Sorry, what's with that double post? Anyway, if it wasnt for the work Ford did with AU in conjunction with BHP Steel, the BA would weigh two tonne at least. And i prefer a safer car than to save, as Wheels put it "$2 a week". So whats the point in saving weight? AU II scored top marks in ANCAP testing. If its puerly an economy measure, the weight loss, then I recon my scull is worth the extra two bucks for the added saftey.
But four dollars, well, that would be different...
