    hmm does it look like a 100k car? the interior is quite plain in my opinion, i find the interior in my C4 more interesting...

    I like the C6 though it still has some fussyness about it. Like the fog lights either side of the number plate - imagine how that will look Down Under with non-eoru style plates fitted - and those reflectors in the lower half of the bumper. Sort thing you see on a Commodore when they have forgotten about them until the very last minute. Also the centre console isn't special enough, but for economies of scale they had to use the 407/C5 bits.

    Good point. The fitting of the 407/C5 interior parts is also very dodgy, doesn't represent a 100k car... as far as i'm concerned. There are better options in that price range..

    I think in Oz it will be an $80k car, a competitor to the 607. It will still only be worth $60k in real terms. A good secondhand buy.

    Come to think of it, does the C6 use COM2000?

    I haven't seen any up-close interior photos to say a definitive yes, but every other PSA car Down Under does.

    Found this interior shot. Looks like the familiar PSA switch gear on the steering column.

    Centre airvents could have come from a previous generation VW Passat and the auto stick could've come from a Magna too

    Those airvents are a joke! ugh!

    Sensational looking car on the outside though.

    Like the Alfa 166, I think it will be rare, but its a cool sight every time you see one.

    Well Aston Martin use Volvo airvents and electric window switches in the V8 Vantage, DB9, and Vanquish. I wonder how many AM owners know. I bet if you looked hard enough you'd probably find a Ford badge on something.

    ...and a pedant like me noticed the S40's accelerator pedal looks awfully like a Focus' one

    All the components you can't see, touch or smell basically are worth sharing. I suspect cluey T5 owners might ask their Ford dealer next year for some engine parts if they need them. Having said that, there are differences in shared parts too - eg. the Fords that use the Volvo P2 platform have their suspension components made of steel versus the aluminium on the Volvos (lower unsprung weight).

    Isn't the boss usually in the centre of the steering wheel?

    No I know what you mean. Interesting that they didn't use the fixed hub design like in the C4.

    I think they didn't use the fixed hub design, because it's a bit too quirky for a prestige vehicle. I think it would look out of place. It fits well in the C4, as it goes hand in hand with the LCD speedo..

    The C6 has a digital speedo and a heads-up display. I would have thought the fixed hub steering wheel wouldn't have been to much of a challenge. I guess the target audience is very conservative.

    Ah yes, you can't get too quirky at the prestige end of the market. At that end the buyers tend to be conservative.

    I would have though a digital dash and heads-up display would have been a lot more quirky than a C4 like steering wheel.
