Picked up the new beast yesterday. Boy what a difference 20kw makes (probably 'cos of the manual box too?). Wouldn't believe its the same motor! Am trying to get some photo's of the mod's on here.

20kws turns into 30kes and then 40kws and then a blower, and then a 6 speed and then NOS....etc etc etc... good to see!

Well done on the new AUIII.

Wish I could talk my employer into providing new Falcons instead of the commies that they keep buying.

Funny in that they used to provide Falcons until Ford changed the fleet discount structure when the AU's were first introduced.

Lets hope they think about changing back when the Av's hit the market.

That being said Minge, we're way past a lazy 40kW!
