Yup. They are copying other luxury makes. Just look at all of the LED strips under/above the headlights nowadays.. Lexus, Saab, Audi, BMW. They're losing their brand identity. You hear me Scott???? Don't abandon your trusted customers, because they'll ditch you for some other brand because of abandonment. Make sure your marketing guys know this because they apparently don't as of now.

Marketing is working to improve on a great brand ... nothing stays the same forever. And as someone in marketing/advertising i cant say i blame them. We constantly look for new and improved changes to our clients identity ... consistently advancing on what we believe to be the future.

Give em some time and i think well like what we see looking back
True, nothing stays the same forever but you cannot abandon your core customers which I believe they are doing now. I really do not like the direction this is headed. Not now or 10 years from now...
