One downside

Pics would be helpful.

Saw something in a now-discarded mag showing previous & subsequent BMW noses... the Z4 or whatever it was: whew !

Let me guess- the Charger/ 300 already meet this standard... ;)

In general I agree that relatively, it's 'clodhoppin' up designs, but most designs were too low to begin with anyway.

Cars like Charger, 300, Camaro, Mustang, etc., can meet the standard without looking goofy because they are based on designs that look right with the height. Where things get ugly is with other cars that seem to be designed with a lower nose in mind such as the current Malibu, or the XTS - these cars end up looking like they have something tacked-onto the nose or piled on the hood. When coupled with the trend of headlights being drawn way back into fenders, the result is hideous.

The Taurus, MKS, and LaCrosse looks like they were designed w/ the standard in mind..they seem as high as an SUV at the cowl..
