Yes, this is about the '06 LS 460. When the BMW 7-Series was introduced, many hated the design cues and futuristic styling. A petition to "fire Chris Bangle" was made. It's 2006. Japanese copy-cat Toyota decided to copy some of the design cues...and incorporate them in their new flagship model. I checked CNN.com today and even they admit "The design seems a bit derivative of BMW..." Not to mention the current LS looks just like the old Mercedes-Benz S-Class. I understand that there are leaders and followers in every industry... but those who copy give me a grand pain in the ass.
