Well thats your opinion :) In the flesh it looks liek a BMFord, it is far too euro, the interior is ok, but very bland.

For me to put a car standard on 19's is a bad move away from the family audience.

For me seeing it yesterday made me wish i never seen it. I am defiantly not liking it

I like it... in the launch the back end looked very bland and very bloated... But from what Darren has posted in the news section, i like it!

I haven't stomached a whole lot yet, watched the launch and refreshed the GM site to see where the pics were going to show up to get them up on JC.

Now I've done my bit it's time to sit back and sift through the whole lot.

My initial thought was hey this doesn't look half bad, I don't know about the flared guards or colour coded interior but I guess like all of the other releases it will grow on me.

i think its gonna be sweet for the high end models, i personally liked the calais + caprice, wished they showed at the launch the base model omega(previously executive) and a six speed auto will be good

the VZ was still australia's biggest seller and they haven't changed it too much. they are smarter than to try and fix what isn't broken.

i think they've done OK. it does look just slightly like a ford with the headlights and some of the lines, especially in the gun metal grey pics i've seen.
