Can someone tell me what the hell is so good about the current commode, personally I think the VX is a step back from VT but the AU2 is a much better car than the AU1.
I think the VX front and back looks crap the VT ****s over it.

I agree totally. VX teardrop headlights make the car look like it's crying. Rear end on the exec based cars looks incomplete. SS looks damn good though.

However, as said in the article the rounded arch profile of the AU from the rear and the sloping away of the trunk section makes it look like it has a saggy arse. That's why the XRs now have a flatter rear wing and Futura has the small spoiler. Forte doesn't....

I think the AU2 front end in Forte/Futura is actually very nice. Rear end is the bad part :( Here's an idea for the AU3, paint the headlight bezels in a satin gunmetal colour to lessen the 'oversize' impact of the lights.

I've got 5 bucks that says if the current Falcon was badged as a Holden it would sell like hotcakes... Just my feelings on how stupid most car buyers are... (as in "oh it's a Holden. That's a real Australian car"... wankers :evil2: )

You're deffinatly right Ford man long as it says Commodore.

I am not mad on the back of the car myself though and the centre consoul either. Fairmont and T Series's isnt too bad.

I actually don't mind the centre consul. Driving one everyday I don't really notice it. The buttons and dials are in the right place and easy to find which is good. Arse end of the car looks sh!te though... :(
