every one to there own I guess, if he thinks his EA Ghia in his eyes is better then that is up to him I guess.... me personally, like many have said later models always usually perform, handle and have better equipement levels than previous models otherwise why change cars?? I prefer my EL alot better than the EA I had, but still prefer my EL to the AU we also have.... as far as an EA to BA comparison there isnt one, you cant compare, not even close

airbags
ABS
sequential automatic
decent seats
remote locking
failsafe cooling
42kw

BBM
Traction Control

Reversing Sensors..

while i like my ea and have looked after it,,the mechanical side compared to the newer ba's is no comparison..the interior i the ba i rode in was very bland and lifeless,,i didn't like it at all..

as for ipaddresses,,don't get to wrapped up in them,unless it is static you have no chance,,as a computer is assigned a new ip address eveytime it is restarted or reconnected to the internet.

How can you guys be so narrow minded......

My ea ghia has a full 139k, the BA has 182kw, ok I acknowledge that. BUT!!!! it also has about 250kw of weight. What is 43kw gonna do to bridge that gap. Are you guys stunned?

There are three things that a certain in life, death, taxes and my ea ghia will beat a BA ghia in luxury, performance, looks (arguable) and handling (after I but 215 tyres on it.

Half of those things you dont need......

Airbags, who uses them? I dont intend on using them
ABS, ok fair point
Sequential auto, mine is as smooth as Silicone spray
My seats are better, lets watch the BA leather crack
My car has remote locking
Failsafe cooling, mine doesnt get hot
42kw and 250kg weight to offset it
The rest of the stuff is useless and no way worth 45k?

Im starting to talk you guys round arnt I?? :wink:
