Launch date for BA 2

Anyone have any idea when BA2 is out? I heard from a local dealer on friday that FNZ have been told there will be no cars built in August. Then another XR owner told me today he was told the same thing, but that it was possibly for retooling, as VY2 comes out Sept and BA2 could be launched same time to cut VYs throat once and for all. Any such rumours over the ditch?

I'd be expecting BAII somewhere early '04. I hope it's sooner though.

my bro in law has this thing in his head which he tells me all the time that a ford dealer told him that there will be no series II because ford has perfected the BA and dnt need a series II.

I tell him that it is bullshit, and that the ford dealer was pullin his leg.

This one goes in the bullshit bin, definately series II coming later with six speed auto in V8 models one hot tip. Unfortunately we on this forum find out more about future models then the dealers, unless they hang out here, in which case they are true car enthusiasts and the more enjoyable people to deal with when buying a Ford.

6 speed auto. is that like the 5 speed auto in the jag? I guess the sixth 'speed' is when the TC locks when cruising?

The New Jags have 6 speed Autos, the S Type R and the just-released XJs, same autos that are in 7 Series BMWs.
I dont we're getting this one though?
