guys when you vote please post who you voted for, and the reasons why. post if it was because of the quality of the chop( realism ) or for the idea's used etc. you need to post who you voted for, as this is the only way i can check nobody who shouldnt vote isnt.

Hmm, tough one.

There's things I like and dislike about each one. All the work is very good though, so give yourselves a pat on the back. :)

I think though, I'm going to have to go with D00ner's. Loving the inclusion of the R8 front grills, and slight side skirts. Could've maybe done with some beefing up at the back.

Escort - very good work chap, but for me, the loss of everything Audi on the front for a Dodge Viper front end is a bit too much. Like I say though, just my opinion. Works well as a whole, but I wanted to see the Audi front end beefed up.

MicWilliams - like this one aswell, the spoilers not too bad, suits quite well actually, and the side exhaust is a nice subtle touch, as is the bonnet vent! That looks good! I think it's just the front end that's letting this one down!

I think a combination of all 3 would be ace. The front end of d00ners, with MicWilliams' bonnet vent, the rear spoiler of MicWilliams, with the raised arches of Escorts, and a change of wheels, cant decide which though.

Top job though gentlemen! My hats off to you all! 8-)

Im with dooner on this too I think, I like how the mirrors are the original colour. As well as the other subtle changes, that all work well together.

The dodge viper end was just a bit too much for me as well, even though it does look good.

Micwilliams I would of voted for but I dont really like the different coloured stripe down the middle, otherwise I would of voted that.

I voted Dooner. I like how factory it looks, if i saw that anywhere else i'd probably think it was an actual car.

second goes to Micwilliams, excellent job on the spoiler in terms of realism, but not a fan of the mesh on the front.

And sorry escort, yours looked too much like a viper had just been pasted over the original, your first attempt however was nice.

:)

Hope to see another comp. Don't think i'd participate as all i can use is the clone tool :lol: But i'd always be willing to vote. It's interesting to see how others take on the styling of various cars.

Seriously though, well done to you guys who entered! All the cars look do look great, and it's good for FSi to have something like this, even though it may only be small. :)

Iv got nothing to add to that, other than that all are better tha I could have done, like!!!

D00ner also gets my vote. Mainly on retaining the discrete subtly that makes Audis so great in my eyes 8-)

everyone is voting for Dooner due to the subtle looks, everyone should have told me they liked the subtle look and maybe i would have had a chance :(

you posted what you thought would look good.. your choice, not thiers. if yours was made to look more realistic then you would of had a few more votes, but nonetheless, good efforts all round! and well done... errr.... paul, you done great :| lol

Dude, it's a really good chop, don't get us wrong! I really like what you've done with it, apart from losing the front end, which is the only reason it lost the votes I think.

That's what it'll be like in the world of car designing, some take to it, some don't! Imagine how many versions of each car there have been before they're actually released, or even left the design room. :D

Don't lose faith with it, like I say, it's a really good 'shop, and I honestly look forward to the next one you, and the other guys do! :D

I'd also like to add that I don't think the votes reflect the efforts of everyone who entered, as MicWilliams' 'shop deserved more than no votes, especially after Paul got a vote off some numpty! :lol:
