I think the AU's biggest problem was that grill in the first series and the droopy rear end. The roofline and crease is I guess a personal thing. I tend to think they were the better designed parts of the car. We should probably wait till the car is released and then make a decision on the styling.
The AU's downfall has always been its nose (dog ugly lights / grille ,except Xr) and butt - to droopy taurusy - the side & middle bit's ok.
