So did EF, El etc - they are all Fords, all Falcons, and (like it or not) all related. Why do some people think that the BA is not related to any previous falcon ever built?
There is no conspiracy, it is called minimising R&D costs, (or maximising the ammortisation over a larger volume of the same component). They will probably still give it a BA part number though, and charge you twice as much as the similar EF item! Sorry to get off track slightly, but BA 'snobs' give me the sh!ts.
