I was crossing my fingers, hoping it wasn't going to be with those headlights.

Good:

- love the roofline, much more interesting than before. I'm suprised because I thought they couldnt improve the perfect roofline they already have!

- Headlights look sleeker, without the kink it would be perfect. The kink isnt as bad as I thought it would be but I still dont like it.

- Front bumper is chunkier.

- Wheel arches are very wide!

but:

- sideskirts should be more interesting.

- not feeling the wheels.

- 350Z proportions were perfect, not sure if I like it 4 inches shorter. However, I wont complain just yet because we dont know the performance gains. I'm not going to say more till I see official pics or better pics.

The C&D shot was a rendering, this is the first actual picture.


Until this new pic I was also dredding the headlight kink. Now that we see it, I have to say it doesn't look quite as bad as I expected. Not to say it looks good - but maybe it will grow on people? Those fender flares are huge!

lmao it's only you that cant see the pics though. Everyone else can see them. Besides, it takes more time to save all the pics and attach them again, I just embed the pics in the post like most people. For you, I'll post links to the pics too lol

overbite

fangs are bad bad bad and wouldn't even be acceptable on a tuner car though now you'll see it everyewhere, headlight notch is unsophisticated, overtly decorative and unintegrated with anything else, sidewindow looks good but H kink doesn't resolve well with roofline as the swoopy rear fender becomes horizontal. most people won't be able to distinguish this from the current body.

always like the clean slablike fender area ahead of the front wheels, looks like it's getting some concave shaping now, could look okay or become another unresolved flourish.

I dont like the lights but the updated pic do them more justice. It appears there is a crease going along the top of each fender that the lights highlight. Much better than just a V shaped light for no reason....
