Thanks guys! Moving along to the next car, classic first generation Subaru Legacy/Liberty Wagon. Farily simple model, the car is pretty boxy, but I think it will be a nice addition to MM2, odd car to race but it's fairly fast. Here you can also see how it barely looks like a Legacy, once it's textured it becomes unmistakeable.

Thanks guys. I have a question for all of you veteran modders, would it be possible to do pop up headlights for the Honda NSX and how would I do that?

Here we go, some pics.

Nice flawless textures. :o
Yes, you can make headlights pop using transparent textures. For that, first make 3D headlights on the hood, next, make a separate texture file and use this file to texture them and at the end of the file name, add "_ni" (without quotes; eg: car_headlight_ni.tga).
Any texture with _ni suffix is displayed only in the night.
For the day, make another texture which should be fully transparent with the same name, but without the _ni suffix so that the headlights are invisible during day.
Making headlights like this has a flaw: They won't be visible during the evening, rather you'll see a glow at the position of headlights because _ni textures show only during night.

Im not really interested in low poly cars, but damn you're doing a great job with making and even texturing these car models! Keep it up bro. ;)

Adding on to e-cobra's post, remove the reflections of the textures used on the popup headlights by using the MM2 City Toolkit. This is so the reflections don't show up on the transparent texture applied during the day, this will also affect the _ni version of the same texture.

Thanks guys, thanks for the tips too, I was thinking in that direction of transparent textures. Here is the next awesome car, I am sure it is pretty self-explanatory. I chose this one because it is my number one all-time favourite car and because it is time we also complete the SF crash course with the antagonist vehicle from Bullit. Those bumpers were crazy hard to get right in lowpoly style.
