Thanks for comments guys.
@troyd - Usually I use a grid of meshlights to obtain reflections but this time I used only 2 lights and a hdr for background.
I am attaching a few images with the scene details and the .blend file for who is interested:

thanks for your files tzocrates - very inspiring.

I've rendered your scene a couple of times but I can't seem to get any reflections. Can anyone give me a hint?

I am a complete newb at this.

Thanks

It looks like you don't have the .hdr background enabled. Did you unpack the textures before rendering? Yafaray cannot use packed images.

Try, File -> External Data -> Unpack into files, then render it again.

EDIT - It seems the .hdr is not included, so you will have to download and enable it yourself, or use some other background solution......

thanks stoneage,

i'll try hdr. I'll also try layers - with another example I tried I had to select the correct layer to render with reflections.

cheers

It is missing.

I downloaded the file as I was posting, there are only texture images packed into the file. :)

I have them both:-
Enzo - http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1934813/enzossmat.rar
Bugatti - http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1934813/bugatti.7z

It might take a few minutes for the links to be enabled. The Bugatti is a 2.61 file, but the Enzo, I believe is the original file, and is probably for 2.49.
