Not much info to go on to be honest. what did you do between the two renders? cant you just use the settings on the good one?

the only difference between the renders is the material. On the puke render, i have a glossy arch and design mat, and the good render is just a standard mat. - in the puke render, im using a bitmap with the green color pluged into a color correction map before going in the diffuse.

i just rendered it out with a mitchell filter, very high quality everything (shadow precisiion, gloss etc) and got the same puke look....

*fixed it with a work-around, just switched the material to arch, not arch and design. Unfortunetley i couldnt fix that problem while using an arch and design mat.. if anyone has any ideas on what was happening it would always be good to hear

does the arch and design have different reflection settings than arch?

the upper one is reflecting everything it has to reflect
black wheels, black tank tracks and no background (white is not counted as reflection i think).

add some objects close to your reflective obj and see if it changes anything
also, try setting some smoothing groups on your object so the relfections get distorted a bit to see the effect
