AU vs AUII

Hi all,

Sorry, new to this and don't know if this is the right place to ask. I'm looking at buying a 99 to 2000 model falcon forte, and was wondering what the key differences are between the AU and the AUII. They looked almost identical tech spec wise, unless I miss something?

I would appreciate any advice!

Thanks Heaps,

Andy

Have a read of that. AU1 isn't as good and AU2 looks much better. Go the AU2 the AU1 makes me sad.

Re: AU vs AUII

Mostly cosmetic differences mate. I do know that the AU2 got bigger better brakes though, as well as a nicer interior instead of the light boring greay that i have in my AU1.

Re: AU vs AUII

where is the comparo between AU 1 and 2? It shows the 1999 update but the series II didn't come out till 2000.
Doesn't look like the sites been updated since.

Breathe! It's only the internet....

Re: AU vs AUII

The AU2 got bigger brakes, revised control arms on the front end, laminated firewall for reduced cabin noise and temperature, a better looking dash imo, and a heap of other little things, the AU3 was better again.
If you can afford a AU3, you would be on a winner imo. Great car

Re: AU vs AUII

Im thinking of getting an AU2 very soon. Ford says they are around 14k but it must be a manual and it must be red so im gonna have fun finding one. If anyone knows one in brisbane with that discription then let me know (must be at a car yard). Bratha im guessing you can get an au1 around 10k while an au2 14k an au3 19k. Probly best to go the au2 has less km's and looks better the au1's have the bonnet crease and yuck grille though some people like it. If you go to redbook.com.au you can have a look around at prices and what different models offer.

Re: AU vs AUII

AU2 wheels were 16" as a minimum size. AU1 were 15" as a minimum size.
Plus what was said above.
