    I used to think pinhead was kinda creepy. Now he looks like your average barista at Starbucks.

    Don’t talk shit about baristas. I have a lot of rich friends that go to Starbucks. They don’t count angels on the head of a pin. My point? Yes.

    I can afford one. It's a ugly sick joke. The designers who came up with that, and the execs who approved it, should be put up against a wall.

    Wow this looks hideous. I think if car manufacturers wanted to save costs, stop designing new cars every year. Same molds and parts. Maybe every other or 3 years. Then people will be so sick of that model, they’ll consider buying this ugly pos on release lol

    Mostly dust and dirt.
    Seems Japanese car designers are stuck in an ugly loop.

    This is an interior shot of that Lexus, either some horrible photo editing or that thing has massively oversized seats!

    The seats and the grille make sense now. caterpillar-757f.jpg
    This is how big the LX600 is in comparison to the GMC S10 Jimmy.

    Eff it—someone buy one of those plastic grilles for me and I’ll ziptie it on my truck to justify this thread’s existence. It’ll look sweet. @hiPSI — We may need one of your Gatsby bros to foot the bill.

    Here I am wondering why I can't find the posts by the clown who said we can't afford them, and therefore can't have an opinion, so I can quote him...and low and behold, it's the stooge hanging out by himself on my ignore list.

    Can't imagine why I blocked him. :rofl:


    He's still creepy asf, you've just been desensitized.

    Not just the japanese. BMW absolutely shit the bed with the new M3 and their hideous grill. Ruins the heritage of the kidney grill

    And someone is already making an aftermarket bumper to hide the monstrosity:

    Here's where BMW designers seem to be going:
