    Looks better with your photochopping. Plus having a clean hood line would make clear bra application stick that much better.

    So, just to be clear, the i3 doesn't use the airflow at all for any sort of cooling? Surprising. If so, then scrap the whole fake thing - I thought that was the whole point of re-thinking the vehicle with all of the unique materials and such if you have a fake grill. Just close it and make it cleaner.

    If we're playing car designer, the first thing that I may do is start with a clean slate...

    The whole car is a disaster (cosmeticly). Just scrap the thing and start from scratch.

    It does need some airflow for cooling and for the air conditioning heat exchanger. The lower grill under the license plate is probably where that air comes from.

    That front license plate and carpool sticker ruin the important, clean look of your car.

    I like the different colors, and I'm sure that soon enough cheesy sticker kits will be available to make that a possibility. I don't like the shaved grill. It makes the bulbous front bumper too prominent. The top of the "grilles" provides some visual weight to balance it out.
