I thought the BA release date was sometime in September. We are supposed to be getting some in by the end of this month or start of next month at work.

How can the engine be too powerful for the gearbox? I'm quite sure that the mustang box (T Series) will come standard across the range and it's handling 250kw at the moment without any problems.

I am told T series box is rated to around 520nm... so what does that suggest about XR8 power & torque.... :s6:

Why no 6 seat/ column auto? What about the taxis, and large familys? They really dont cater for large families anymore. Sell the Expedition or Excursion here then, or both! (by the way, I saw a really nice Excursion Limited a couple weeks ago) Oh I posted that already!
