Default Fiat 500

This is my first car. I picked a Fiat because it virtually had no curves and looked simple. I'm having trouble with it though. I'm getting unwanted bumps in it and I don't know why. I posted some pics so any help would be great. I didn't do any details yet.

V

um... its not doing anything...

the mesh has bulges too, but its your normals:
(edit polygons>normals>harden/soften)
and set it too 180.

also, when you smooth your mesh, make sure the "keep border edge" option is NOT ticked
