The vehicle looks sweet in the first pic but the second one i did not like the way the wheel arches look. Makes your tyres look undersized.

To be honest its different but the V in the front makes it look like a battering ram.

Side profile looks good. front bumper is too boxy, please change it if you can.

get some wider wheels and tires or spacers.

looks decent but you really need spacers to make it look good.

Now that the widebody look has been acheived, the car looks odd since the wheels look undersized. You need spacers to reduce that effect. Also, the design is rather boxy which doesnt suit the flowing lines of the new Optra.

Eehh?! Does it move?

Sorry boss! Didn't like it.
IMO the kit design is a mismatch for the car..
Where did u get the kit from?

the tyres are crying for spacers or have bigger tyres , all this without matching tyres is a real let down ...

IMHO - the stock chevy magnum looks much more dignified.

@jkdas all Magnums are TDCi

Here, this is what im talking about. Try to make the front bumper more curvy, remove the clear cut edges, add mesh grills and wheel spacers. your car will look complete.

looks huge and boxy. Color is out of place and ordinary for such a modded car
As kpzen asked: does it run? All aerodynamics would have gone for toss.
