Hi Guys,
today i had the hard task of driving several brand new FG's along a 60km course with several vehicle swaps along the way.

Words cannot describe how much of an improvement to drive the FG is over the BFII both on the road, and inside the cabin.

I'll leave the technical details aside and move onto the many pics i took today.

This is Part one of many as it wont let me upload many pics at once.

I can't help but think it's an overgrown mondeo.


you need to look at the cars in the flesh.
The commodore outside isnt alot worse or better but the interior and build quality is like chalk and cheese.

Dont even get me started on the toyotas hopeless interior

My mate had to take a test drive in one of the FGs last week due to Ford having some complaints about the parts they supplied. Drove a GT straight off the production line...he said the thing was an animal and that there was nothing wrong with it exterior or interior. All glory...I guess that's what you get from a GT.

If only I had his job.

phong =P~

and whats wrong with an overgrown mondeo? how can you then justify and overgrown astra?

This car will clean up in the reviews against VE methinks. the omega is to boy racer plastic and the maturity of the FG style and quality will win the judges.

Love that breeze colour.
