    The roof line at the back looks really weird. Did you model it against a blueprint of a 3 series sedan? If yes it's probably just the camera angle. If not, you might want to do that to make it look a bit better.

    Are you referring to the pic uploaded by D-Troxx? It's just the doors' textures that look a little wired I guess. It's partly modeled by 3-series pics, partly just how I thought it looks good.

    Great job !
    As Neidgel said, the roof line seems to me to be a bit low at the rear.
    I can't see very clear side pictures in the topic but i'm wondering if adult people can seat on the rear bench without having their head touching the roof, or even bending their heads. If they can't, then the roof is designed too low. For the little i can see of it, i think the space left for the head is very thin. And those cars are designed to be safe.

    I own a Bmw E36 touring and i don't have a lot of room for head sitting on the front seats either. But what i mean is, by trying to imagine people sitting on the bench, are they able to keep the head straight, or they need to bend their neck. Because the design seems to me very low. But i can be wrong, it's just a question.

    It curves in a little, thought that looks more interesting:)

    Sunburst in contrast, it curves out.

    Indeed, a car with a too little roof and no legs is a little bit too much for just one guy.

    This guy is gonna be our favorite rear bench height tester hé hé.

    A panorama sunroof for the high-end models would be nice. And it'd probably look better if the back window would line up with the trunk.

    I think that on the last picture, the two black glass lines should be straight lines and not curves, that's why it's weird from back view and looking good from 3/4 rear view or side.

    That's true, getting the lines straight from back view while keeping it in a good shape is the problem mostly...but I'll keep looking into that.
    First I'll fix the core jbeam problems though, bc it's time to get a beta online then:).

    I'll look into that, too.:)
