Re: MMS Typhoon Pics - LARGE

It's nice but really, theres nothing to distingish it from any of the other FPV's. Looks like more of the same to me.

Re: MMS Typhoon Pics - LARGE

Thanks for the pics Russ!

General ramblings... (nothing new for me)

* I prefer these rims to the GT but not GTP
* Rear spoiler is better than GT/GTP
* GT foglights are better
* The red F6 badge in the grille isn't really my cup of tea but it is an obvious Japanese influence
* Standard issue style exhaust tip is disappointing
* Rear Typhoon badge on the boot looks like a hastily assembled afterthought, and a prime candidate for de-badging asswipes
* It really should have got the Ghia chrome trim above the rear number plate like JR has done
* The mesh style really misses the mark by a lot - the GT and XR mesh is much tidier - this just looks fussy and detrimental
* Intercooler looks wussy (and no different to XR6T one) but must operate adequately


All in all I still like it - and I applaud their approach of restraint in design. The execution could have been a bit better in the above areas but, as much as I DETEST the statement, it may well look better "in the flesh".

Any interior pics yet Russ?

I've got one of these on order, agree with the badge and grille comments, although by production time things may change a bit. The intercooler is definately bigger than the standard T, and polished like the salesman said it would be. The shoebox exhaust tip can always be changed to twin chrome extension pipes All in all a nice looking machine I reckon. How it performs will be the real issue (note Brembos are still an option not a standard feature).
