I am thinking about buying a TS50 that I think my local dealer is having trouble offloading in wake of the GT's. I really like the car but just want to know how you think it stacks up to the GT's. Also does anyone here know the 0-100 times for the auto TS50's?

I'm old fashioned, i too thought the T SERIES represented what a GT is. Having only driven manual xr8 [DP'S is still coming,BLUEPRINT/PHANTOM manual] the GT will have to be a lheap wilder before it lives up to what this old fashioned fella thinks a GT should be. Having sounded to be puting the xr8 down, if the GT drives anything like xr8 it will be one hell of a car,one that holden drivers will never understand.I believe the GT will be so good at what it does, it will take FORD SUPPORTERS a while to figure it out.
Originally posted by testdriven Hi, I'm currently employed as FTE/FPV service advisor major Ford dealer, I've road tested numerous T-Series over 400kms per test drive per car, like to hear from anyone with any questions or queries.
Hello Testdriven and welcome aboard. Can you tell me what your customers perceptions are of receiving their car after a service with an extra 400kms on the clock?

My customers are so relieved to deal with some one who doesn't
tell them what they want to hear, that they are more than happy to leave their cars with me for the weekend to drive home and back, some seventy plus kilometers, with their knowledge. So I dont ever have that problem. With customer expectations as they
are, driving the car for an extended period of time allows me to tune into some of the issues raised by the client. Most times I find I have more issues with the car than the owner does.
The unfortunate side of it is that some issues refuse to fault even after driving the car 400kms. It may just depend on the driver and their style of driving in some cases. What I do know is that my FTE customers are very satisfied with the outcome and the service provided based on our customer follow up system.
I own a TE50 AU3, and on the whole I love it. i did have an early problem with a valve retainer letting go. Have you heard of any other mechanical problems with the 5.6. Mine is a manual, and the backlash problem is an irritation. Have been tempted by the new GT, however I am unsure of how much more driver pleasure it would bring.
