  1. Re: Sources: Lincoln Considering RWD Flagship Sedan

    They do know about it. Mulally wanted a G6ET as his company car a couple of years ago. With Falcon and Mustang about to get a whole lot closer, Lincoln will tie in with them for its RWD platform.

    Re: Petrol types/brands etc

    For my Falcon, it's either BP Unleaded 95, or Mobil (7/11) Premium 95.

    The X5 lives on a diet of BP Ultimate.

    Re: The Euro is Doomed.

    So what, can we expect a return to the Franc, Deutschmark, and Lira?

    I can imagine that the Germans would love to walk away from the Euro, and let the poorer countries look after themselves?

    Re: warping rotors

    Don't worry about genuine ones. Firstly, Ford will charge you an arm and a leg for them, but mostly, because the aftermarket ones are so much better. I've got RDAs on my EF now, and they're...

    I don't want to quote myself, but it appears that I was right. The front Discs have gone U/S, however that is a blessing in disguise. The pads that were installed at Ford were incorrect for the...

    Re: "Ford kills upgrade of ageing engine"

    The I6 makes Euro V. It did it without any fancy pants DI (it has to have SI - it ain't a Diesel), or any futuristic Alloy Block. It made Euro V as an Iron Lump, and injectors in the inlet...

    Re: warping rotors

    I think you may be right.

    My EF does not have the factory rotors in it. It has slotted and drilled DBA Rotors, which went on in (according to the receipt that I have) 2007. I bought the car in...

    Re: Ford Territory Diesel v. Rivals

    Toyota isn't scared of the Chinese. They are mostly scared of Hyundai. Once they get their act together and make their cars handle, they will be unstoppable.

    JP, it got off topic when we started talking about cores in radiators, and how they affect cooling. I didn't realise that my brakes were cooled by my Natrad.

    Exactly. The thread will be closed unless we can get back on topic. Quickly.

    That being said - My EF keeps warping rotors at a surprising rate. I got them machined in January, and they're...

    Re: First look - 2013 Taurus

    I like it. If it didn't weigh as much as a Territory, I'd probably consider one.

    Does the base model remind anyone else of a modern Crown Victoria?

    Re: 2012 Holden Malibu/Epica

    The one thing I will ask, is why do the Yanks insist on using buttons on the gear stick for the Manual Mode controls, instead of a gate like the Japs, the Euros and us?

    Re: 2012 Holden Malibu/Epica

    Should Holden get this, where will it be built? It is not an Insignia, so not in Europe, and Daewoo won't be building this (will they?), so, it might have to come from the USofA.

    Re: 2012 Holden Malibu/Epica

    Yes. Opel owns Vectra, and clearly, the Epica was no Vectra.

    I'll add in here that we all have short memories. From 1998 to 2001, Holden assembled the Vectra locally. It proved to be a big loss...

    You will be surprised at how close they were to taking Tonsley Park over in 2008. It should have happened, but they got cold feet. If it happens again, Tonsley Park is still the desired location.
