Well, I think its easy for us to criticize people like that when all the big-wigs at every damn turn who know nothing about our passion, continually turn to someone like him because hes the first name that rolls of the tip of their tongue. However, on the same token, he was around before all of the reality shows started to come around, and made his name by putting out his many creations. I certainly wouldnt go as far as to say the man isnt creative, he works hard on his designs and I can see the frustration in his face when something doesnt work out right. I know I certainly dont have the skill or talent he does.
At his level of the game you don't have the luxury of having projects not turn out right. In my opinion he has joined the many who pimp themselves out for increased exposure when in reality they can barely keep up with the work they have now.
I think the rear bumper extension on the XLR looks pretty good, maybe with the exception of the fitting exhaust tips. I think the XLR-V could have done better than just keeping the stock front and rear bumpers.
