Question If AV is a downer??

IF AV is not what's expected and you are not happy with it, what would you otherwise consider???

for me...

Fords

170kW Focus RS (would happily pay 40 grand for this baby)
New Mondeo Sport (again if we had them here!)
AUIII XR8
T3

Other

Nissan Skyline GTR (late 90's)
new 200sx

So what about everybody else?

You'll find me at the Sunlong factory...

* New 200sx with APS kit
* R33 GTS-T or GTR if the budget can stretch

Alternatively, you may find me browsing the Ford Racing catalogue, or ringing CAPA or Herrod.

But the question is rhetorical, I seriously think that there's nothing in the AV (or insert proper model designation here) that would outright stop me from getting one. I have less hesitation in getting one of these than say an AU1/2/3. No question.

If the AV is a looser (Which I dont think It will be!) I will probably go for the SS Commo,. I cant really think of anything else that I like! :\

JEM,

It depends how much of a downer it is (not that it will i'm sure of it) if it's totally stuffed then i'd get an AU2 or 3 XR8.

But i should stress however if the all new falcon is front wheel drive V6, has gone smaller to say 4700-4800mm in length then i have to say my money will be going to a Hol Hol Hole you know that brand guys.
Otherwise i'll never deflect.

For me I can honestly say a heard of wild horses will not stop me getting my hands on a barra XR8. I've cleared the biggest hurdle (the missus) so come hell or high water I'll have my barra XR8 around December!
If it's not all that's expected then a runout AUIII XR8 with the Rebel kit or a runout T3 is for me.

I'd go an Avalon.

No seriously I'd stick with Ford or buy a Nissan.
