Hey Neal is it possible for you to try and photoshop this concept? I think with your skills you can make the grille a little more tasteful. Specifically, I think if you look at the original sketches of this concept the grille actually looks really suitable as a shield over the 5 pointed grille rather than a BIG grin/snout that it is now. Take a look at www.acura.com on the future vehicles section and if possible PLEASE try and photoshop a better looking grille for us to admire! thanks!

I'll take a look at the sketches, but I'd rather not mess with another designer's concepts - attractive or otherwise. I know I don't dislike it as much as I did before, but I think we set the bar so high in our mind's eye and we all so badly want A/H to succeed on a stellar level that we often are disappointed.

Our dreams take such a beating yet we come back for more. That's the quasi-religion (or belief system) of the TOV...

This car is causing such a stir - I wonder if that was the intention?!

haha I see your point. In retrospect I don't know how I would feel if someone messed with my work but I'm sure it does violate on the designer's concepts.

However you bring up a good point about setting the bar too high that we come up disappointed. I too am starting to take the car for what it is and appreciating it a little, but just can't get over that snout!

Also, I think Acura did do great job if the intention was to start a commotion!
