not surprised really. yes it looks similar, but the copy has a longer, flatter bonnet, foglamps and side repeaer lamps in different positions and other subtle differences. it could and probably was argued that in the modern era of computer aided design, and legalities about pedestrian friendly fronts, that all cars look increasingly similar nowadays anyhow!
