The ophilius chin: Nice! I had the same idea, so I need to make something else. I don't make a Calibra because there are people that make a Calibra too. But I don't like the high back of the car. That makes the car not really sporty.

I guess I'm stuck on the Italians right now :P After Jaguar stole the spotlight with its rakish new XJ, maybe Alfa should take a similar approach with its 166 replacement.

TheophilusChin|3| Good chop but I expected something more from you.
mario_128|3| Quite good but the rest of the car looks out of place with the Holden bodykit. Maybe if you changed the wheels as well it would look better.
DoMiNo|5| As awesome as it is shiny. My only fault is that the front looks a bit too blunt.
S2|2| Is it just a stretched Insignia? Whatever it is, it looks awkward.
phantomex|5| Excellent replacement for the Avenger, although you could've changed a bit more.
Porsche-Power|3| A taller insignia just doesn't appeal to me.
BryanRC|3| A big improvement from some of your older chops. Still needs a bit of work though.
blackstripe|4| Great at the front but the back-end looks weird.
Baji192|3| The headlights are too big, as is the whole rear-end.
speedfreak_77|5| I can't really fault it.
Iqo'|5| A huge, HUGE improvement over your other recent chops.
accurick|4| The headlights go well but the upper and lower grills look too uncomfortable attached to the front of that car. However, I do like the new windowline.

Not much modifications, and the smaller grille makes the front end look quite empty and underdone.

TheophilusChin - 3
Neat as always, but i was hoping for something a bit more exciting. Maybe you could have changed the foglights or headlights a bit to make it a little more sporting.

Mario_128 - 2
The front end doesn't really work too well, and the side skirts don't line up well.

DoMiNo - 4
Very interesting concept. Although i have to say the windows don't look right for some reason. It might have looked better proportioned if you had lowered the roofline a little bit because atm it looks a bit like a bubble.

S2 - 5
I love your concept S2, although i think you could have executed it a little better.

Phantomex - 3
interesting take. The wheels look a bit small though.

Porsche-Power - 3
The rear end looks a bit odd. Perhaps move the d pillar slightly further back.

BryanRC - 2
A bit odd looking.

Blackstripe - 4
Nice i quite like it. I like what u did with5 the fog lights. But just be careful with the b pillars as they look out of shape.

speedfreak_77 - 4
Neat and top quality as usual. However i think the car has lost a bit of its originality with the conventional bumper treatment you've given it.

Iqo - 5
I love it Iqo. One of the chops that really stood out for me. I love the colour and the concept is quite a good one. However the proportions do look a bit odd. It might have been good if you had looked at the Ford Falcon or Holden Commodore Utes for a guide.

Accurick - 3
Nice chop, but the rear end looks a bit weird. The side looks a bit plain now that you've removed the downward sloping charater line of the front door.

Porsche-Power
07-18-2009, 04:07 PM
A taller insignia just doesn't appeal to me. It's a newer version off the Opel Signum http://www.autowp.ru/pictures/opel/signum/autowp.ru_opel_signum_113.jpg That's also an Opel Vectra Hatchback. And this is a Insignia Hatchback.


ACcartoons-4-Not really much done but its an improvent of your quality so 4 points.
TheophilusChin-5- Nice idea (had the same idea) and it has a great quality, but the butt is a little bit chunky(your donor was a IS right?)
mario_128-2- Not really nice and the idea is not really great and why is the image so low quality
DoMiNo-5-Nice idea! it's a shame of GM that opel doesn't go to fiat :(. Quality is good but you need to change the logo of the wheels (doesn't matter but it's a detail)
S2-3-Not really much done it's a flat insignia. Quality is good but why not more changes of the model?
phantomex-4-Reasonable good idea and the quality is good. and again it's a shame for GM that opel doesn't go to fiat
BryanRC-3-Reasonable much done only the quality is not everywhere good. But its has great wheels and windows.
blackstripe-3-Again a insignia 4-door coupe, or something like that. You have the taillight colored and not really much done.
Baji192-3-I like the model but there's not much done only the grille and the roofline.
speedfreak_77-4-Good quality but i don't like the model because the nose is conventional.
Iqo'-5-Nice idea. Maybe you can make it a Holden Ute model. But the pick-up barge is a little bit flat, but that doesn't care it's a huge improvent for you
accurick-4-Nice idea a Ford 4-door coupe, only there are more 4-door coupe, but you get a point more because you have more done than the roof line, you make it to a Ford. Quality is good

ACcartoons - 3 - I like the simmer lights. I'm not sure about the grill, and the donor wheels seem a little bit low res, but the quality here is much better.

TheophilusChin - 4 - Nice chop, but would have like to have seen other minor changes too. The rear seems very tall.

mario_128 - 2 - The Coupe 60 parts really don't work on this car, and how is the image of such low quality considering the original image?

DoMiNo - 5 - Very interesting look! Roofline needs to be lower though. Together with the low nose, the high roofline makes the proportions look odd.

S2 - 3 - Interesting start to a four door coupe look, but looks a bit awkward.

phantomex - 5 - I like it! The square front works surprisingly well. Though perhaps a few more changes would have been nice. Wheels look a bit small for something American, though haha.

Porsche-Power - 4 - To be honest it just looks like an Insignia Tourer with most of the rear chopped out. I'm liking the black mirror covers, but the red lug nuts don't do anything for me.

BryanRC - 2 - Interesting take. I like the roofline, though perhaps the rear window could be taller. Quality around the VXR grill and wheels not great, and the rear end looks awkwardly long.

Baji192 - 4 - Another very interesting car. The quality is much better this time, but the headlights look too big, and the top of the grill line doesn't really match the shape of the hood.

speedfreak_77 - 4 - Top quality, I like the blacked out roof and the body colored grill. The double projectors look awkward though. Also, the short character line just above the foglight housing doesn't really flow with the car (it was from an Astra VXR?), and it would have worked better without it.

Iqo' - 4 - Looks nice. I was going to do a ute, too, but didn't. The rear quarter window has a slightly awkward shape here, and the black bar needs to be removed as this window won't open. Front door line needs changing, too. I like the "skirts" and love the color. Also the tray needs to be longer, and a production car needs door handles (: Would make a nice baby brother to the Holden Ute.

accurick - 3 - I like the new windows and the front end, but the unchanged left headlight stands out. The new character lines make the car more plain, ad the rear end looks awkwardly long.
