Poly count wise this looks like you have been ultra efficient, the normals look a little bit dodgy though can you post the wires?
It looks as if a couple of edge loops around where the surface changes direction might help the shadowing.

good effort

the mesh seems to be quite bumpy i would suggest checking out some car modelling tutorials from gnomon workshop and try getting a smooth and evened out model then use the normal maps to display the details that would require high polygon count hope i have explained myself well

The back rear areas make me wince, they need some smoothing out, give it an overpaint to define the topology a bit more.

hmm i get the feeling that the car was organically modelled check out some tutorials on hard surface modelling then you will see how better to approach this model and what you need to do to improve it
