The BA owes its existance to the AU, a large percentage of the car is still AU.
Those people that own AUs know they are good cars and are much better than the VX Commodore, it handles better and the series 2 and 3 with the Fairmont bonnet lowered with a decent set of rims looks one of the meanest cars on the road.
it was just that bloody horrible grill on the AU1 that turned every one off because they listened to so called experts......
In the years to come, I believe that the AU will be mistaken as the Newer model to the BA, it was just ahead of its time.
I dont want a BA, I am more than happy with my AUII XR8 its a fantastic car, looks good and doesnt get confused with other models of the AU. After taking a BA XR8 for a spin, I am even more happier with my car, granted it doesnt have the same power but the BA felt like a truck, the AU feels so much more compact and tighter than the BA.
I get a bit sick of everyone knocking the AU but dont forget people where the BA came from....no AU no BA....
