It's a shame because I seen my first Lancer yesterday! it looks much better in real-life, I really like it. This is just dissapointing.

Its arguable but a tall argument to say the new lancer facelift has E90 lights imho. However, the facelift is looking good I think.

Not too surprising, after all, Asian car makers have always copied styling cues from European and even some American cars, still disappointing.

Mitsubishi has a longstanding history of copying styling cues from other vehicle brands. When Lexus came out with the RX, guess who copied the tail light arrangement? Oh, and when the RX changed the tail light arrangement for its newer models, guess what Mitsubishi did?

Hasn't it only been a year? It already needs a facelift?

It seems like they come out with a new one every 3 months, at least BMW waits 3 years for a face-lift.
