Is anyone else disturbed with the four headlights instead of two large ones in the early concept? Why the small one next to the large?

I was at first-- but it's growing on me. You can always buy a kit to fix that, which is what I plan to do if they keep that hideous grille.

It's been said nearly a million times now, the production car will not have 4 headlights; those are glued/velcroed on. The Fbodfather himself has said this a number of times.

you can clearly (well, not so clearly in fact ) see, that the fuel door is on the passenger's side. from distance, it looks square, when you zoom on it, it looks more oval, but it's there

I believe what was said was more along the lines of the lights currently in the pre-production models are not the lights that will be used in production. I don't ever remember hearing someone say there will not be 4 headlights.

Also, as a side note....the comment about the lights being "from Auto Zone" was made long before the spy pics of the front end emerged. How do we know that the lights they are showing here weren't put in after the comment was made about the Auto Zone lights?

With all of that said. I really hope GM gives us the Halo's....not as an optional setup, as the only setup. Those on the concept just made the car look really mean. Even Bumblebee's lights weren't as good looking.

I think the fuel door issue is alot like looking at clouds: you see what you want. If you look hard, it could be on top, on the passenger side, or drivers side. I still haven't seen anything that looks like a fuel door in any of these shots, despite the outlines

He also came out after the photos where released and said he's surprised everyone is bitching becuase he warned us..

Give it up on the headlights already...

And while we are at it.. same with the gas cap..
This is just a figment of some imagination..


Dont see it in this shot.. ITS NOT THERE

For brnkly2 - On the light setup: Large one, bright light. Small one dim/projector type, Smallest third one, turn signal. My Mazda6 is set up like that. But we won't have to worry about that, right?

If you notice the grille is part of the headlight assemblies, so that is not gonna be the final one also. But it does look very similar to the concept.

Maybe we could talk them into putting two fuel doors on the car and you can use which ever one you like. I'm just trying to be fair.

Just as an observation don't the rear quarters on the black car look different than the ones on the white car and the camo car pictured earlier? Or are my eyes deceiving me?

As much as I can't see the filler door on the passenger side in the pics, it isn't on the driver's side either. In the 2nd pic, you can see that it isn't on the driver's side, but it kind of looks like it's on the top of the driver's rear quarter.

I can't tell for sure in any of these pics. I'm still hoping, but as I've said before, it isn't a deal breaker.
I totally don't see any gas cap on the passenger side... I actually don't REALLY see a gas cap anywhere! But it will make me feel better if I act like I see one on the driver's side!

ok, i HAVE to put my $0.02 in, just because i have a very active imagination. now what if, instead of putting the filler door on the rightside, and instead of putting the fancy chrome gas cap on the top of the driver side fender, what if they put a normal fuel door (namely a body color peice like what is on the passenger side) in the same place as what is on the concept, and give the buyers a choice of a normal body color door, or a concept look alike style door. that would be kinda cool. plus if that was done, if you did the normal door, the body lines would still flow perfectly, and TAG would still be able to fill his car up from the unique top-of-the-fender position. what do you guys think?

There have been whispers (WHISPERS, mind you - nothing remotely close to official confermation) that there will be more than one grille for this car.....

And you nailed it!! It's really amazing how much difference a color can have on what you see/don't see - and the beauty is it's totally individual.

Apparently, Black does a better job at hiding aspects of the car than white!

It's probably what they would have done...but the main reason for no cap on the top of the fender we're being told is crash-standards, and safety ratings. So...body color or shiny, pretty concept cap - it wouldn't change a saftey rating.

I think for the gas cap there should be a compromise: on the fender-top but passenger side rather than driver's. I can't imagine it would make THAT much of a difference to move the filler door up a few inches and orient it a different direction...

But frankly I couldn't care less where it's at...if I decide I want a better door I'll just do it aftermarket.

You guys are hilarious!!!

Gas cap is up top!!!! NO!!! IT's on the side! Seriously, both of those pictures make it look like there's a gas cap. I pray it's up top...and that pic really makes it look that way.

But, that side pic would make more sense...and why, you might ask? Well...look at this pic here.



See how the gas cap is further forward? And this pic?

It's further back...to where it almost makes the gas cap look like it'll be placed right in the center of the trunk lid line (side line of the trunk).

What do ya'll think? Is that gas cap pushed too far back on the black PREPRO to conflict w/ the trunk?

i know. thats why i dont like the crash test standards. i just wanted to see what the responce would be to that. hopefully, seeing as the filler door is on the right side (still hoping for concept style one, but i doubt it), hopefully, they will give us a choice. that would be really cool. th ink i would go with shiny, pretty concept cap (and if they do that, they should put on the option sheet "shiny, pretty concept cap" with a little check box by it. i would die laughing)

I think that might be an optical illusion from the black paint and terrible photos...maybe?
