Saw them on OCAU but will say it again, fantastic looking car. Now get in there and drive it around hehe.

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

Yep, the BA XR8's a nice lookin car. Too bad they dropped Blood Orange, I reckon it looks just that tiny bit nicer than Mandarin. Still a nice colour though.

WOOOO love that Mandarin on XR8's!

Falcon Killer (if you believe what Ford Service Departments have to say about me)
AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....

45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
* etc...

Stand both Mandarin and Blood Orange together in sunlight, imo Mandarin is a much nicer.
