Great article! While I agree with some of his observations, they are rather ill-informed.
If a manufacturer wants to call his car a coupe, then it's a coupe regardless of what others may think. After all, it was the car makers that first came up with these designations. I always smile a bit when someone says something like, "That's not a Bulgemobile!" when the nameplate clearly says "Bulgemobile."

On the other hand, I love light-up badges, they remind me of the lighted Indian on Pontiacs. I totally agree on fake exhaust tips and grilles that are blocked off but--if other folks like them, who am I to criticize? To me, the gigantic grilles on some of the Asian designs are hideous. Fortunately for them, my opinion doesn't seem to have much impact on their sales!
