Yea i know in my town (in WA) i've seen quite a bit more BA's driving around than VY's. Basically the only VY's I've seen around are SS/SV8.

Nice. Should be even more interesting once the ford production line can catch up to the orders and the XR8 and long wheelbase models are released!

Same story here in NZ

Top-selling make for the month was Ford with 881 new cars, followed by Toyota with 846 new cars.

Thats a pretty damn good effort. I am curious though, what were the last couple of months results BOF just to see if the gap closure has been dramatic?

Great stuff. I was speaking to a dealer in Newcastle who was suprised at the demand. He said he's had a lot of EA-EL owners upgrading to the BA who just couldn't get used to the AU styling.

i see a pattern...in the future.

It will start over at the west (where else?) and head towards South Australia....then take over Victoria and Tassie, then move northwards towards NSW and QLD and take over NT finally.
