confused T3 Te50??

We've seen tons of info and pics of the TS50, but what about the TE50? - All we know is that the spoke mags (Niceeeeeeeeee:D ) that were optional on the TE are now standard, but still no pics! - The same with the TL50. I maybe just dumb and have'nt clicked yet, so can anyone lear this up for me!?

I think HSE2 and a few other guys have raised this very issue in another post. Have a look in some of the old posts that deal with the T3's. Hope this helps.

Although the TS was /is being shown at the SMS the launch of the models isn't until next month.

At the risk of the wrath of Venom S there could be many reasons for not showing the other models. The TL stays the same so just picture the 5.6 in the engine bay. For the TE just change the wheels.

Most likely Ford don't want to take the attention away from the TS.
They probably figue the TS should be enough to wet people appetite.

Have a read of this quote from an article...it mentions "two" spoilers, maybe there is a slightly different kit for the TE...

A more aggressive styling package has been designed to match the redeveloped powerplant, featuring new front and rear bumpers, a chrome mesh grille, side skirts, rear bumper with exposed exhaust and two new spoilers - the kit on the TE and TS vehicles is modelled on the aerodynamic package fitted to Ford's XR8 Supercars.

Hope the TEs kit is as good as the TSs then. Wonder if the TE uses a mesh grill then? As well as different wheels id guess TE must miss out on driving lights in the front bumper like T1 + T2.

Personally I would like the TL-50 to have a small decklid spoiler aka Statesman. I reckon it will look great. The TL-50 and Fairlane i felt always lacked something in the rear end, although i reckon the rear light arrangement is quite nice.

why didnt the TL50 get the Manual? Even if this was an optional extra.
