BA v VY for looks

reading this forum it seems very obvious how everyone believes the BA is much better looking than the VY. And i can't blame you when you look at the photos, i believe the same. But has anyone seen both in the metal for real. Been reading that other forum and they've mentioned that the BA looks "chunky."
judging from the reported weight of the BA this is easy to believe. But has anyone seen these 2 cars and can comment on them for what they are and not how they appear in photos


PS why don't ford ever do testing in WA :(

It has been described to me from someone that works with them and has driven the XR6T as..
Low, Wide, Predator like and Balanced. I think ‘Chunky’ is a dedicated Holden fans way of describing what I just

I used to describe the VT as an aggressive looking jellybean.

Design for every step.
