Some BA Changes???

We received a notice from Ford today, just telling us how good the BA is and how it recently was awarded the best Australian Performance car by Motor etc, anyway, some changed that were highlighted was that:

From september on Premium sound would be an option in all XR models? I thought you could get premium sound in a XT if you wanted?

From August on they are removing the Cup holden lid in XT's and Futuras.

Re: Some BA Changes???

By all models I would assume that it means they are going to make Premium sound available on the XR Utes. (Previously unavailable)


There are 3 levels of sound, Standard, Prestige and Premium. XT only has the option of Standard or Prestige (colour ICC screen, a little more power)

Re: Some BA Changes???

dont quote me on this but this is how I think it goes:

XT - Standard - can upgrade only to Prestige
XR's GT's - Standard (is the Prestige or is it the same as XT standard?!) and upgrade is Premium...

I know the premium wasnt availabe on XT's...

Re: Some BA Changes???

I don't understand either. However I would be very upset if Premium Sound became available on utes......if I couldn't get a retrofit upgrade that is.

Yeah I will not be happy if they came out and said the utes can get premium, gawd I wanted that colour screen and sub

And it will be easy to fit a 10" sub in the ute...
