Latest Fairlane

Yeah i was driving into work this morning and saw the latest fairlane millenium with the azzura mags and two tone paint.
Personally i don't like the azzura mags, i'd rather the XR8 ones.

But Iooking at it, i think it really needs a spoiler, not a huge one like a ricer spolier but a lip on the boot like the AU falcon classics. Just to give the back end abit of definition. Looks quite nice up front i think. Whats everyones opinion.

Oh yeah another last option thats never going to happen a manual tranny.:D :D :D

Is that the one with the spoked mags like the AU2 TE50 or am I thinking of another limited run model.:eek:
If it is my only complaint would be that it needed to be lowered, but still Fairlanes are more plush than sporty.

Did you mean this? It's the 75th aniversary Fairlane they released last year.

While we are on the topic of the Fairlaine, I saw an XR8 Allan moffat Special at Bayford today that had the whole kit., ie dash console controls done in silver.

God it looked ugly!

It'll be interesting to see how the AV Fairlanes will look. What do you guys reckon will change? For mine it'll be the front bumper/lights and the c pillar leading into a different boot..

Question

I have to say that I have no idea of what the updated fairlane will look like, I can't even get a picture in my head off what changes they will make, unlike the Falcon where you have an idea on what changes are going to be made.:CraZ:

I think the biggest problem the Fairlane has got is the C pillar. it looks out of context with the rest of the car...
