The silver car also has the lack of shadow detail too, and this should be a pretty simple fix in post processing. As for the softness in the last photo, it looks like you had your focus point set to your front wheels, so everything around it is soft. What lens did you use for this shot? From the EXIF info, I'm assuming you're using the kit 18-200mm? It's quite possible that this lens has a particular softness problem at f/4 at that range as well, so it might compound itself with where your focus point is located. Nevertheless, the photos (and your car) are looking good...keep at it!
thanks armin i appreciate that. yea it is tuff but my car is black and i really wanna get better at shooting black cars for that reason lol. yea thats wat i was going for, a ominous/dark kinda scary theme or watever ahha.

so should i just bring lighten up the shadows more so there not so dark?
actually i was using a 35-70mm f4 lens, and i think the softness of the silver car is because of the merging of the photos maybe? cuz my whole car seems more focused than the silver one..
