    Yeah based on Ozzie pricing you'd be right FJ - I think 5-7 grand on a F6 Ute

    Isn't that because of the new Luxury Car tax is Aussie? IF so the price in NZ would be lower, whouldn't it? :geek:

    NO thats before the luxury car tax hasn't come in yet - arrives June 1 and adds something like 1400 to a GT

    You sure it was an FG FPV??

    I have an invite to the official FG FPV launch in Chch tomorrow and Wednesday, So doubt someone in Auckland will be driving one around cos they're not on sale yet. Neutral

    Its good you got an invite FJ - I haven't had one. Can't believe how thick Ford are at times. Two weeks ago I asked for pricing etc. on the new F6 ute. Last week I got in the mail a survey on how satisfied I am with my F6 etc. NO mention of the new model or invite to come in and have a look.

    Duh - their marketing people are fuckwits in my honest opinion

    you are 100% correct. For the rest of the public's perception you would not even be aware there was a new model even released. We know this would not happen on the red side. The promo over there makes ford look stupid!!. Anyway my car is due end of this week so can't wait

    No it's not there yet. John said he thought later in the week. I think I will do all the parts deliveries to them myself at end of the week. My salesmen at work reckons i will be on hourly visits of it until I can take it away. That is going to be hard to see it just sit there and not drive it.
