Read Pics: Our New Fairmont Ghia

Picked it up yesterday after about 11 weeks after ordering it.
Went with Mercury Silver, wasn't too sure about the colour when ordering it but in the flesh im very happy with it. Satnav is pretty cool although the voice volume is too low :( The V8 is nice, doesn't feel as fast at the moment as our old GenIII Calais. The ride is alot smoother and really quiet in the cabin. One thing is the fog lights are on all the time even when you have the parkers or Headlights on and i can't find the switch ?

Damn, they certainly are a nice looking car.
My friends family has the new calais and there is just no comparision between it and the Ghia's interior. I personally prefer the Ghia hands down

white

XT and Futura have Green LED dash lights (as opposed to the light bulbs used in every other falcon up to AU)

Fairmont and Fairmont Ghia have White LED's.

XR models have Blue LED's with 'XR' logo outlined in the tacho and speedo.

Very nice car champ !
How classy does it look ?! Ford must've known how guys would react when they released it, with the complementary tissuebox and all :)

by the way you cant turn the parking lamps of that are fitted in the front bar. They are not fog lamps, just 20 watt parkers, so thats why you wont find a switch for them.
