The ute doesn't look too bad, but a bit odd with that bulge. Oh well!!

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

Thumbs up

Looks awesome, the ute that is not the bulge, love that front bar. The ute would probably look better without the bulge imo.

is it a real car holden are making or just a body kit?
If holden are actully making them then hahahahahahahhaha.
If they don't need the bulge they shouldn't get it.
I define un nessasary and usless addons to cars as rice. Regardless of weather or not they look alright.

Breathe! It's only the internet....

unless your looking at a custom manifold or a manifold of the LQ4 or a pd blower as such the bulge is pretty much rice (kinda like the bulge on the gull wing xr6t).

A bonnet bulge however is not unique to the Xr8 and GT.

NOpe, The buldge doen't go. It's not sharp enough to suit the car
