I agree advertising does cost money, but the saying goes "you have to spend money to make it!" FOA needs to do as well as it possibly can! Although its sales figures are good they need to get better. With production, we can actually build more cars than holden if we ran day/afternoon shift like they currently do. Even at the moment, the FOA production line is running 10hrs a day 6 days aweek. We need the incoming orders to be big enough to demand a second shift for the future, so why not promote the hell out of the BA now especially before the next crumpledoor comes out with newer motors and stuff?
I just figure that because their car appears to be inferior to ours in transmissions, engines, body structure and so one that their marketing machine must be good at pulling the wool over peoples eyes. Holden fans are generally far more supportive and one eyed about their cars than we are! Their marketing is excellent!
I drove a VY executive the other day. I generally class myself as having a balanced opinion and able to see things for their merits. I didn't like the commodore! It had alot of wind noise, you need a magnifying glass to read the heater controls and things like that. They are however alot easier for a tall person to get in and out of due to the better angle of the a pillar. Its interesting what different people see in a car. Friends of mine don't like the falcon due to not being able to open the rear doors far enough to get big feet out, and they are right! But to me that doesn't matter as I don't drive from the back and my three year old daughter doesn't have big enough feet yet!
BLOODY AWESOME FALCON
