But nether of you know the reasons why they were broken down. I'd be safe to say thay the VY has shat itself but the BA could be a number of things; eg
  • A drink driver getting his car SAFELY home
  • Somewhere who has left their keys in the car
  • Someone who has left the lights on and had the battery go flat
  • Are car being towed from the car yard to the buyers home

Thats to name a few. I could understand him not being a happy chappy with a brand new car going bust but natho is right, we are most likely going to here bad stories from both sides...

I heard a story that a motoring magazine recently had a bender in an XR6-T

Driving on the M5 on Friday afternoon, I saw a VY with it's bonnet up.

I honked my horn and gave him a wave in my reliable XF while I was crawling past him in peak hour traffic.

I saw one with it's bonnet up coming home from work yesterday.
On Burwood Hwy, near the McDonalds in Vermont.
As I got closer to it, he was changing a tyre... so I don't know why he had the bonnet up

yeah thats right why did he have his bonnet up. Maybe in the VY you have to open up the bonet to under a tyre

So thats VY 3, BA 1...

Cars are mechanical.. they will break down at some stage.. The badge is meaningless.

The BA on the TOW truck could have just been getting taken from one dealer to anohter. Happens all the time in brisbane, they use tow trucks to transit stock from dealer to dealer.
