Look's cool, and great choice of wheels too! Now you need to find a 1/24 scale driver for it! Fujimi made several driver figures, might want to have a look at that.
For your VW emblem, I suggest using Bare Metal Foil. Stuff works great and gives you realistic chrome as it's really true, ultra thin sheet of metal with sticky backing. Great stuff to work with. Comes in all kinds of finishes.
