mad

I see that the Falcon has lost another comparison test, this time in NZ's Autocar magazine.
The comparison was between Diamante base model, Crumbledore Executive and the Forte, basically the Falcon's slowest in a straight line between the 3, still handles better than the Executive though worse than the Mitsi and was worst when it came to design and engineering.

Bring on the AV fast!!!!!

I'll agree to that, i take it the Diamante is the Verada in Australia. Well we definitly need the AV fast and more importantly with "POWER" and more of it. :D :D
