    It does look better than the current Fusion, you should try doing something similar to the Taurus.

    You should try flip floping the headlights.

    I bet that will be the next set of headlights they will use on this thing. They'd be stupid not to!!! Very nice!

    It looks very nice. I do believe that I like Your version of the fusion better than the current.

    Also, nice job so far on the Flex, probably will be pretty close to what the Fairlane (or whatever they call it) will look like.

    Yup. The TauruX definitely has the best 3-bar so far (I can't believe they intended that)
    & the H.lites are ok/good on the Fusion - kinda gives a full-width grille appearance that I think is due for a comeback.

    Other thing - a practical one - IF Ford used the exact same H.light units for the TauruX, Taurus, AND Fusion...
    and used the Milan's on the monSABLEtego (not at all sure that's the case so far)...
    would sharing within each brand instead of by platform across-brands
    allow enough cost-savings for Mercs & Fords to really look diff?

    btw Ford1000, I got a strong hunch about the 'Flex' - want a PM or is your chop perking along just fine?

    Ummmm, like that is what the Taurus looks like.

    I like the Fusion and I like the Taurus as they are.

    BTW, I saw an Edge today with the chrome front painted body color white, and I liked it. There was still adequate prominance of the 3 bar style, but just toned down a tad for those that like their salsa mild.

    Me? I still like it HOT and chrome.

    It's not a bad chop. but I definitely like the real Fusion's styling over this.
