Just like they did before bangle.

I've said it before and I'm going to say again. I feel like they are apologizing for the bangle era with these cars (7,5,3) and I feel slightly betrayed by them because it seems like they are now going in the opposite direction.

For years they told us "You've got to trust us. These cars are the future. Soon everyone will be copying this flame surfacing stuff." and by the time the entire line had been bangled they all made sense and looked like nothing else on the road (in a good way IMO).

Now it's like they are saying "Oh, yeah... we just said what we had to to sell cars while that lunatic was running things. Thanks for keeping us in business. We're going back to making the same car just in different sizes and now... Here is the 5GT! You need one of these. It's the future...blah...blah. We're not just saying that, we mean it this time."
