No, its not metellic Stylist.

Thats some damm good sales figures for FPV.

I've been told that the initial rush for BA's in general is starting to slide slightly though and the factory is slowly starting to catch up.

I suspect that Blood Orange must be a very difficult colour to apply. Can your very very close to the top contact confirm that it is a colour that will stay in the line up and if not what will replace it and when?

Blood Orange will stay for now but there is at least one more colour under threat of extinction as the range is slowly revised. Looking at the colour chip for "Luscious" - the new red - it is a cross between Sparkling Burgundy and the colour it replaces (Barossa). Not too bad at all.

Russell,

Do you have any info on the possible new daffodil like colour mentioned by Boss GT? l would love a GT in that colour which l imagine as being like that used by Holden on the Monaro.

We are looking at a July build/August delivery so we may be in luck if this colour does become available. What is the other colour that may get the chop?

Cheers

the basic falcon has a black engine bay, do all the FPV vehicles have the engine bay the same color as the exterior & what is ment by prestige paint as an option on FPV vehicles

Prestige paint applies to any of the non solid colours in the current range (which is most of them), Don't know why they even bother.

On the few occasions I've had my head under an FPV bonnet I have been looking at other things - will make a point of checking. I know the XR8's don't and it wasn't done with T3 either although the earlier T-Series did.

Cheers

he did not tell me what colours will be replaced but i would imagine that it would be the low selling ones.i was told about the barossa possibly going so that would be likely to happen.

In the case of Barossa - it has happened.
It's replacement comes on stream from July.
