I agree dude...

Ive got an EL Futura and drive BA's at work.....and always look forward to jumping in my EL at the end of the day.

My EL just seems more "real" to drive.

Ride: EF Falcon

i cant say ive driven a BA, but having driven an AU and comparing it to my EF, (my new suspension aside) it wasnt as nice to drive, had no real feeling, it almost felt numb to drive... really weird...

the BA's def feel so much heavier in the acc pedal than EF's - i couldn't believe how much effort it took to keep it at speed compared to mine :?

Ride: '97 EL XR6

Location: Cairns
QLD, Australia

I like my EL to drive but I would prefer my BA XR6 again as a driver. Once you were use to all the little quirks in it (accelerator pedal, brakes, steering, grip limit) it is a great car to drive. EL is better for the mod side.

TAS, Australia

I have only driven 1 BA(A hire car with 10k on the clock)
and I was not inpressed.
It was s**t to s**t in, it used a s**t load of fuel.
My old Ef fairmont s**t all over it (I have now sold it for a 4X4 to tow the boat)

Waiting for the BF to arrive at Hertz and I will give one a work out.

Ride: EF Fairmont

Location: Melbourne

I've driven my dads BA, and although it feels heavier on the accelerator and when steering, it is good to drive, it rides perfectly, you can hardly tell you're hitting bumps on the road, and alhough it accelerates at about the same speed as my EF Fairmont, you can hardly tell you are, and overtaking is a breeze on highways...but it does feel numb to drive, like nicco said...compared to the EF which is a joy to drive

pfft.

The e-series has crap steering feedback, the ride is choppy, interior trim rattles, driving position is annoying and live rear axles are so last century :)

*awaits flames*
