Don't bother not buying the higher spec car (in my opinion) as it's a pain in the a*** to get the luxury features later.

alot of it depends on what add ons are chosen e.g you can get Fairmonts GHIA with half leather interior and ones with full leather interior and so on My dad has An EBII Fairmont with full leather interior premium sound system tow ball V8 and so on LSD

I don't know if it's normal or not, but my EF mont came with an LSD. The previous owner could possibly have changed it, cos I thought LSD's only came in XR's. But mine definitely has one :D

Correct. From series II EF Ghia up to EL Ghia got the 3.45 LSD and tickford motor. Series 1 EF Ghia's, didnt get the tickford motor.

Sorry forgot to mention that was the about the Ghia's in that post. Original post has been editted.

I wouldnt have a clue about options when it comes to the normal Fairmonts though. All i know is that it has a few more items over the base model falcons.
