First Barra at Work
A group of us just went out to checkout our works first BA. It's an XT Wagon in Acid Rush, one damn bright wagon.
It was also my first ride in a BA Wagon. A few things that the rep guys noted was how much better the air con is compared to the AU's. All agreed that the engine was smoother and has a nice exhaust note. I'm now curious what the wagon will weigh as it doesn't have the control blade rear end. It could just well be that the wagon might be the sleeper of the range having the same body style from the A pillar back.
But my conclusion is that Ford are really turning out these Barras in huge numbers. So much so that we noticed the tailgate was misaligned quite badly.
I hope to see our entire car fleet change to Barras by mid next year.
