I think that the USA guys would alter their views if the F20 M Sport was available there.
The F20 M Sport Estoril Blue in the flesh is flash.
Perhaps, it is a European thing to make bold styling as something everyone talks about, then they get to like it for being a new direction.
The original Citroen DS had very large lights when it first came out and now it is noted as a Icon of style.
Perhaps you should take notice that nearly every new car coming on the market is coming out with emorous light sets. Some of them go halfway along the fender (guard panel) now.
It seems that the big light the new bling on cars. Look at all the new Daylight running lights in all sorts of shapes. At least the F20 looks serious when its angle eyes are on, unlike some of the others with iluminated eye brows
