A quick BARRA question...

Not very important, but will BARRA carry on the trend seen on commodores and falcons for years, that the series-I will get the ornage rear indicator lights? I would presume so, but They just look pretty crap, the clear indicators look so much better.

It really dpends what style the rear indicators are? Apparently they look similar to the Audi A4 & A6 so I imagine they will go clear straight away. Interesting that Ford had clear rear indicators on the EF, then changed them to orange on the EL.

And the exact opposite for wagons! Dark translucent orange on the EF and frosted white on the EL's.

I don't think it will matter whether they are clear or orange on the first series. We'll like them and then when Series II comes out with different lenses we'll suddenly like the newer ones more.

I loved the clear lenses of the EF but not I think the EL's look better. But I guess I'm a little biased as well!

THose of us who are passionate about our tail-lights can always do a "Monaro" when Series II comes out...

They will be clear indicators.

The orange tinge they added to the AUII series Fairmont looked poxy IMO, the large badge didn't float my boat either.

Clear ones look better IMO. The ones in my AU1S look Crappy compared to my brother's AU1 Fairmont's clear lenses.
