The headlights of the Opel Vectra and the Ford Fusion look almost identical... What's up? One is a GM product and the other is a Ford product.

Seems to be the current rage...eyebrow design!! I don't like em much though. Even the new focus has similar headlights.

Should we all thank Bangle for introducing this concept??

Well observe properly... the Vectra has bigger lights than the Fusion. Then see the reflector of the Fusions headlight! The Vectra has different kind of lights!( may be xenons ). I would not call it almost identical at all!

Stratos, what we meant was the design principle was the same, not the actual headlamp assembly

I must admit, however grudgingly, the 6*series is a marvel...
