Don't laugh guys; I saw one of those wings (well extremely similar) on an XD Falcon.

I think the only reason you'd flog him is because of that rear wing, must add sum shick killlowattt moitt.
I'm guessing your car has 300 rwkw (rw not meaning rear wheel, but rear wing )

Guys, the idea is that when this Magna is travelling at High speed, it actually provides so much downforce that it reduces the weight on the drive (front) wheels!

But seriously, I don't mind the look of Magnas, IMO, lose the wing (maybe just a small one instead) and the clear tail lights and maybe the gold paintjob and it'd be nice.

We had a company Altera (Fairmont of Magnas for Ford guys) at work with Sunroof and mags and it was ok, it just went through 3 Autos in 70,000, one of the other guys owned an Executive and his was on it's second Auto (35,000k).

The Altera had quite a few issues and the Auto in both of them had quite a large amount of lag before downchanging if you gave it some, it'd rev out to over 5k and then kick down and then you'd have power

I know quite a few people with Magnas and I don't actually mind the Magnas but they seem to have Durability and reliability issues, especially with the transmissions, even dating back to the 80's models.

Reliablity of magnas are actually quite good as long as you don't buy a auto! :)
I've had very little problems with my 1998 TF magna 5 Speed.

As for the wing on booyas magna, well, each to there own taste I guess :) I like my smaller wing :)








Thanks guys!

P.S - I think the new BA Falcon is a farkin horn looking car! :)

Now THAT'S a nice Magna ash3!! I'm not a fan of giant spoilers myself. A lowering and a nice set of rims will do it for me anyday
