The place that bother me the most is the front of the car where the light reflect the most. Would you like to help me edit it, I would happy to send you the RAW files.

Appears that her skin & the yellow paint is brighter in your edit. They look about as good as each other to me. I don't think the original 'needs' editing unless you were going for a certain mood or something.

Generally speaking I'm not a fan of extreme editing, using generic filter's etc, it's cliché.

Darkening the headlight was a good edit.
Lightening the windows and windshield...not as much...I like the darker windows, I don't need to see inside.
Overall, before and after, the yellow car seems to have a gradient from light yellow to darker yellow (left to right). I like the more intense yellow and would like to see it on the whole car.

Just a couple thoughts.

Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!

Although I can tell what vehicle this is, I would have liked to see at least to the middle of the grill. Also, in general I think shooting from either above or below the height of the side-view mirrors makes for more interesting car shots.

But composition aside, I think your edit is could have warmer colors and possibly try to recover the blown out portions of the model's shirt.
