Hey guys. I'm still working on the interior shot and some animations but I thought I'd share the first image for now.Modeled in Maya and Lightwave and rendered in Lightwave.

actually, the wheels DO look perfect, it's just that we're expecting to see some dirt on em my only other crit is that the logos on the hubcaps are all perfectly upright...and that'd never happen. But that's just a nitpick that only I would notice

absolutely awesome job!

nice...i agree with simon, the wheels dont come up to the standard of the rest of the car and theres something not right about the top one...apart from that its very photographic...is there some retouching on the speculars?

My god I'm not a car fan but this is just perfect (with the tiny exception of the wheels being a little bright). How do you accomplish the flares? Are they just in the relection image? Also can we get a wire please?

I think I put my finger on it. the lights in the reflection don't look like they're the lights casting the shadows. if the car is at a 45 degree angle to the camera, and the sun is at say 13 degrees, which is about what it looks like judging from the shadow (maybe a little less than 135), then the light won't reflect back into the lens. that sound right ro everyone?

Thanks for all your comments guys!

Valkyrien: Im using the same light for the RT shadow and all the specular so I'm not sure what would cause the angles to be off but I will check to see if theres and funkiness going on.

Here are some maya wires (LW wires on the way) and an untextured version of the interior.
