Is It Just Me?

What's the Big Difference?

Lately, I've taken a liking to the newer Honda CR-V (the fact that I know the name of a car should be very impressive. I have little to no knowledge about cars!).  I think they're really cute, sleek, un-soccer mommish, yet roomy.  I also think that they look very similar to the BMW SUV that I see all around town.  When I shared this resemblance with Troy, however, he laughed at me as if I had just compared a pair of Manolo Blahnik's with red pumps from pick-n-pay.  

But, I'm still pretty convinced that the Honda CR-V looks similar to the BMW X5 (clearly, I had to look up the name of the BMW!)  Also, the pictures don't do it justice!  Today on my way home from work I saw a sky blue BMW X5 and a sky blue Honda CR-V and that's when I decided to stand more confident in my analysis.  What do you think? ::smiles!::

Can you tell which is which?

Wondering if it's just me,


  1. Yeah, I think I can tell the difference. It's slight, but the bodies do vary in style :0

  2. I'm not a big car person, but I don't see much of a difference. The biggest difference that I see is with the grill. Again, I don't know cars, so take it with a grain of salt.

  3. The cars look similiar built wise, but there are some extreme difference in terms of mpgs, longevity and parts.

    But I see whatcha saying re: the look ;-)

  4. Morgan sent me a comparison on the two cars:,10573

  5. Shunta, I was suppose to comment on this a week ago. lol sorry it has taken me so loooong but I think this is an interesting comparison! Yes I can tell the difference I like that you've taken such an interest! Hopefully Troy will use this new found interest in automobiles and get you interested in motorcycles! :) I met this young lady this week that has her own bike and she rides with her husband. If you'd like I can put you in contact with her and maybe she'll be willing to give you a few lessons!


When you leave me a comment, I get an email on my iPhone. I check your comment, I smile. I am then even happier than I was before. That sunshine spreads to everyone I come into contact with that day. Puppies live longer, flowers don't wither, and world peace is inches closer!! See what leaving a comment does!!! Hurry, write me!
