Default lamborghini murcielago

my first ever attempt at modelling a car,

just a few questions though, how do i get the geo to look the way it did before i subdidvided it,

sorry if i'm not explaining it very well, i'll post some pics for you to look at

here's the car subdivided, however when i convert it back to a polygon the edge flow seems odd, is there a way to make the edge flow look the way it did before, you know nice and neat

to get ur subD to go back to its original polygo form....when you do the convert subd to poly....go into the menu and at the top, make sure verticies is checked...its under adaptive and with that checked, it will bring it back ot its original form.
