given that the basic shape is the same do we reckon that the front would be a simple bolt-on? i mean it might be our cheapest way at getting into a BA lol AU utes ive seen for 18 g and 98 Fairmont V8 Wagons i have seen for 17 g i reckon a front change would cost, say, 1200 bucks?? food for thought hey?
I dunno about a BA front on an AU, but I've seen an AU ute with a Fairmont front on it. It looked a hell of a lot better than a base model ute, and I wish that Ford would've changed the ute's front to AU2 when the sedan was released (or not long after).
You never know, we might start seeing a few mutant AU/BA's around after the release (maybe 6 moths or so).

nah you got me wrong i think the sedan would look shite but since the wagon and ute will be mainly unchanged then it would be kinda cool i hate the AU front and for that reason i wouldnt buy one but i love the BA nose so yeah i reckon someone will end up doing it
