OK, So PCOTY had 6 holden products and 2 Ford products.
What was the outcome between the two companies?
1. Commodore CSV $112,000
2. TE50 $64,000 & HSV MONARO GTS $95,000 - EQUAL
3. XR8 220 $48,000
4. Moanro CV8 $57,000
5. Clubsport R8 $67,000
6. Barina $21,000
7. SS Commodore $48,000
What do these results say:
- Unless you want to spend $112,000 then you can choose between a $64K Falcon or a $95K Commodore - both of which are equally ranked - which would you choose ?
- If you can't afford the TE50, what's the next best thing - an XR8 which is a $48K car and is better than the $57K Monaro and the $67K Clubsport
- Who would buy a car which got flogged by a barina - HA HA.
These results speak for themselves.....If you intend on buying any of the above holden products, I think you need to get your head checked.
