I want my swoop!

I am still not totally convinced on the appearance of the BA. When I see it in the flesh it might change my opinion.
The one thing that I LOVE about the AU XR's is the swoopy bonnet line. It sets it apart from any other car and has to be the best attribute of the AU's, apart from the V8's that don't consume oil or need to be rebuilt, it's handling and build quality. The BA XR has lost some of its uniqueness.
I'm going to miss the swoop.

Wow. You are a hard man to please GTHO!

Despite the scores of individual changes to the Falcon, you want to keep a pair of creases on the bonnet?

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I would much prefer the myriad of changes (all improvements IMHO) on the BA's styling to the probable handful only on the VY Commodore, other than a new rear end that has been reported to be much squarer and bearing more than a passing resemblance to the current AU Fairlane!!!

Seems to me that maybe Holden has gone retro (and at least more more US influenced) and Ford has gone forward (and more European influenced).
