The rear end of the current 3-series coupe is a rip-off of the '96-'00 civic coupe. I personally think the new civic's back end looks just like the mitsubishi mirage.Originally posted by ckolsen:
Someone needs to get a life. Anyone notice how much the new Civic looks like the 3 series? What goes around comes around. Notice no one copies the VW Golf though, wonder why?

Oddly enough one of your IS300.net counterparts has taken the time to point out how much the Ford Focus actually resembles the VW GTI. Also you should note that cool whip antennea on your IS is pretty much robbed from veedub's. As well as Mercury's Cougar...and the Focus.. hmmm.
You took the words right out of my mouth!!!!Originally posted by ckolsen:
Hah! One of the ugliest cars on the road (Focus) has stolen from the VW. I stand corrected!
As for the whip antenna, I have no idea what you mean, but please don't explain, I'm really not interested.

It's too bad the ugly Focus copied VW.....otherwise it would be a nicer looking car......
The Focus is a nice car, however, I wouldn't call it "one of the hottest selling compacts this nation has seen". Ford has sold 220,000 Focuses thru Sept of this year. Ford used to sell 300,000 Escorts annually and so it looks like the Escort was actually more popular.Originally posted by QuikVR6:
Funny so ugly ..yet is one of the hottest selling compacts this nation has seen.
And since I know you are interested, the whip antennea on the IS300 roof is a rip off of years of just one of the many design characteristics VW has.

While I enjoy bashing VR6, jokes aside I think the new and previous Golf look nice, especially the new interior. The Passat is at least better than Accord/Camry/Maxima, and while the Jetta is not great, it looks better than most compact sedans. VWs have character, as do BMWs, even Saabs & Volvos. I love Hondas, but they aren't much to look at (except NSX - Integra is ok, i bought one). Toyotas all suck except the IS300. Nissan hasn't made a nice looking car since the 300ZX, same for Mazda (since who knows what?). The Americans are hopeless.
Gee, my brother's M Coupe has a little whip antenna just like mine. So BMW's ripping off too, huh?Originally posted by QuikVR6:
