebuild the upper edge of the trunk, so I made a kinda built in lip spoiler look.
- M3 rims, and I fix it's stance. There looked like there was a lot of front wheel clearance to me.
- made it blue.

Suppose I could post it as it's a useful one to know!

Thats an image as I can't post it without it messing up.

Replace the HERE but keep the punctuation marks. Just place a direct URL to the image in the two spaces.

Thanks... All my html code is slowly learned by posting on forums, so I'm still missing a few useful pieces.

Oh - and the wording of my "ad" is from BMW's banner ad for the GT... Although is seems less meaningful with my chop.

Very nice... I don't think you're allowed to change them once they've been uploaded though. I only say that as I once noticed I had a floating piece of interior trim in one of my windows once, and I couldn't change it. Looks nice as is though.

Im working on an entry for this photoshop comp. Hopefully i get it done soon. I hope the comp doesn't close too soon.

--------------------------

Okay heres my entry:

<a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v132/blink_me192/BMW-5-GT-Final-Revision---S.jpg"<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v132/blink_me192/BMW-5-GT-Final-Revision---S.jpg" width="300"/></a>

My objectives for this chop were to position my version of the 5 GT into the same segment as the Mercedes CLS and VW Passat CC. Essentially i wanted this car to be the flagship model of the 5 series (excluding the M5), as the Passat CC is to the Passat lineup. My aspirations for this car was for it be the luxo cruiser of the 5 series - Low, sleek, sporty and elegant. It does not try to compete with the M5. It has more room than the regular 5 sedan, because of the hatchback shape. The rear opening can function as a regular bootlid, but also because of its hinged rear windscreen, it can also open up completely like the Mazda 6 Hatchback, and the Skoda Superb, offering a large opening and lots of bootspace. It retains the original characteristics of what BMW wanted for the 5 GT - space, functionality and room, but wraps it in a sleek new body.

Very nicely done. I love your shading and airbrush work. So neat and clean! - Those tail lights look fantastic. I noticed you've made the rear windscreen fixed - so that makes it just a sedan so im not sure where that would fit into the BMW line up, as BMW already have the 3, series, 5 series and 7 series. Perhaps it can be the facelifted 5 series sedan? Or maybe slot in between the 5 and 7 as the 6?

SpeedStick - 3
Good job with the chop. It looks quite fast and aggressive. Kinda reminds me of the VL commodore and the colour reminds me of the Lexus IS-F. A good interpretation of the BMW 5 GT.

Porche Power - 2
Very interesting chop. :-) im sure if you had more time, it would've looked even better.

TheophilusChin - 1
Theophilus, I can never fault the quality of your chops. They're always really neat and professional. But i find this one to be a little bit conservative, and not that creative (compared to your other work). But this could be down to the fact that your probably busy with other chops. The rear door windows look good, and the shorter stance suits it well, but the rear end looks a little t0o big - something not quite right with the proportion. But all in all, good job, keep it up. It kinda reminds me of the new Mazda 3 Sedan.

Hey thanks!

By the way, I was just wondering - if the contest ends Saturday, does that mean submissions need to be in by Friday (UK time, presumably)? Also, I tried the html code you posted, and even typing exactly as it was didn't work - is there something I need to do when posting code?
