Yes...

In all seriousness, I think it still looks good, I am just not sure it looks better than the previous gen. I do like the new wheels though.

No there are a few. We will form a support group for you.


Or





Like I have said many times I could learn to live with most of it but that damned front bumper is a thing of nightmares (for me).

I think the TRD version that was posted in the other thread made the bumper look worse than it actually is, but i guess not thats not saying much.

I think Toyota is trying to do to the FR-S what Datsun did to the 240Z. And it ain't good.

I see it's sprouting a moustache. So, I guess it took 4 years for the car to hit adolescence.

The annoying thing about the facelift is that the car is inherently well-proportioned from being a FR sports car with a low hood line. There's an opportunity to make a design classic, not just fresh. It's like a suit told an underling to just "add more Toyota cues from some other cars," then went to play golf.

But see although that is similar it doesn't have that damned bulbous nose and dip in the front like the new one does. It is that blob that bugs me.

That is the weird part since they used curves in some spots and sharp edges on others. The edges of the back bumper are very abrupt. They just don't follow the rest of the car's lines.

Which goes hand in hand with the fact that as the car matures it moves out of the engineers hands and into the marketing realm. This has killed many a car in the past I am afraid.
