it really doesn't bother me if it looks like a bmw. the equus has some similarity to an LS460 too, but when looked closely they're pretty different. in the '14 equus thread though we saw that it has a new shifter that looks very similar to a bmw. personally i think it's a mistake to blatantly copy because just when the copy is launched the original will launch something new and the copy will end up looking dated.
but there's so many similarities among so many models and brands these days, i'm over who appears to be copying whom.
dictates of economy, space, function, prevailing tastes will inevitably produce similarities.
from what i can tell though, this new genesis looks great. long wheelbase, great wheel fitment, short front overhang.
