Let's see,
1: Styling that's not going to offend Joe Public/and or standard car looks "sportier"

2: Have IRS standard on all models, wagons included. Ute gets away with cart rear end. Possible IRS option.

3: Build quality that is by far the best in Australia if not boardering on rivaling "prestige' makes.

I know you asked for 3 aspects but, better fuel economy on all models would be a good thing.

Russell's 2 cents.

1/ Better paint quality! If you plan to continue with shoddy spray efforts, release AV in orange ONLY to suit the 'peel' effect.

2/ Iron out those bugs you've had since EA. No diffs probs, no ball joint issues, etc etc. It's been 14 years already.

3/ Ditto with Gaz, better seats, but add improved driver seating position in with that.

1. No orange peel spray jobs
2. Better lateral support in the seats
3. 3 spoke steering wheel instead of the damn 4 spoke jobbie.

1. Seats and seating position (i think this warrants one point!)

2. Interior fit and finish - finally put to rest any negative comparisons against the so-called "competition"

3. Exterior styling and stance - it's gotta be good lookin from base models up, and stylishly aggressive on XR / T-Series. Stance has to be low and mean, but stylish, take a leaf out of the AMG or Brabus book here.

That plus new engine = big sales = me buying = me happy. :s5
