Thumbs up My first BA

Hi guys,
I Picked up my first Ba yesterday (XLS Ute) and I was amazed at the difference between it and the AU3 XLS that I handed to the Dealer, Although I have only done just over 100klms so far first impressions count for a lot in my book.
Besides the looks the most noticable differences include in no particular order: More power, Quieter, More comfortable and rides more like a sedan. I suppose what I am really saying is
thank you very much and congratulations to all at Ford.

I can't wait for next year and my XR8.

Cheers, Bazza.

No bars, unfortunately I couldn't justify them for a work ute.
Just the basic Mud Flaps, Weathershield and Floor mats.
