the look

What's cool is that,if we do it,we're just nut-cases screwing up perfectly good cars.When someone like Toyota does it,then somehow it becomes validated through some exotic consumer psychological permutation.For the next generation,it is "commonplace" and to be expected,like Bluetooth.

Good analysis, Phil.

Suspension looks lowered too, plus side skirts and a deck lid extension/spoiler.

Too bad about the "air blenders" those tires are mounted on though! (But I've been well trained and will admit I think they look nice!)
