What I hear is: I'm a xenophobe with a neo-colonialist mindset, who won't accept designs that come from a fundamentally different, non-Western culture, as valid, original attempts, to design a car that expresses that respective culture. I like when Asian brands copy Western brands or do boring and beige vanilla designs, because then I can point my finger at them, laugh and feel good about being born in 'murica(even if I had no actual contribution to it).
You can deny it all you want, but that's the way it is.
And btw, I'm not Japanese(or even Asian), but the attitude of some of my fellow 'muricans is just unsupportable.
I like that wheel, very clean and metallic.
