BA Series 2 ?

I just ordered an XR8 (Blood Orange). I wanted to go Acid Rush until the second I signed the order I changed my mind, but that's a different story. What I want to know:

Is the XR that will be built July 2003 going to be current for much longer or do Ford do what Holden do and have a BA Series 2 type machine coming out ? If so, when ?

Re: BA Series 2 ?

Although Holden will be launching their series 2 models towards the end of this year, the series 2 BA is not due until the beginning of 2004 at the earliest. My bet is March for the mainstream models and June for the FPV GT/GTP. LWB maybe even longer.

As for upgrades to the XR8, I wouldn't expect much to change. Gear ratios and a little wait loss is all I would expect at best with some now optional features made standard as past history dictates. It will be the turbo with a new manual box that has the most to gain, but expect the cost to rise according.

If you’re ready the buy now and can afford some Herrod style enhancements, then you will not be too disappointed when series 2 comes out IMO.

Re: BA Series 2 ?

In the section called "Performance Car Pipeline" in Motor Magazine it lists the Ford BA II facelift in 2004. It doesn't say in what month, but you can probably bet it will be somewhere in the first half of the year.
This is what I am also waiting on before I go spending.

Cheers :-)

Definately mid to late 2004. Territory will be launched around March and the BA2 will be months later. Territory has to get off the ground first before BA2 can come out. That is firsthand info.
