A fair question Ben!
Ford Fanatic summed it up pretty well. I'm by no means against all stripes - there is a time and place for most styling cues, but on the BA FPV range, they simply don't belong. They work well and look good on other cars, but they simply don't suit the character or design of the BA.
Ford has introduced a heavy European DNA into the BA and this is a great thing. This also dictates a more subtle form of aggression, achieved through a tough stance and clean lines, rather than through stickers and over-the-top plastic add-ons (although I'm not a huge fan of the rear spoiler!). M5 instead of Veilside, in other words.
Does that answer the question sufficiently?
