Tell him he's dreaming...

The BA is not an AU with a new back and new front. Somthing like 5% of that car is from an AU and thats it. The rest is new.
Where as 90% of the VY is an old VX. I read in the West Australian motoring section the VY is a "sophisicated high-tech dash". My 1965 XP dash is more sophiscated and high-tech then that thing. It's UGLY! :oo1: If the VY does outsell the BA it'll show you how STUPID the holden demographic is. It'll also show you that the fleet sales market is absolutely bias.

ummm yeah... VY is 95% carryover and BA is 5%..... you just keep beleiving that. The Holden demographic, is largely the same one as Ford's.

Sorry if I've missed something but what do you know that nobody else here knows about the carryover content of each vehicle and why shouldn't anybody NOT believe that statement?:oo1:

The doors on BA are a carry over from AU ... would've cost $25 million a door to replace them ... makes sense to me :s6:
