Agree

But what happens when the series 2 comes out, will the market equal out a bit more?

I dunno, but with Holdens profit from last year, im assuming they will still be discounting cars to try and kill Fords chances with the BA.

My local Ford dealer has about 15 or so 2002 plate BA's left, so yeh i can tell you now that Ford isnt selling every car they make, which is a dissapointment.

So true

but I wonder, is it the car or the way the dealership repsents itself to the customer

I am of the opinion now that Ford is back on trak, should it take another step and start to audit the dealer network and make them more responsible?

The dealer is Q Ford Springwood, and everyone in Brisbane know's that they arent the best dealer, but they are usually pretty high in turnover of stock.

BTW if anyone wants a GTP in Mercury they have one that was cancelled, its allready been tinted and had a few other little goodies on it, so its pretty much ready to be registered and driven!

Other Stock Includes

Mercury XR8 - Premium Sound / SSS
Congo Turbo - Premium Sound / Leather / 18's / Moon Roof / Man
Phantom XR8 - Auto
Black XR8 - Manual / Private Plate EXILE
Acid Rush Turbo - Manual (02 Plate still sitting on Showroom Floor)

Plus they have about 10 XR utes in various colours!!!!

Yeah specially if you were one of the first people to buy one, and paid full freight.

A Calais for $40 grand is ridiculous.

While Holden may still be winning the sales race (although the make a lot more cars than Ford) I think Ford will reap the benefits down the track from what they are doing now.

They may have the more expensive car for now but down the track there will be some negativity towards the Holdens for the seriously sheizen resale values...

I think you will find these are either 2002 plated if new or ex-demos . And the Statesman a run-out model .

Yes the Statesman is a runout model, but the other cars are brand new.

This isnt the only dealer discounting, VY SS's are now 44 drive away!!!!!!
