Looks good. Red accents and Black side skirts have to go!

Red and Yellow = Ronald McDonald.

Wrap the side skirts as well. I don't like the contrast. Also get rid of all the red on the car, it does not look good with yellow. Looks kinda like a taxi cab lol. I think it will look great once you do all those things.

sideskirts are wrapped. There was not enough time to finish them before the photoshoot.

Red accents are from when my car was black. I can peel them off anytime, which I will when i so choose.

I think the color title of sunflower yellow is very descriptive. It is very eye grabbing, for certain

it is nicely done if the skirts were wrapped, but he would need a more aggressive set of wheels

I am not a professional photographer so I'm sure the green lines across the photos have a visual purpose, but to me they're distracting and look like some odor or gas is creeping through the air a la Scooby Doo.

Also are those Maybach-esque curtains hanging from the B-pillar?

I like the color though. I think some of the BMW yellows are flat and lacking richness but this is definitely bold. Is the 3M "glossy" closer to matte or closer to clearcoat glossiness?

Agree the rockers need to be taken care of. At first glance it looked like it was completely missing. Get rid of the rims as well.

I never understood that silly Junction Produce stuff..waste or money IMO.

I am personally not a fan of yellow cars. However if the skirts are done as you said and you lose the yellow/white hood roundel (mismatch? trunk still blue?) and did black/white roundels all around instead and added aggressive wheels it will help it out tremendously. Oh and lose the red accents as well. Red and yellow just aren't complementing colors.
