Question Diff between orig BA and MKII BA?

Hi all.. sorry if this has been done before, I couldnt find any info...

Whats the difference betwen the original BA Falcon sedan, and the BA MKII?
Is there a comprehensive list available on the web somewhere? I'd imagine most changes would be cosmetic..?

Thanks

Ding (BA MKII SR)

If it was a Commodore, they'd call it a new model

Re: Diff between orig BA and MKII BA?

Auto headlights are sensor driven, basically if your driving round and its set to auto, the sensors detect whether its time to switch on or not, unfortunately, they are alittle sloppy and sometimes they need to be on, but they arent, easier just to use human perception i think. Still, its cool to tell your mates about

you have been listening to the ponderings of a mad man

...A waste of time.!

On a Holden, they're called "Look at Me" lights.

WOW....

If it was a Commodore, they'd call it a new model
heh... Looks like stuff all.. Only thing I knew that was different
was paint colors.. went to buy an Acid Rush jobbie, and it's not
available :(

So the list is:
6 sp manual
boot badge
paint colors
auto lights.

As you said... WOW!

Thanks to all who replied..
