Motor Mag

heres the low down on the latest is with a Silver SS on the cover:

A brief drive of an SS (nothing sensational to drive)

235kw only available on SS and SV8
225kw option on Berlina and Calais

Technical details on Barra 240T

ZF 5 speed auto in BA 2 (2004)

Wagon will be axed when 2WD and 4WD Raptor come out (hence the minimal changes down to the BA wagon)

Holden V6 power unchanged

Mitsubishi may do a similar e-commerce approach to fords "secrets revealed" with their magna for mid way next year

The BFYB winnner is.........?????

Why is it BS? - they didn't say it was better than a BA - they said it was better, probably implying it was better than the previous model VX2. Obviously a form of writing too subtle for you.

Unfortunately sig does not apply to this post due bonehead above.

Yeah they did say it handles better with a small improvement in feel through the steering wheel, but still not good.

I haven't read the article yet and thought you were implying that it was better than the BA (and my reasoning behidn the bs was because they haven't driver the BA yet, and it probably wouldn't be better anyways :D).....

Honest mistake...

Turbo DOHC where did you get these details from? Or is this another comm comming from the BS Dept? I don't think they will axe the wagon a rather foolish move.
