Originally posted by BLACK XR6-VCT Is it just me, or is the BA Falcon the only car which looks nicer than it's predecessor ?
- For example the new Commodore looks much worse than the VX.
- The new Camry is really awful (even thought Toyota CEO said "We don't want the new Camry to look like whitegoods on wheels" - it does !)
- The new Celica is terrible compared to it's lovely predecessors.
- The new Subaru Imreza is still ugly! - even though the journos say it looks a bit better !?!?
The list goes on....
It's not hard to look better than the AU in most models besides the XR and the T series, especially the T3... but personally, apart from the front of the XT and the XR in the BA, the rest of the car doesn't do much for me.
From front to 45deg front it looks great.. from the side it looks plain, from the rear it looks exceptionally plain, back to the front, horn. Don't know what it is, but when you walk from the front to the side of the car it's like you're looking at 2 different cars.
The T3 AU's looked aggressive no matter what angle and the rear wing squared up the droopy ends and really set it off, I doubt I'll feel that way about the series 1 BA's. If you're looking at it at any angle that doesn't show the front it just looks plain to me.
Originally posted by fte22 The VY Calais looks pretty nice, would pick one over the previous VT/VX run, same for the Berlina and SS. The HSV's are a bit overdone though, give me a VTII Senator anyday!!
Love the VTII Senators, but those insurance premiums.. that's why I'm not driving one today...
