General Australian automotive and Ford related discussion
It was suggested by FOCUSCDI (so send abuse his way hehe) that we should start a thread for people to announce that they've just seen a new model on the road. This doesn't include prototypes (they'll usually deserve their own threads) just things like upgraded models. For example back when the 380...

i have a potential cortina to buy but it comes from Victoria, is it possible to buy a cheap rolling shell cortina in SA and use the number plate on the other cars
Its a really nice cortina, almost race ready, just not registered in SA
any help would be appreciated
Since there have been a few threads on the forum recently about what size wheel and trye combinations fit what, I thought I'd start one about correctly matching the rolling diameter of different wheel and tyre fitments.
To do the calculations, I've used the Miata Tire Size Calculator.
Hi everyone. I'm looking for anyone with an XD with the factory paint code Y0455, its not Y045, corporate blue as its a dark fine metallic blue. Who has one or knows of another one?.
I've found a factory 351 4 speed GL painted in it.
Hi guys, quick question about my car keys for a 2007 Mk II Falcon Futura wagon. I have the key with the 4 button remote that is seperate from the key, the typical BF style key. However I want to change it to the 3 button flick key common amongst BF Mk III and FG Falcons.
Can anyone tell me how to apply for a certificate of authenticity for my 2008 GT .
Does anyone know where one can purchase this from? It is an add on that goes on the front lip of the car. Searched around online but no luck so far. A place called Sydney Utes had it but can no longer get them.

Don't know how but just managed to get a deposit on a XR6 Turbo Sprint. One very happy man. Very curious to find out what people's choice of colour would be. Wife & I have a couple of days to agree on a colour. Would love your input.
I just received my delivery of a 1971 Falcon, i'm unlikely to every own a mint condition GTHO, so this 1:8 scale kit is the next best thing. Body parts are painted very nicely and it even has carpet and roof lining. The v8 engine is already built and see below to how it looks. I've started the...
Hey guys. Just have an issue with my falcon. When I apply the brakes in my 2000 AUII XR6, the drivers head light and the dash and gear selector bulbs illuminate although the lights are meant to be off. Has anyone come across this before?
Howdy all. I own a PJ 07 Ranger. I bought new factory seatbelts for the front. I'm unable to remove the top plastic cover at the top anchor point. I was suspecting that the cover was a clip on, the amount of force That I have tried to remove is more than I care for. I would appreciate any...

I was just wondering, my mother has a 2007
XT Falcon and when charging her battery, my father told her to connect the negative clamp onto the engine rather than the battery itself. I have an AUII 2000 falcon and was wondering if I should be doing the same, and if so, why.
For the latest 2 days my 5 litre Fairlane has sounded more like a diesel and the engine was missing like a coward in wartime.
Suspected ignition problems. One of the 2 coils perhaps.
Or a lead. Or the computer needed resetting after disconnecting the battery. It was also making crazy knocking...

If one buys a new car cash (ie with your own money) can one refuse to see both the fabric and protection salesperson and the finance salesperson as he/she will often try to sell you an extended warranty.
Would a flat refusal to talk to these people make the car dealer nervous of ones intentions?,...
Can you get an extended warranty on a second hand Ford, under 3 years old and under 100000k if you purchased it from a non Ford dealer?
Small print seems to say you cant
How does the pricing work for the 3 levels available?

It seems the recently "Leaked" Details from Wheels Mag were correct, and Ford have released the news embargo on the new XR8 & XR6T Sprints - sadly the last ever performance Ford Falcons ever to be produced.
Massive power increase for the XR6T and a modest 10Kw Official increase for the XR8...
Not a bad review - The XR8 Sprint has "enormous personality" and is a rare "Loveable" car !

Hi guys, new on here so forgive me if this has been asked and answered in the last year or so.
can anyone tell me what 15" chaser/steel wheels will bolt straight up to a TE sedan? I've heard Focus/Festiva/Mondeo possibly. I've also heard Saab 900 and Mazda 121 wheels will bolt on.
