Bloody rear end on that looks like an old Magna!
Front is okay with me though.

hmmmm dosnt look to bad to me. Must say the rear lights arent the best, but they look similar to the pics in taped up pics in motor, which also looks good. Front is pretty good to me but theres always room for improvement.

Hmm looks interesting. I don't mind the front that much. Quite conservative however I would expect that to be fixed and more aggressive on T series and XR's, so I don't think that is a problem. The rear Iam not sure about. It looks like a cross between the Magna's and a Volvo V70. :err:

Still with a new lighter IRS across the range and more POWER!! shouldn't be so bad.

On that note of a new IRS being developed it says that it is meant to be lighter version. This is good news as long as it is still as effective as the current setup. Should certainly make for a damn quick car esp. if they reduce weight (XR with IRS etc) and have more power.

Is the AV just a nose + tail rework? No major floorplan or glasshouse changes?
