How's the sales

Can anyone from a dealership give an indication of how many BA's are being ordered and if there is a long waiting list for the XR6T ?

All reports i've had so far has been all positive to all models of the BA range, particularly the Turbo's. Quite a lot of interest and good comments on the new model.

How many car blokes are on the forums that can give some figures!

Visited a dealer yesterday. Had everything except XR's.
When asked why no XR's his response was a simple "Keep selling 'em". I was told about 2 months wait for XR's.

How he manages this when he has none for a test drive surprises me. XR6 T is on top of my shopping list but I'm not parting with a cent until I can drive one.

I'm waiting for the XR6T to lob at any Ford dealer in Sydney, so i can take a test drive.

Pending the results i'll be getting a Phantom 6T. I hope to have one before Christmas. But at the rate ford are pumping them out, i doubt i'll get it before easter!

Nice choice, be interesting to see your comparo and assessment against your Toyota Chaser especially if the XR6-T.

I wont be able to afford any of the XR range for some years to come, but, if Ford sell a bunch of em now, that'll mean by the time i can buy one there should be plenty of 2nd hand models to choose from and prolly a lower price tag too (y'know demand and supply and all...)

Only one thing i can say to that...Yee Haa

XR6T ... all gone

The biggest improvement in orders / sales is definitely in Fleet.

We have also seen the retail side take a big leap - but it is fleet that are killing 'em at the moment !!

The residuals on the new cars are being recognised as matching Holden - which has made a huge difference. Also, most fleets are trying to spread their risk by having a mix of makes on their books.

As far as XR6Ts .... all of the available stock has been sold. It will be a few months on the waiting list if you order one now.

All good news if you look at it from a company perspective
