mad Ba Does Not Look Like A Crummydore

Geez, you only have to look at the pics. The BA looks like a Falcon. I just love the XR front. I think the Holden boys more than a bit worried by the BA, that's why they are sprouting crap like this.
IMHO

Have to agree with you ELXR8. There are slight similarites between them but overall they look different. Anyway the look of the commodore is changing, (don't know hom much), with the VY which is what the BA will be competing against any way.

IMHO I think that the BA looks a lot classier than the VX. Not that the VX is really a bad looking car, but I preferred the VTs. I think the VXs look to fat at the rear IMO.

from Drive.com:

"Despite the wave of indignant e-mails we've received, protesting our comments that Ford's designers have taken a leaf out of the Commodore style manual, it has to be said that chartreuse already is a popular Commodore colour. And, like the Commodore SS and Monaro, the XR sports foglights – and first for Falcon."

To me, the current situation is no different to the EA vs. VN or EF vs. VR comparisons. Anyone who thinks the pair look identical either needs a pair of glasses, or thinks that every sedan in the world looks the same.

I'd like people's reactions on this, but a guy from work who's father works for Holden says that GM helped Ford design the BA, am I the only one not buying this load of crap?

It's not chartreuse anyway, it's Calf Poo Yellow.

And they are nothing alike, the spelling is completely different.

You have to admit though.. both VX & BA when put together in the baby poo brown colour do have similarities. I think this is what people are saying. Doesn't matter anyway. Falcon looks better to me. Looks much better than VY too.. :s6:
