This is really nice! You got the headlights nicely, but the roof could be a bit lower :classic:

Oh yes, but then the springs for the trunk door wouldn't have fit in.
Sometimes my model reminds me of the Daihatsu Materia which imo is the worst looking car ever.

This Lego Technic car model is the first representation I've seen of the Toyota IQ electric microcar (pictured below), which was the Japanese Car of the Year for 2008.  There's a lot of Lego pieces crammed into a small space!  Kudos to you, grindinggears!   :thumbup:

I counted the pieces for you when disassembling

The result is 1139 pieces in total
containing 7 PF elements,
8 gears (none is used for the drivetrain)
and lots of those little connectors
