BA XR popularity

Most of your have probably seen this but for those that haven't, I was happy to see how well recieved it was
HERE, especially by the Holden fans. I've also been noticing that the VY spy pics seem to be making quite a few unhappy about where Holden is going.... interesting. I think it looks OK actually.

I just want to say I personally love the new XR look. I've always preferred the more subtle approach (so yes I loved the S1 T-series). So when I'm old enough and earning enough I think I'll get a black XR Turbo lowered, spoiler removed, tinted, bigger wheels... :s5

I think Ford is going to sell heap and heaps of XR's, be they XR8's or XR6 turbo's. So far I like what I see, but it still depends on what motors, how powerful they are, what the interior and the dash looks like before I decide which one I'll buy.

BOSS 5.4lt Quad cam V8 is mine
MkI BA XR8 with SS inductions, BMC air filter, Herrods Air Injection, Pacemaker extractors and cats back exhaust.

The artist impression in Motor is the real deal. The front end is spot on, exactly what will be released.

If the pic in MOTOR is very close, then i reckon Holden have copied Ford!
The front air-dam/spoiler look very similar to the AU2-3 XR body kit. Any one agree?

That ain't a spy shot... It's computer generated. You can tell, because, A) the fog light on the right is too big for the one on the left, and B) the lights dont match up.
But, that may just be the wonderful Holden quality control...
