Have you seen...?

Acura's design is at an all-time low right now, but these very cool interactive vapor hologram displays were incredibly cool if a bit hard to see.

Maserati wasn't showing anything new, but this giant badge/coin, metal and glass stand, and "the absolute opposite from ordinary" tagline certainly stood out on the show floor.

Lincoln's new cars weren't amazing, but the very cool art on the stand was worth a look.

Volkswagen's Design Vision GTI Concept (originally seen at the Wörthersee Tour in Austria and making a very brief appearance in LA) and the Honda FCEV have remarkably similar DRG treatments for such different applications.

The huge Mini center console seemed to sum up the brand's new "maxi" positioning-as well as highlighting the much-improved interior.

The infotainment system in Ford's Edge concept was not at its best when I stopped by for photos, displaying instead a dreaded Windows error message.

The Mercedes GLA 45 AMG carried not only some oddly off-message rally-style graphics, but also used a blacked out D-pillar to change the apparent DLO design of the car.
