confused

It seems as though this type of headlight treatment is becoming pretty standard across the auto industry..

I am with you there too Jem. Don't like the interior at all. I assume the car has climate controls but it looks as though there is no digital reading to select the temp. All done with dials. This retro thing the car makers have going at the momment is a worry.

Yeah the lights needs abit of getting use to, but like what Ford Man said seems all the car industry are moving to this new style front end.
Seems the day of a longer front and rear over hang are gone, as are the narrow and wide headlights.

But given time it might grow on people. Just like the AU it has earn't my liking. Just poped down to city ford about 1/2 hour ago and i must say i like that limited release Falcon SR.

Now that I have seen the drive article on the web, I am not so sure about the front look.

Ah a new victim for the mighty star to destroy. BTW that $60,000 Fairlane/Statesman would have more room and be more touble free then the $200,000 BMW/Merc S class. Not mention better retained value in 5 years!
