Father in law needs more convincing

guys, My Father In Law has decided its time for a new car..he's currently driving a vx berlina V8 (about to have its donk overhauled this week for piston slap)..lol.

anyways..I have convinced him to give the Falcons a test drive...He is probably looking at the Fairmont, with V8...but he stated that the LSD cant be optioned with the Monty..(is this true).

He isnt biased towards holden, as his previous car was a EF fairmont, So what I am asking for is some More ammo to get him persuaded to go the blue oval..

His reasoning for a V8 is for towing...and would prefer an LSD diff...

whats the price Difference between the Auto Fairmont V8, and an auto Xr8...?

fire away guys

Re: Father in law needs more convincing

Sounds like its more going to be a service issue he gets at a dealership than the car itself, maybe you should tee up the boys at Strapp Ford, tell them your from the forums and are trying to convert your FIL and can they provide some quality service for you!

Re: Father in law needs more convincing

good point Minge...

He works for Esso (Operations Manager), and therefore is entitled to the fleet buyers discount,,,plus a bonus 1% offerend by ford to Esso Employees...so he is very tempted.

i was suprised to hear LSD isnt an option on the Fairmonts..anyone shed any light on this?..
