The heavy chrome strips above and below the grill and rear license plate holder and under the headlights are uncalled for. The flare on the under window chrome strip at the upkick behind the C window is too thick, and could this window be reshaped to look like a G50 and not a Teana? The bright stips on top and around the lower valance are overdone or unecessary also.
I think the wheel openings need to be reradiused also as the current radii are set too low relative to the wheel and are too large, resulting in an unattractive flare in the opening fore and aft of the wheels.
Boy, I can almost taste that Porfidio Cactus, AZhitman and Q45blue!

For quadruple or nothing, I bet all the wooden planks from the interior on the console edge, the ends of the dashboard and the door kick panels don't make it either.__________________Brian1995 Q45 & Q45t & 2000 Q45AZhitman wrote:For double or nothing:
I'll bet the rear valance-exit pipes, LED strip turnsignals and reverse lighting in chrome beltline trim don't make it to production.

I guess it's a result of various insurance-agency laws that require certain kinds of "fender bender" accidents to not exceed repair expense caps. A 5mph tap to a normal rear bumper might cost $500 in a new paint job. A 5mph tap to a rear bumper with the exhaust attached would probably be a $500 paint + $2,000 cat-back replacement.

Would require a lot of engineering to design a flexible exhaust which will last 10 years. I can see exhaust crud getting on the paint too. Ever looked inside a tailpipe?
