I can help you out if you want help from a real car designer. haha Robo! LOL If your end dream is to work for BMW your best chances for that are to go to Art Center in Cali. Its stupid expensive but its the only school here in the US that BMW visits and they always give internships to people from that school. I would stay away from the school you mentioned, not because its a bad school, its just when you graduate most of the companies usually go to Art Center or CCS in Detroit. Unless you are Chrysler and you want designs like the sebring you look for designers in Cleveland.

this one came out interesting. not how i orginally intended for it to look, but i like your twist on it. this looks more mid-engined. you also ditched the flared intakes on the side (they were intended to look somewhat similar to the oens featured on the M1 Hommage). very nice man.

believe it or not, i did a variation of my s2000 that basically featured the exact same front end . i took inspiration from that honda CR-Z concept that debuted a while back. again, noice overlay dude.
