    Does the new halo still features the seat saving purge button? Cheers.

    @PullYourselfTogetherMan Enquiring minds must know, does the old face plate fit? Lever height ok? I believe they changed the diaphragm. Cheers

    Me thinks Simon wants a HALO (with a "retro" face lift)....

    Busted by Bob...

    Sounds like a good name for a rock band.

    I still haven't heard back from EE telling me they received the faceplate. Once I do, I'll be able to tell you price, specs and function. Looking forward to it.

    Before, during and after.

    Halcyon and EE are great.

    Great, from ugly to pretty. Reg functions as it should? I see they are using a new diaphragm, I wonder how much difference that makes, if any. If it was noticeable then I guess could be used on a G250V.

    Ugly indeed! Its a strange choice, the redesign. I don't know why Halcyon decided to do it. I think it might have had to do with how similar it looked to the G250/260 platforms.
