    Read the comparison drive between the GTF and a R8 HSV and the R8 still came out ahead in the Magazine Authors opinion.

    Once a taxi always a taxi.

    Still a very good car, Aussie gold and I would be proud to own it. Thumbs up to Ford for churning this out with a lopsided balance sheet.

    Thats not confirmed as the interior right? We are just assuming is is unchanged from the FG?

    It will be changed, while not a major change I think, there will be.
    Plus that photo is a MkI not a MkII.

    I can't believe I am saying this but the Taurus is a nicer looking car. I hated the first one that came here, with everything that was oval. It was so bad the wheels may has well have been oval as well.

    You can see in this photo, the interior is the same as FGII. The only difference is revised ICC button functions to work with Ford Sync and from an earlier spy photo it looks like they've added a line of stitching to the existing door trims. They were never going to refresh the interior for a 2 year run.

    Davison write up on the Falcon is the most comprehensive and accurate review of the Falcons issues I have ever read.

    Happy to be in a VF Redline after many years of Fords.

    I fully agree! Fords have been the only cars I have owned in over 20 years and now I have a VF SS-V! Who would have thought?

    We should start a 'Ford converts' sub-forum for us to all talk about how happy we are to have made the switch. ;)
