Question BA Improvements?

G'day all
I am generally a Holden fan (yeah boo hiss :)) but I might be a BA Falcon owner in the near future end of 03 or during 2004 (if all goes well).
The XR's and FPV are my type of styles.

But any how back to the original question what would you owners/buyers like to see improved on the series 2 BA?

Maybe like an XR6T wagon?
Or turbo engine options on Fairmont Ghia and on new BA LTD and Fairlanes ?
Stuff like that.
Im interested in your views.

Cheers.

XR6/8 PANEL VAN - WAGON! or for the dreamers......FPV PV™
I'm happy with the current BA range.... Except it would be nice to see DUAL ZORSTS™ on the GT and for the Fairmont to actually LOOK like a Fairmont from side on eg continue the chrome strip right around the car, instead of how it is now... only on bumpers. :s6:

Ooh and a wait reduction to stop whingeing journalists

Weight reduction across the board.
18's standard on the XR8
Dual exhaust on the XR8/FPV product.
Other than that.. Can't think of much else..

better door trims!
its really the only area of the BA interior i dont like they feel and look cheap. EL XR/fairmont and AU11 door trims/pull handles were much better imo.

less weight.

oil/amp guage on high series/fpv range i know it been said a hundred times but im sure if they were fitted no one would be complaining about them being there.

dual exhaust on FPVs

did i forget to mention less weight??

As well as the weight as what people mentioned, a return of the felt soft roof lining would be welcome for the XR's and the silver/grey bumper strip would be another welcome for the XR.

Oh yeah i agree what 61sg mentioned about the oil/amp gauges for the sports model.
