every BMW with black kidneys looks like pieces have fallen off the car
When I was a kid, I would see a lot of late-gen Ford Aerostars, and every time I became distressed that the badge wasn’t centered vertically in the grille. Why would they do this?
Every Acura from the past 15 years is still riding the coattails of this lineup. We car nerds often talk about how long it takes to change public perception in the case of say, Cadillac — 15 years after the CTS, and they’re all still just “an old man” car to many in the general public (the sedans at least).
