Official spec is:

AU2 XR8 220kW manual V8
Silhouette Prestige Paint
Sunroof
Body Kit
Premium Brakes
Premium 250W Sound 6CD
Sports Momo Wheel and Gear Shifter
Tow Pack 1600kg
XR Carpet Mats
Slimline Weathershields

Dealer is Rudy Mihajlovski at City Ford Sydney. Great guy. No hassles - just service and the right numbers first up. Plus the cars come on ONE truck from Broadmeadows to City Ford (less chance of damage, and done overnight).

Delivery scheduled within 8 weeks. I'm happy for Ford to take their time and build me a special car :)

Hey guys - no big deal about this. Sure I'm excited but I'm just arriving where most of you already are .

I will post the pictures from the car build from the Ford website. I'm going to make sure I'm at Tickford when the car comes through so I can take more build photos and write you guys a story on how it all happens!

Check out Ford online. You used to be able to watch your car being made over the net. You can also get photos of it over the production line at different stages

Congrats Pete!

I just wish I was in the position to get a new car right now, but it will have to be late next year for me, then I will finally join the ranks (and will be the last one probably).:(

About the ford online section, what has happened to it, I can't seem to find it on the site, that is where they had sketches, stories, etc:?:

Yeah, counter balance assembly was the problem, then when I was supposed to pick it up (Monday) I am told that it has happened again (after they fixed it), so an extra day was needed. They found that the new CAM belt had slipped or something and the likely cause not tensioned properly. Wasn't charged for the extra time spent on it..

So the bill was for:

counter balance shaft belt and pulley, new water pump, and cam belt, $750 total, $280 of that labour.

It better last until AV arrives..:fmad:
