I like them but i'd wish you'd have moved the bits of pipe on the ground in number 1 that are sticking out of the bonnet.

I like the rolling shot much more then the shots against the brick wall which after the flash becomes very prominent and kinda wavy distracting.

These are on the edge of being unsharp, but otherwise look OK.
Silver cars are easy. Be aware that parking next to a wall like that won't look good with a black car.

You used ISO Speed Ratings = 250
...which I've read is actually noisier than the next whole number ISO 200 or 400.

wavy? like the reflections in the car wavy or the lighting itself is wavy?

im always deathly afraid of over sharping LOL they could be sharper but i cant stand the over sharping to the point where it looks really fake.

yah silver cars are cake to shoot! of course a black car in spot would be horrible, i was shooting a black car it would go against a very light colored backdrop. i try to avoid black cars though LOLOL

interesting stuff on ISO 250, ill have to look into that

shooting a black car it would go against a very light colored backdrop.

No, not for that reason. The bright reflections in the roof & hood of a black car will be killed by the wall, something you won't notice as much in a silver car.
And as to a white background, keep in mind that our eyes are drawn to the brighter parts of the shot. And those bright areas tend to make the dark car look even darker. Take a look at POST #30 near the bottom: The gray bar at the center is the same density all the way across.
