funny that, i have an xb with the xb gt bonnet and grill but i much prefer the xa grill personally.

The plastic xb grill is a heap of problems when it comes to the weather and deterioration.

the bull nose bonnet looks pretty tuff though. could do some serious pedestrian damage (i am sure the designers didn't have that in mid though).

Not too sure which models had that one?

i vote for the xa.

I actually like the xb front better but i grew up with an xa in the driveway and i've always had a thing for them.

Plus you've already got your name as danxagt! May as well go for the xa now :)

Love them both.

But have seen something unusual, XA with a XB front end. Burnt orange with silver "black outs"

I prefer the XA. Looks tougher!!!

In fact, XA is my favourite GT of all. Used to have one years ago, would love to get another one now!!!!!

Love them both too, but please what ever you get dont put the XB front on an XA and vice versa, A GT should remain ORIGINAL as much as possible,I dont like seeing XA/b/c front's on other model's also fairlane front's on Falcon's, Dont hack a classic.

XA - Hands down.

XA front end looks better on a Coupe - 100% IMHO. However, I prefer a XB GT sedan more than a XA, but that's just me.

Here's a few pics of the frontend of me mates XAGT coupe, though it does have a GS grille, look tuf as anyways

Love it!
