"Wait till u see it in the flesh"
I am a Holden fan, and though i know everyone here likes it, i am CONFUSED at how many ppl here think the GT should be different or better. This forum is like what LS1 was when the leaked pics of the VY got out. Its the first BA based car that ppl are saying "wait till you see it in the flesh" to.
The only thing thats built your hopes up is the XR8. Many ppl have mentioned this as, visually the XR8 was a good starting point. The way I see it, i think FPV has gone for the restrained look. I reckon the GT looks elegant and stylish, just not aggressive. I reckon thats a good thing. What would eveyone here be saying if it had a bodykit like a HSV?
HSV wanted to make the Y series visually different to a SS. By doing so, hardly anyone here likes them as to Ford fans it looks shit, too plasticky or too ricey. So i guess you dont want the GT to look like a Y series then? Just as the first T series was a restrained car and gradually got aggressive till the T3's i think the same will happen to the new GT. So maybe you can look forward to a blacked out bulge, in the near future.
At the end of the day, its performance and driveability that counts. Unfortunately for us Holden fans, I dare say that I think FPV will be the performance leader in aussie cars until the GenIV comes out in Holdens. So, stop trying to change a good product and enjoy your bragging rights as i can tell ya, it wont last long............. :)
