I've not met anyone who was indifferent about the styling of the FX. They either hate it or love it, no in-between. I hear "it's OK" or " what's so different about it" with regards to the MDX or RX but not the FX. I'm glad to report that I've really only heard one very negative remark since I bought it last fall. It came from one of my son's team mates who said, "now that's a rice rocket". Actually, I think he meant it in a good way.
