Just Keeps Getting Better 18600klm

:wnc
Well the beasty is almost at the 20000klm milestone now and just getting better. I spent 6 days in an AVIS VX Crappadore and soon realised how fortunate I am. I noticed a bit of negativity popping up here and there on the site and I would say that it is easy to forget that first week feeling when you get used to the car and become more complacent of it.
I reckon 90% of people would give their left goolie to have a ride in a GT let alone have one to drive every day. IMHO, taking the time to appreciate the car and to remember what your driving only enhances the pleasure even more. I'm going to get one of Barry Battens new thermostats fitted on Fri Arvo and go for a decent drive away for the weekend. Look out Al I might be hauling through Mandurah

How very true with your statements,all i can say is we are the fortunate or lucky ones that can experience the BA GT. There certainly are lots of GTs on the roads and are quite affordable to depending on what package that you get.

Good one Doc. Despite any short comings, the BA GT is a bloody good car.

Engine replacements etc....etc ...etc...The ba get my thumbs up in interior and exterior...but the mechanical side sux. Fine...you guys have a good car..maybe one in ever 500 made.....what about the rest of us.....next time you submit a post of how good your car is compared to the rest of us poor idiots ...think twice about the unfortunate one's. Your just rubbing even more salt into the wound.

One Unhappy BA owner.
Do you want a list!!!!!!!?
you just cant let them have a possitive thread about there BA GT's.
so everytime someone wants to post a possitive thread they should think about all owners, i think not this is about personal expirence and its all gooooood...
ON yah Doc, while i dont have a GT i still totally enjoy my BA.. after many runs at Calder no problems here....
