Yes, that's the problem - The manufacturers make all their range look recognisably the same because they think it strengthens the brand and also because accountants run the companies and think 'economies of scale'. The result is very boring and certainly not what an enthusiast seeks.

:nerd:'s!!

^Its also because cars are styled by committee not styling houses anymore and it does not help they have to conform to so many stupid EU and goverment rules that sort of dictate the shape.

Yes, I was forgetting all the EU legislation - Apparently also why so many factory production cars are so raised off the deck in case of pedestrian attack!

No wonder people like to modify their cars.

The Mk6, more like Mk5.5. It IS a facelift, I don't care about the extra engineering changes etc. From the outside it is a Mk5 with a new front and tail. That's what most people see, that's the 'face' of the car.

As for the corporate 'look', this has happened for years, just look at Merc, BMW and VW, they have always carried a 'look' of it's era since at least the 70's if not before. Eg Golf and Polos have looked similar at the front since the late 70's.
